Just before we moved to China, we decided to go on a bit of a road trip around Southern Spain for a couple of weeks. We were looking for beautiful scenic towns, good weather and nice beaches, and Andalusia definitely did not disappoint.
So we thought as a first family holiday, we would travel to Malta from where we live in Vienna. We chose Malta because it wasn’t too far away (2 hour flight from Vienna) and it seemed pretty westernised and if anything happened, a lot of people spoke English. However, we wanted to keep a sense of adventure to it so we decided to stay in two different places. The first 3 nights were spent in Gozo and the remaining four, in a place called Mellieha, north of the main Maltese island. We chose Mellieha because it had a beautiful beach right next to our accommodation and we thought it would be great to have some time at the beach and Penny could show off her swimming skills she has been practising at swimming lessons. Unfortunately for us, the weather wasn’t exactly beach weather. Quite the opposite actually! I realise we were unlucky as it was beautiful weather the week before, and lovely the week after as well. Typical!
