Malta (part 6)

Today was our last full day here in Malta, tomorrow we will be heading home, I can't believe the time has flown past so fast...

Any way being the last day we all decided that we would do our own thing; in the event Ian and the boys pretty much just popped to Valetta and then spent the rest of the day hanging round St Julians and the hotel, whilst I headed to the south coast, details of my day below... Ian bought a whole lot of nougat (local speciality), Chris bought a big flag of a Maltese Cross!

Ian and I had tea at the Blue Elephant Thai restaurant again, just as nice as last time... and this time they gave me an orchid at the end of the meal!
