Malta Food Festivals: My Top 4

Malta is a tiny country, but it certainly makes a bold statement with its vibrant festivals. Most of Malta’s special celebrations revolve around saints’ days, fireworks and holidays like Carnival. However, it might be the food-themed festivals that best capture this island nation’s Mediterranean charm. Here are four gastronomic festivals guaranteed to whet your appetite:

In Pictures: My Favourite Places in all of Malta

From countryside farmhouses to ancient walled cities and breath-taking coastal pathways to delicious, hidden-gem restaurants, the tiny island nation of Malta has a little of something for everyone. In fact, it’s home to nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites (and another pending), over 250 kilometres of coastline, and, thanks to its far southern location, one of the warmest climates in Europe...

Western Europe’s Most Affordable Retirement Havens

Rich in history, culture and romance, Europe has long had a strong appeal for Australian retirees. But many people who would love to retire to the Old World fret that it’s beyond their budget.

They entertain themselves by attending the many festi (feasts) hosted on the islands, exploring the natural beauty of their home or going out for a meal in one of the many diverse restaurants available to them.
