Bob Is Back.

Hello everyone, how are you? As you will see we are back safe and well from our trip to Malta. We had a really great time and can’t wait to go again. As you will know if you read my blog before I went that I was unsure what to expect as I purposely did no research so as not to arrive with any preconceived ideas about the place. Its easy to read about a place and either be pleasantly surprised or disappointed by the reality so I just wanted to go and make my own mind up about the place. It was all so different to what I’m used too so much so that when I first saw the place I wondered what I’d let myself in for but after a couple of days I really relaxed and began to enjoy myself and by the end I was really sad to be leaving. The weather was brill, just blue skies all day and everyday, the Maltese people were really friendly and did whatever they could to make us feel welcome. I took loads of pics of plants, gardens, buildings, views and a few other things besides so I will show you some of them over the coming posts. Tonight I will just show you a few pics of us and our friends.
This first picture is of Vicki and our friend John who was an absolute star without whom we would only have seen a fraction of the things we did. He showed us just about every Nook and cranny there is on the island of Malta even though at times he was suffering, so if you read this John, thanks once again for making our holiday so enjoyable.
Here is another picture of John, although I think really its supposed to be of the building and courtyard.

This one is of me Vicki and our other friend Tony, this was taken at the airport as we were saying goodbye. Unfortunately Tony had to work so wasn't able to come with us everyday but even so he still managed to devote several days to us all of which were fun packed and interesting.
This picture is of me and Vicki, I'm sorry I can't tell you where its taken as I didn't know were I was half the time, I think it was taken on the second day of our visit, we were just having a walk along the water front after a lovely meal, it was nice just to sit in the sun at the water front restaurants drinking wine and watching the world go by.
Well I will leave it there for today, I will post some more of our pics tomorrow.

So "Bob is back." Welcome back! I have never been to Malta so I will be looking forward to hearing about it and seeing you pictures.

I have made an award to you of the "You Make The World A Better Place" award. Merle gave this to me, I couldn't see that you had received this one.
The details are on my JIM'S LITTLE BLOG. I hope you like it.
