Malta + Calico’s first time on the beach!


We landed in Malta last week!

The trip to Malta was a last minute addition to our summer trip to France. We were not sure what to expect and so far it has been a pleasant surprise apart from a lot of traffic and trying to remember how to drive on the left side of the road. Everyone is incredibly nice, incredible history, and the coastline is amazing. We are still exploring and getting settled after a few days in Gozo.

August 23rd was Calico’s first day at the beach! We left our hotel around 5 pm and rode the bus down to the beach from our hotel. The beach was sandy and super shallow which was great for him. We changed him into his awesome little European swim trunks, and he happily held our hands as we splashed our way into the water. He was so excited he was bouncing and laughing non-stop. We got out and he kicked and had so much fun, it was awesome to see :). At first he held onto me pretty tightly but as he got braver he wanted to move and kick and do what the other kids were doing. We stayed until he was a bit cold and then headed to play in the sand. He loved that too and he played with his new sand bucket and shovel with complete concentration for quite some time. He really liked playing with the texture on his skin, between his toes, and squeezed between his fingers. Fun evening :)

He also had fun on our short ferry ride to a smaller island for a few days!

P.S. Malta is my 46th country to visit :)!!!

And, here are a few pics of our apartment in Malta, nice two bedroom place that we are loving.

This is bwb’s personal blog so he can share his thoughts with the world, however scary or silly they might be. Plus family and friends can track what I am up too, and where I am in the world.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean, although mostly at sunset as I’m a ginger. I love to travel, eat exotic food, read, and use my imagination. I love creating and developing ideas into businesses, understanding how all businesses work, and building cool stuff. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground. And, I am married to an amazing woman who makes life even more fun :)! And, we are now the proud parents of Calico Jack :).
