    For sure it is, but have anti-mosquito spray on stand-by though! I think that they have some kind of special stealth mode on the islands, because I never heard them coming.

    Swell piccies, mate. :cool:
    I'll bet it's a great place to vacation. I've never been there. It looks somewhat barren though.

    There's a full crate of beer near the coast of Malta somewhere - I ask my dad to find out exactly where. Next person to go - be sure to take diving gear to recover it. Keep in mind it'll have been there since 1974 (if it hasn't been recovered already).

    Great pictures, Med. The beer one was the best - for all the obvious reasons.

    Hey, I'm not going to drink it. I want them to drink it for the exact reason that it doesn't age like wine. :lol:

    A bit of news....

    I've managed to swing an internship at the National Army Museum in London!

    http://www.national-army-museum.ac.uk/

    Bit of a surprise, since I applied for it with a 'Wadda I haf ta lose' view - guess they liked me!

    Needless to say, I am like, well chuffed! I confirm all the details for it in the middle of next week. 8) 8) 8) :D

    Well now. That looks pretty sweet indeed.:thumbleft:
    But what exactly does this internship involve? I'm just curious. It's interesting enough, no doubt.

    Not very glamourous I'm afraid - It's basically being an unpaid dogsbody in the museum.

    However, it's a start, and I badly need to get started on this sort of stuff.

    Nice pics Med! Malta is cool. Gozo is great too. I have been to the Azure Window, it is really nice - especially for cliff diving ;) Don't remember the mosquitoes being so bad there though!

    I think it would be pretty fun of a job, to work at a historical military museum.

    That should be fun, Med! Being a museum volunteer myself, I can tell you that a lot of the time it's pretty unglamorous (trash detail, sweeping floors, dusting cases, etc). But when you see the eyes of the children light up and see the folks take interest in what you are preserving, it's worth it. During the air show, I got a cut on my head and my hand crunched in a tow bar, both are funny but uninteresting stories. I wouldn't take anything back though.
