Our first weekend in Malta
After a flight of approximately three hours Sylvia and I arrived at the airport in Malta. When we came out of the airplane we immediately felt the heat, which we were not really used to in the Netherlands. We went to the main hall and there a girl from AM-language was standing to pick us up and bring us to the host family. Our host family is in the centre of Sliema, so everything is very close to our home.
After changing our clothes (because of the heat we needed to put on some shorts), we went to the shop of our host to say hello. She told us everything we needed to know about Sliema. Afterwards we walked through Sliema to see what we could do around there and did a bit of shopping. In the evening we met with a friend from our home city, who is also in Malta for his internship.
On Sunday we went to Valletta, the capital city of Malta. We walked around the city, which was very beautiful and very different in comparison with Sliema. After seeing the city we went to Golden Bay. It was an hour drive from Valetta, but it was definitely worth it! In Malta there aren’t many sand beaches, so we decided to go to Golden Bay. We have been relaxing and swimming on the beach for the rest of the afternoon. At around 5 p.m. we went home with the bus, which is kind of a struggle in Malta because of the small and busy roads. After arriving in the host family we prepared ourselves for a night out. We went to dinner in a pizzeria at the boulevard of Sliema and walked around in Paceville, a small district near Sliema.
Today we had to be at AM-language at half past eight to get the information about the internships we will start with tomorrow. After a short introduction we went to both of our internships to make sure that we were able to find it tomorrow. After finding it we went to the Sint John’s Co-cathedral in Valletta. It was a cathedral entirely covered in gold and it was really amazing to see.
After a tour through the cathedral we decided to go back to Sliema and do a bit of shopping. We went to the Point, a big shopping centre at the edge of Sliema.
Tonight we will have our welcome party of AM-language in Paceville. We will definitely have a great time!
I will post some pictures when the wifi is working better!
During the next few days I will be posting more reports of our time here in Malta!
