5 Photos Friday!
I like the idea of inspiring people to travel through photography, and I have plenty of inspiring photos from my travels. 5 photos Friday is a way for me to collect a few nice photos and share them under one travel relevant topic, via a short and sweet blog post. You can look forward to it every Friday! At least that’s the plan!
5 photos to inspire you to travel to Malta
My own travel to Malta was so many years ago, long before I really had any decent photography skills. Yet, the inspiring city of Valletta still spoke to me and I was able to capture some decent enough photos of the place. It’s a gorgeous city, made up of impressive sandstone structures, baroque palaces, and ruined forts. Valletta is one of the many Mediterranean port cities that I visited during my cruise ship days, but it remains one of my favorite places of all time. I hope to return some day to explore the city more and see what other treasures the island of Malta holds.
Rachel - Yes, I’ve been there twice for work-related things and once on a family vacation. It’s lovely, and people are so friendly! The only thing that annoyed me was in the summer, when the English schools are in session. Then there are hordes of over-excited teenagers everywhere!
traciehowe - Oh nice! I didn’t encounter any teenagers, but would agree that they are annoying. Haha! ;)
Sally - I love the architecture! These pictures do make me want to go! I went to Malta as a cild but have yet to re visit! I have heard in the summer they do some live music festivals where you can camp. I may give that a try!
traciehowe - I didn’t know about the music festivals. It seems like a lovely place to enjoy camping and music!
Natalie Deduck - You didn’t have photography skills during that trip to Malta? Seriously?
The pics are beautiful! Malta always has been in my travel dreams, but until now we didn’t manage to go there. Your pictures just prove me that I should go there soon!
traciehowe - Thanks Natalie! No, my skills weren’t quite up to par in my opinion, of course I always look back on old work and want to improve. I hope you can go soon! I’ll join you in dreaming of going back!
Sandrine - Your pics show the contrast between the verticality of the ancient buildings and the sea, they’re beautiful. The clash between the liquid sea and the solid land, this is poetic.
traciehowe - Thank you Sandrine! Malta has a poetic spirit just begging to be photographed.
Amit Kumar - What a fantastic post!!! The pics are beautiful! These pictures do make me want to go! Thanks for sharing.
traciehowe - Thank you, Amit! I appreciate that. I hope to go back again myself!
Jordan Adkins - Who needs inspiration to visit Malta…but if someone does then this should 100% convince them. The deep blue water, amazing diving, ancient history and stunning old town really do it for me! And I do love Gozo oh so much!
traciehowe - I have only been to Valletta and I’ve been dying to see more! I’ll surely have more photos to inspire a visit then! :)
Krista - Looks so beautiful! love these photos! Definitely need to visit here someday!
traciehowe - Thanks Krista! It’s so amazing! I hope to go back and thoroughly explore the entire island next time.
Carah - If I wasn’t already living here, I would have definitely been booking a trip right now. :) Amazing pics Tracie
traciehowe - Oh my gosh! You live there?! So jealous! And I loved it well before the Game of Thrones fame. I hope to get back some day!
Intrepid Design - We love the 4th photograph of the rough sea below Valletta’s bastions. It’s one walk we love to recommend our guests do. One way to access it through the steps in front of the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta.
traciehowe - I love that one too! That part was my favorite area to explore. I can’t wait to check out more of Malta one of these days!
flightradar.online - I’ve been to Malta a couple times but these images made me fall in love again.
