Not gonna lie, I didn't even know Malta was a whole country until like a few years ago. Living in Europe really teaches you about European geography! We had a few extra vacation days to use up this summer, because the UK is a place where people who take a shittonne of vacation can actually have extra, because Europe is civilized (civilised) (well the UK used to be) (it's all going to shit now). So we thought, hey, what's a warm place that we can get to fairly easily that we haven't been to yet? Husband: Malta! Me: Like where the flufferpups are?!
