WELCOME

This blog is dedicated to Malta - my island home. My aim is not to bore you with history but to share my thoughts and a few facts together with a photo or two. For a more in -depth background of the island please go here. The purpose of this blog is not to point out the short-comings of the island. There are plenty that do that already. My wish is to show you the beauty of an island at the cross roads of the Mediterranean, a melting pot of history; a place where fact and fiction are sometimes fused to create unique myths and legends; a country that has been conquered so many times that our culture is a mish mesh of the lands that surround us and of lands far away. I confess that my greatest desire is to make you fall in love with this tiny enchanting island.

Ruby Tuesday - Little Red Door


After a long absence from Ruby Tuesday I decided to participate with this photo of a little red door belonging to an old house. It makes me wonder whether our ancestors were trying to save on wood or whether they were just vertically challenged.

  1. It's certainly a very quaint little door. The style of iron covering the windows makes it seem like it should be on a castle.
    Love the angle of the shot.
    A really nice Ruby find!

  14. Yes I think our ancestors were vertically challenged for real. Notice how many old doors are small.
