It has been quite a year for us, with much travelling back and forth between locations in Europe, including a wonderful trip to Sweden in the northern hemisphere mid-summer We also managed another side trip to Sicily to meet up with Marie Louise and Richard (our son’s in-laws) for a somewhat boozy week to then rush back to Malta in time to greet Marie & Steve who came all the way from Perth and also stopped over to visit us!
It has also been great catching up with all the cruisers who have stopped over in Malta on their summer cruising this year. We did hope that keeping busy would stop us from missing our beloved MISCHIEF too much, but in the last month or two we have been wondering not if but when and where to get our next boat again!! - By the way, to those cruisers crossing the Atlantic this year, Mischief is also crossing, but with her new owners who are a really lovely Spanish couple.
Bjorn and I have kept busy in Malta these last three months doing some courses to keep our brains occupied. Bjorn has done an AutoCAD course whilst I have done a TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) refresher course and may consider some part time teaching whilst in Malta.
Meanwhile it has been great visiting with our families here in Malta and Sweden.
