Sixteen months ago, in the chill of an early Canadian winter, I had visions of island breezes sweeping over blue Mediterranean waters and a craggy Maltese shoreline. Since that night, I've always wondered whether the dreamy machinations of my mind would match the Malta of real life. Last week, I (finally) went to find out.
Here's a sneak preview of my Malta in March. More posts to come.
Well, I guess this sort of takes the suspense out of it ... I did, in fact, find my jagged Maltese shoreline complete with cooling breezes and surreal, turquoise-blue water on Comino Island, Malta. (2008).

For the love of the game. Vittoriosa, Malta. (2008).
