In November 2017 we went to Malta together with three friends.

The Maltese islands are located between Sicily and North Africa, about 300 km east of Tunesia.
The total area constitutes 316 sqm, somewhat lesser than the Isle of Wight. The isles consist of
five islands of which only three are inhabited. We lived on the main island, Malta, in the town Qawra.

Malta is a former British Crown Colony but became 1964 an independant
constitunional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as Head of the State.
Malta became a republic 1974 and in 2004 Malta became member of the
European Union. In 2008 the Euro was introduced as the official currency.

The population of Malta constitutes around 416.000.
