Dreading yet another cold, wet winter? Tired of shacking up for months on end like a bear in hibernation? With winter approaching, the thought of braving those harsh conditions has many yearning for some extra months of sunshine. Unfortunately, winter is coming, and it’s time to plan accordingly.
Me? I will be spending my winter sitting at a café watching the waves roll in. Did I mention it will be 70 degrees F (25 degrees C) and sunny? That’s right people I spend my winters in shorts and a T-Shirt.
Malta is a nation situated in the Mediterranean Sea, in between North Africa and Europe. The densely nation is around 90-95 km to the south of Sicily. It is composed of seven islands, of which only three are inhabited. Malta is one of the smallest most densely populated countries with an estimated area of 316 km2.

This Wednesday night was the night of the official opening of the new Hugo’s terrace. However the place was “unofficially” open since last Friday, so I had enough time to spend few days and hours at the bar, to be impressed enough and to fell in love with the atmosphere to write this review about it.
I have decided to continue with spreading love; after all we are just recovering from last week Valentine’s. Hopefully all the couples in love continue loving each other the same way as they did it on the 14th. What I will write about today is the loveliest, sweetest and nicest spot in Malta, definitely my No.1 favorite: the LOVE sign.
Unfortunately I don’t have many facts to say about it. The LOVE sign is a statue on Spinola Bay, in the middle of Saint Julians, which was built by the local artist, architect: Richard England.
What once started out as a summer resort for Valletta’s wealthier residents has now arguable become one of the (if not the) cultural centres of Malta! Sliema meaning ‘Peace’ or ‘Comfort’ in Maltese has now developed into a multicultural town with arts and cultural activities to be proud of!
With constant development and beautification of public places and spaces Sliema remains one of the most sought after places to live on the island and will probably remain so for the foreseeable future.
