Wednesday 16th May

Today after another lovely breakfast overlooking the bay at Sliema, we decided to hop onto a local bus to go to Mosta so that we were guaranteed to find it open.  It's no problem getting on the local buses in Malta, and the staff at the bus station information desks are only to pleased to point you in the right direction.

The bus stops near the roundabout at the Mosta Dome, so it was only a short walk away from the bus stop.  We were not disappointed!!  This is an impressive building with an impressive story!!  During WWII a bomb was dropped onto the building with around 300+ people inside, but it remained unexploded and no-one was injured!!  A replica of the bomb is on display inside.

Some photos:

After our visit here we set off back to Valletta and my husband and I went to see one of the tour reps to book a cruise on a Turkish Gulet. We wanted to do the Gozo and Comino one, but that apparently wasn't operating as yet, so we opted for the round Malta cruise which also took in a three hour stop in the Blue Lagoon at Comino.  Our friends that we travelled with didn't want to do this trip, so my husband and myself treated ourselves to this with money that had been given to us for our anniversary.

We then had lunch up at the cafe in the Upper Barrakka Gardens, which was no one of our favourite places to go!! After lunch we just went back to the hotel for a little bit of relaxation and I caught up with e-mails and backed up all my photos onto the netbook that I had brought on holiday with me.

After dinner that night we went back to the hotel early as we had an early start the next morning for our cruise.
