In the serach for some cheap Winter sun this year (2011), my girlfriend and I booked a bargain six night stay in the little town of Mellieha, north Malta. We had an amazingly lazy time, we ate, read, drank, burnt, slept, ate a bit more … basically we got fat and burnt. Loved it!

Feeling a slight pang of guilt midway through our stay however, we decided that we would get out of our plush, comfy 4* hotel for at least one day, and see what was out there. We decided on a tip to the Maltan capital, Valletta. A mere 2.60 Euro for an all day bus pass (tourist rate) was our chosen method of transport and we spent an hour aboard winding along the glorious coastline.  Once in Valletta we had no real plan, we just winged it, this is a snapshot of what we expereineced in Valletta.
