In the last post, our Adventures Abroad group led by Victor Romagnoli and local guide Chantelle Shaw visited the enigmatic cart track markings at Clapham Junction and came away no closer to the truth than thousands before us. The number of unsolved mysteries associated with this island nation are rapidly piling up. In this post, we are going to be on a little firmer ground as we go in search of evidence of Saint Paul in Malta. We’ll have the Bible as our chief reference source and every word of it is literally the Gospel truth, right?

In the last post from our whirlwind tour of Malta with Adventures Abroad, we took a boat cruise around Marsamxett and Grand Harbour getting a close up view of the famous forts that the Knights of St. John used to repel the Great Siege of Malta in 1565.

In this post, we’ll visit the Maltese capital of Valletta which was also the brainchild of this man and his enduring legacy to the world. Please join our small, but mighty group as we take a walking tour of this World Heritage Site. Continue reading

Like most of the people who travel with Adventures Abroad, Alison and I have an innate desire to experience the wider world both for the thrill of it and more importantly for the understanding and perspective it brings to your own life.

Writing this post after the trip, I can say without reservation that it was the right decision and the right place to go. Here’s why. Continue reading
