Mould problems and other greetings

I can’t believe that it is already mid-April! It feels like yesterday when I was laughing at April Fool’s jokes, and month has been flying away. I haven’t done really anything except working. I don’t know if I suffer from some spring fatigue or something, but I have energy for work but nothing beyond that. Sometimes I have been thinking if my tiredness is due to the mould…

The island of Gozo: why haven’t I visited it earlier?

April 1, 2018

Every now and then I get this longing for peaceful nature, a wish to get away from Malta, to be somewhere far away from all the noise and dust. “Go to Gozo” How many times have I heard this by locals and permanent residents! And still it took me eight full months to finally visit this neighbour island that is located only 6 kilometres from Malta. There was…

Shitty blogger says hi

Yep, every once in a while all of us are a bit shitty. For the past couple of weeks, I haven’t had any energy, nor time, for my beloved hobby because everything else has just come before – my job, gym, being social, Netflix, cleaning and all the other tiny errands. Sometimes I wonder (and feel jealous) how some bloggers are able to publish a new post once…

Money is an interesting topic, especially if you are a person with a history of business studies. At least, I love reading about living expenses in different countries and make comparisons between places. I even wrote a similar post about Australia previously, and ended up spending almost 1100 euros in one month in Melbourne. But how is it here in Malta? More or less expensive, what do you guess?…

Hi there! Am I the only one or are you also noticing that Malta seems to be more and more popular travel destination? Could one reason behind this increased popularity be that Valletta is the European cultural capital of 2018? This year, this tiny yet beautiful town is filled with different cultural happenings and events. So if Malta is on your bucket list, 2018 might be the year to…

Can you find anything green in Malta?

Malta is one big barren rock. It is not only once or twice I have said those words. And yes, basically it is true. Here you can see rocky shores, stone houses, stone walls and cliffs everywhere you lay your eyes on. I am from Finland, and my soul is used to seeing green forests, grass, moss, trees and bushes. Sometimes, I really miss just the plain greenness, instead…

   Malta is a tiny, almost unknown island in the middle of the Mediterranean. Surprising  though, igaming companies, online casinos, payment providing companies and many others have found their way to Malta. And with the companies, there comes the employees. A large portion of the workers are young Europeans who have come to Malta in a search of a better life, more relaxed lifestyle and good job opportunities. Could…

When you move to another country, you keep some of the daily habits you had back home, but then you also develop new routines. The basic building blocks of your life are usually pretty similar no matter, where you live. I for example go to work, to the gym and spend a good time of my day with my laptop and with different social media sites. However, there…

The capital of Malta, Valletta, calls itself as “a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen“. Among massive fortresses, stunning churches and amazing administrative offices, one can also find hidden places out from the public eye. There you have a chance to take a peak at the private life of these gentlemen and their families. What does the life look like, when you take a step from the public…
