- The never-ending debate 10 months ago Talking to expat friends lately, watching the Olympics earlier this winter and the World Cup now, passing the sixth anniversary of my first trip to Malta: it's all led to many (often wine-fueled) conversations about what we all love about here or there. What each place excels at and just gets...
- Feeling patriotic, more or less. 10 months ago I have always felt a bit...uncomfortable about patriotism. The way it sparks conflict and division makes me uneasy. But living 'overseas' I surprise myself with the fondness I feel growing a bit bigger, year after year, for my home and native land (that's a line from our anthem). I wrote a whole...

I have great admiration for both Mike & Jess who have taught so many of us about a little island called Malta. Their honest and informative posts keep me coming back and have me yearning to see Malta for myself.

I like Malta, I have been there, but for me Mike and Jess have a very interesting blog. I've never heard about some things which I read in their blog.

I have family in Malta, but live in the US. I am coming to study in the spring at the University of Malta, and Mike and Jess in Malta has been such a help in what to expect! I LOVE this blog!!!

Love the blog as it is the perfect example of an expat blog: informative and interesting

I love the blog because I've lived in Malta all my life, so I take many lovely things for granted, while Mike + Jess don't miss the little things that make the country great. My mother is also an expat living in Malta so it's quite fun to imagine her discovering and experiencing the same things, only 25 years ago!

Informative, easy to follow, and inciting. If not for this blog, I would have never known to visit and love Malta- it really is a hidden gem in the Mediterranean. Great work Mike and Jess! :)

Many happy memories of childhood vacations spent in Malta. Was lucky enough to go 14 times back in the 60's and 70's, thanks mainly to a Dad who worked for British Airways (really cheap standby tickets!) Love reading about the Malta of today. Thanks Mike and Jess! I wonder If The Farewell Bar in St. Paul's Bay is still there? If you find it, have a wine and kinnie for me!

Most people now a days consider themselves bloggers but, none write as beautifully or photograph the sites as wonderfully as Mike & Jess. This blog is truly all encompassing, from travel tips to genuinely hilarious stories. I have not yet been to Malta but when I make enough money to travel, it will be first on my destination list. Keep up the great work you guys!

Mike and Jess' blog has been one of the most helpful and insightful ways to get to know my new home of Malta. Their tips and tricks for people living in/traveling to/interested in Malta are varied and interesting. Plus, their posts about traveling around Europe add to their site. Expat blogging at its best!
