The following day was spent negotiating the capital Victoria (Rabbat). Not a very big town by UK standards but the streets are a maze. It was soon clear that the sat nav had not really got a grasp of the one way system and that getting my bearings would take a little while.
The house is classed as 'furnished' but not with anything I would want or need, it would be nice to get all my belongings over here.
So, a week on and I am getting to know my immediate surroundings a little better. The best walks, where the best food shops are, the best bars, when the buses run etc etc. I found a bike shop tucked down an ally way and will go back on Monday to buy a bike, bigger saddle ;0) and shopping basket inc the price. Then free wheel all the way back to Xlendi down the very steep hills. Whether I manage to cycle out of the bay again is debatable.
I haven't yet had much time to consider painting but there is a great space up on the roof terrace for a studio. Sorting that out in the next couple of weeks will be a priority. It's all whitewashed but needs a table and chair, shelving etc.
Happy snaps as I wandered around Victoria's pretty streets.
So far so good.
