We have fallen into the campsite lifestyle here at Camping Malta. In the caravan behind us our English neighbours are great fun and we chat each morning and evening about whose-who in the campsite and things to do around Malta. In front of us a young German guy in a converted van, has good english and we have the odd chat mostly about how sun-burnt he is.
Whilst you can easily walk along the road to the next beach, walking anywhere else is difficult. The local limestone near the coast is weathered into an irregular moonscape of jagged rock and hollows.
Our neighbours tell us the nearby town of Mellieha is well worth a visit so we decide to start our Malta exploration there.
So we have done the old town, we scooter back to the Hymer for a swim. Our neighbours John and Linda ask do we want to go with them back into Melleiha for dinner tonight ? Their Lexus handles the road from hell much better than our scooter.
