But there is a certain charm in living in castles . This must have been quite an adventure.

Dear Brent:

This is a really interesting article. Supposedly, Malta has the best weather in the world, even if there is a shortage of toilets and leftover articles from a sex club. Your pictures show a very nice place. I just wanted to let you know I just finished reading "The Elephant of Surprise". It was my favorite book out of the Russel Middlebrook series. But wait! There's more to Russel's story. As I finished reading the book, I noticed a 3-book set about Russel and his compadres all grown up in "Russel Middlebrook: The Futon Years", so, of course I sent away for it. Since I bought "The Futon Years", I was entitled to a free book, so I bought "The Last Texaco". Soon, I'll have to get a separate shelf in my library for all the books written by Brent Hartinger. I guess you could say I'm an aficionado. Take care.

Brilliant! I've been hoping you'd share some of your Malta experiences and this was hilarious. What a shame the place closed down, clearly the lack of toilets contributed to that decision!

Malta is amazing! When I visited the locals told me the culture and language were 1/3 Arabic, 1/3 Italian, and 1/3 English. Fascinating history, beautiful architecture, and gorgeous ocean views.

As for the orgy dungeon...definitely needed more bathrooms.

Old stuff is so interesting but can be very inconvenient! Lol

Oh, the feelings we have about discovery. So fun!

And I have to ask ... if someone loves nature surrounding small villages, because of the visual beauty/peace that those spaces provide, will Malta seem visually overwhelming or too harsh?

I keep wondering if I will be able to handle it.
