Malta is a small country in the Mediterranean situated between Sicily and North Africa. Frank’s father was born here and hadn’t been back for 65 years!  we stayed at the Hilton in St Julians and it was perfectly festive for the holidays.

The view wasn’t bad either

Santa even showed up at our hotel room on Christmas morning!


Tal-Petut is by far one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. Situated in the medieval village of Birgu,  an old fortified city near the grand harbor, the charming location focuses on organic, locally sourced cuisine. The food went so fast we didn’t have time to take a picture of it. 🙂

This is the neighborhood (and home) in Hamrun that Frank’s father lived in.
