The Maltese language
While in Malta or Gozo, why not try to pick up some of their words? Well, good luck. The Maltese language is pretty awkward. It is a Semitic language (somehow related to Arab and Hebrew), they have some strange letters (H's and G's with lines and dots added) and a peculiar pronounciation. But reading signs and watching local TV is fun. Try to say 'qaghaq'......
Visit the museum of history ...
Visit the museum of history of the island 'Heritage of Malta'. Moving from one hall to another you'll be involved in a sort of performance. The manner of presentation of historic events is really unusual.
An island of an ideal size
Gozo is a perfect place to spend only one day or an entire holiday. A third of the size of Malta, Gozo is 14 km / 9 miles long and 6 km / 4 miles wide. There´s so much to discover and everything is still near to reach by foot, bike or car.
Ggantija Megalithic temples
Just like in Malta, I was mostly impressed by those Megalithic temples.
Weird pre-historic buildings (3600-3000 b.C.), survive to prove their remote function, hinting to the religious preoccupation that the early Maltese inhabitants were concerned with.
The Cliffs of Gozo
Gozo Island is simply beautiful. Its magical cliffs are a sight to behold. When you fly in the helicopter from Luqa airport on Malta you travel down the sides of these fabulous islands. It is an experience not to be missed. It takes only about 15 minutes The cliffs of Xlendi (Gozo)
