Discovering Malta

Hello! Are you thinking of starting a new life in Malta? If that is the case or you are a traveler who wants to come on holidays to “the rock”, alias with which Malta is known around here, keep reading:

Let me introduce myself: My name is Ana, I’m 26 years old and I’m from a village in Jaén. On 9th July 2017 I moved to Mosta (Malta), after having spent four years in Madrid studying at the university and almost three years in Granada doing a master’s degree and then working. This is already the fourth city to which I move in my quarter of the century.

Maybe you are like me a few months ago, thinking about what your next destination will be. I wanted to live abroad and improve my English, so I thought: “Malta, a Mediterranean country with good weather, a lot of work, paradisiacal beaches and where English is also spoken. It will be like I am on vacation!” Later I will tell you which of my expectations were met and which were not, but I will start by clarifying some basic doubts about Malta.
