Day 1 - Arrival in Malta

Tuesday 13th May 2009

It was a late arrival for us in Malta, our first time to the country/island, but given that it was after 11pm by the time we exited the airport it was very difficult to draw any conclusions or make any other kind of observation about the place, except one: good God our hotel room smelled bad! Despite the room looking apparently clean and tidy, there was a strange musty smell (damp) but the bathroom, which was also clean and seemingly looked after, had the worst smell. We unpacked our stuff, not sure how things might pan out for the rest of the week but hoped for the best. Midnight, time for sleep – proper exploration would begin tomorrow.
