Flag of Malta  , Island of Malta,
Sunday, February 22, 2009

Time is a commodity that has been absent from our lives recently - that is to say that we have had time, of course that ticks by regardless - but not time to spend with each other alone. John has been struggling to finish a project for university. He's on the last leg of his degree now, June will bring a close on five years of damned hard work and perseverance and needless to say - having just handed in pages and pages and pages of A4 typing, we've been a bit like passing ships in the night recently.

More than anything else, we are just looking forward to time together just to relax and take things as they come.

Picking up our hire car at Malta airport was really funny - the man behind the desk really couldn't have cared less - you might want to take a look at the petrol gauge before you go, you might want to look at any damages before you go, you might want to look at .... You get the idea. The rentals place looked like a car hire graveyard if you ask me!!! Every single car in there was bumped, scratched, dented or bashed about in some way - seriously not one single undamaged car in there - hmmm, lets see how it is driving here. Well, the rules of the road seem to be - there are no rules and weaving in and out of the tiniest gap, that isn't really even a gap is perfectly acceptable - so, if we make it through the week without getting any additional scrapes I think we'll be lucky.

Before we came here, everyone we spoke to who had been to Malta said it's a place you either love or hate - there is no in between, so we shall see.
