Margo’s Mini-Travels: Off the Beaten Track in Malta
As this is posted, I will be squashed into a backpack under a seat on a plane somewhere over Italy or Sicily. Hannah is on her way to Malta for a few weeks, which means I get to have a mini-break too. Malta is a place I’m already familiar with and for my first Mini-Travels post, I think I’ll start with a lesser known part of the island: Dwejra Lines.
Dwejra (pronounced d-way-ra) Lines is a section of the Victoria Lines: a line of fortifications spanning the width of Malta. Getting there isn’t the easiest but there are a few hiking ideas listed online:
Alternatively, you can do it the easy way:
As a mouse, I feel it is only fair I should be exempt from any length of travel by foot
The view from Dwejra Lines is incredible – you can see all the way out to sea. One of the great things about being there though is the absolute peace and quiet, something you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in Malta.
I put a lot of effort into taking the above photo and was utterly pooped at the end of it (try lifting a camera the size of your torso before you judge) so the lovely Sarah Wayte has a few more photos for me to share:
Until next time,
