Banksia Park South Australia
- Knowledgeable tour leader who was only too happy to impart her love of Malta and Gozo, it's people, it's culture and its vast history.
Whilst I understand that May/June is normally a great time to visit Malta, unfortunately due to climatic conditions being as such (driest period in some 97 years) the countryside looked somewhat barren and desolate!! The weather incidentally was in the mid 20's throughout our stay and several "hardy souls" went swimming in both Gozo and Malta.
Both islands are "hysterically" interesting (temples on both Gozo and Malta) pre dating the Egyptian pyramids; the reign of the Knights of St. John together with the English influence definitely made for a most enjoyable experience. Whilst there were a numerous highlights throughout the tour, the one that I will personally remember above all, is visiting the National Theatre and listening to two accomplished pianists "practicing" for a forthcoming recital - brilliant!!
Tips - what is the Nike theme? - "Just do it"!!
