A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be visited by two of my closest friend from Leicester. Andy and Harry, like myself, are on an Erasmus year abroad but in Bologna. I was very much looking forward to their visit and in the few days they were in Malta we saw a lot of the island of Malta.
Once picking them up for the airport we headed into Malta’s capital, Valletta. After showing them the key sites like the Upper and Lower Barrakka Gardens and the general streets of Valletta we headed to The Point Shopping Mall in Sliema to shop and take a much needed reunion selfie with the classic view of Valletta in the background.

The following day we decided to make the most of the wonderful weather and headed to the famous San Anton Palace Gardens for a picnic. To finish off the day I took them to see the Mosta Rotunda, whose dome is the third largest self-supporting dome in the world. However, what makes a visit to this church unique is that the church was bombed in the Second World War but luckily the bomb did not go off and can still be seen in the church today.

The last two days were spent visiting historical sites in Malta such as Mdina and the Hagar Qim and Mnajdra temples where, once again, a group photo was much needed!
All in all I has the most amazing few days showing two of my closest friends around the beautiful island of Malta, and I heard that they enjoyed it just as much too!
