Visit Noah’s Ark Dog Sanctuary in Malta

Noahs Ark Dog Sanctuary in Malta - volunteer to walk dogs

One of the most important parts of becoming an expat is getting involved in your new local community. It’s why I talked about the coastal cleanup and World Oceans Day earlier this year. It’s also why I volunteered with the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home back in Scotland. And it’s what brought us to Noah’s Ark Dog Sanctuary in Malta.

We’ve only been living in Malta for a few months, but already we’ve had a few visitors!

Daily Life as an Expat in Malta: Walking Around Qawra

Daily Life as an Expat in Malta - Walking Around Qawra

The area of Malta that we live in is called St. Paul’s Bay. It’s in the northern part of the island of Malta and is a more recently developed area, being primarily built up in the 1960s and later.

Part of this area is called Bugibba, which is the area we live in specifically. Alongside Bugibba is an area called Qawra, which is one of my favorite areas nearby for a run or a Sunday walk.

Come take a stroll with us and see why we love walking around Qawra!

Enjoy History at the In Guardia Parade in Valletta

All about the In Guardia Parade in Valletta Malta

If you haven’t yet noticed, I’m a bit of a history nerd. It’s inherited – my dad’s favorite line to say is: “Did you know…” followed by a fact or story of interest. I’ve taken on that tendency, but you can’t keep saying, “Did you know?” without following it up with interesting facts! And so, off we went to check out living history at the In Guardia Parade in Valletta so I could add to my random fact arsenal.
