Holidays beckon at last.
Malta is the maytrees' destination this
summer. Intriguing island junction between Europe, Middle East and Africa,
with huge history of Catholic and Islamic influences; not to
mention the British being invited in on fears of Napoleon
and the populations' amazing courage during WWII resulting in the whole
Island being awarded the George Cross for bravery.
All this for a country hardly any larger than the
Isle of Wight off Portsmouth.
