Malta has many iconic churches - from small chapels to large, iconic domes. But have you ever noticed something strange with the clocks on their façades? The left reads a different time when compared to the right!
The reason for this is found in Maltese tradition and folklore: the right clock always marks the correct time, whilst the left clock reads the incorrect time, as it was said that this would confuse the devil and thwart his evil plans.
We are somewhat nervously undertaking our first trip post-lockdown, a 90-minute flight and 4 nights in Malta. Masks are mandatory (gloves were our idea) and middle seats are empty on #alitalia . FCO airport felt safe and secure, except for fellow travelers not observing their 1-meter distance. I've already told a few people to quite literally back off, and Paolo has come to the crushing realization that I'm going to be *that woman* for the entire trip.
"The difference between an ordinary life and an extraordinary life is only a matter of perspective. Pull the blinds. Look around you. It is a weird wonderful world and you do not require a ten digit bank account to immerse yourself in it. Travel down dusty roads without a destination in mind. Climb a mountain and scream into the void. Kiss a stranger. Skinny dip in a lake. Get lost and lose yourself (these are two seperate things). Think less of destiny and more of the moment right here."
