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?

This is my second post from a recent six day sojourn to the country of Malta with Adventures Abroad led by veteran guide and friend Victor Romagnoli. In the first post, I explained why Alison and I chose Malta as our first international destination since full vaccination allowed travel outside Canada for the first time in almost two years. I also tried to convey what it was like travelling abroad while complying with all of the Covid restrictions imposed by the jurisdictions we had to satisfy which were Canada, Germany and Malta and also Air Canada, Lufthansa and Hilton Hotels. In this post I’m going to focus on what the Adventures Abroad traveller can expect from the Maltese food and drink you’ll experience on this trip. For me this is always one of the most important aspects of visiting a new country, so please join us as we wine and dine our way through Malta. Continue reading

It’s been seventeen months since we said au revoir to our friend and Adventures Abroad guide Victor Romagnoli at the airport in Belize, little thinking or knowing that the world of travel was about to change irrevocably. 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. Armchair travel is great, but it can never replace the real deal. So while we understood and agreed that the Covid lockdown was absolutely necessary, that did not mean that we didn’t also have a great sense of frustration in not being able to travel internationally. After we were fully vaccinated, I was in regular communication with the folks at Adventures Abroad hoping that they would finally announce a guaranteed tour somewhere, anywhere. So when we learned that Victor would be leading a short tour to Malta we jumped on board immediately. 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
