Malta is a hostile place. Not the people, who are pretty friendly and speak english - making my life all that bit easier when I'm there but the landscape - Its dry, Its hot, Its exposed.. Its sharp and rocky. The Islands of Comino and Gozo are infinitely better than Malta itself - Peppered with castles and cathedrals and with a rough coastline shredded by the sea winds its a great place to travel to if your interested in the shape of the earth. I was only on the Islands for a few days but managed to see most of the harsh landscape.
