The hustle, bustle and creativity everywhere on the island was one of the first things that struck us, after having spent four months in Greece and Sicily. Whilst I love those countries also, and cherish their culture which is tightly linked to old customs and traditions, it is this latter attitude that also seems to hold them back. The old is to be cherished, respected and learnt from, for sure, but not at the expense of embracing the new and surrendering to the non-avoidable fact of constant change.
This is something Malta has not been able to ignore. Throughout history, change has been the only constant in this little nation’s backdrop. Today, one can feel this in flexible, adaptable attitudes of people and places. Construction everywhere. New shops, galleries and cafes popping out in random holes along old city walls. Proud Maltese arts and crafts and other products inspire locals and internationals alike. The air breathes freshness and inspiration. The Maltese cannot but exhale fully and completely to allow all this new energy in. I breathe. I smile. I dance. I am happy. This island does the same.

A text from our friends:

Already in airport in less than an hour. My bus driver chased another bus in the small streets of Catania. Then blocked the street, then told me to jump on that other bus. The other bus driver stopped at the next ticket machine, got out to buy me a ticket and then gave it to me to validate. Then took me to the airport. So nice! Italian service, and always with a smile.

We could tell plenty of stories to try and describe the incredible friendliness we’ve encountered in Sicily, but still wouldn’t do these jolly folks any justice. Blessed may they be. If everyone had a share of their savoir-vivre, generosity and happiness, the world would be a much better place!
