    Everything I dislike about Greece and Italy in one easily avoided island. I sailed there a few times en route elsewhere

    Far better, head to a Greek island. Crete is far enough south. I was on Aegina a few weeks ago, people were swimming in the sea. Athens is an hour away too.

    Apparently Malta is like Marmite.
    Just fancy something different with lots of old architecture.

    Done the Greek islands many times.

    Good luck with it. Looking forward to the trip report. I was there to help crew a friend's boat to Sardinia in September. Jeez it was warm. The best thing about it was sailing out of Grand Harbour away from the place..... Hopefully more pleasant temperatures this time of year.

    It is true, as I have heard, Malta would indeed be Paradise if every priest were a tree.

    ^ Might not be the best time to go CCC. Think there is a thread elsewhere that they just banged up half the islands police force for corruption.

    ^^ looks fantastic. I've always fancied a trip to Malta, so I'm looking forward to your picture thread.





    They do some wonderful mailorderbrides, and apparently they accept part exchange - is that why you're really going, Chitty?
