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.

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.

Advice for a day trip to Gozo from Malta

Did you know that Malta is an independent nation consisting of three main islands in the Mediterranean? We live on the island of Malta, which is the largest. The island of Gozo is second-largest and less densely populated. The island of Comino is non-residential. Both Gozo and Comino are easily accessible from Malta and, actually, my Irish-Colombian frequently dives at both islands! A day trip to the island of Gozo is a great addition to a holiday in Malta.

The Annual Mdina Medieval Festival in Malta

My favorite part of moving to a new expat home is exploring and learning about my new host country. One of the first things I do is check out upcoming calendars for festivals, annual events, and anything else noteworthy so I can try to catch them all. The first one that popped up for our new home in Malta was the Mdina Medieval Festival. While I may not be the type to don centuries-old garb and act a part, I can certainly appreciate the revelry and importance of these traditions!

As the exploration of my new expat home continues, I opted for a free walking tour of Valletta with Colour My Travel. Colour My Travel offers a wide variety of tours in the area, including ghost tours and full-day private tours of the island.
