Brilliant I am thinking of doing more of a "food porn" report when I get back from three weeks at WDW in August. Our first visit so am really going to try, even bought a camera.

Good plan, it's a good way to start writing TR's. At least you'll get plenty of use out of your new camera, I got a new one for this trip and I'm so glad I did.

Our first port was Malta, it was so cool to be welcomed like this



This port was a lot prettier than Barcelona



We did the Valetta Hisorical Hunt excursion, this is after our coach dropped us off and we were led to the start of the Hunt



This traditionally dressed Maltese man told us what the Hunt involved



We were given a guide book that included the questions



And a map of Valletta



Most of the streets were like this, it reminded me of some parts of London



A usual sight of the UK high street





There seemed to be a church on every corner





Knock off Disney plush toys



You can't have Goofy next to Yogi Bear



The cathedral



With and upsdie down hidden Mickey



They had an old HMV sign (His Masters Voice)



A statue of Queen Victoria

Front





And back!



I loved how all the balconys were different



Gav was checking out the local goodies

Lots of beautiful flowers





This brick work reminded me of chocolate





I'm not sure what this was but it was in the ground and covered with a see through piece of plastic





They have a Marks and Sparks too





It was getting quite hot and I wanted to run through these fountains





This church was on a really narrow street and yet it was so ornate



There were lots of horses and carts, they had them near the port too



This is looking across the channel of the port, the city is fortified all the way around



My camera has an auto panoramic mode - I found it hard to get enough in the picture, a lot of them ended up with black bits on the right!



This one was better



And another I was practicing



This bell was presented to Malta to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the award of the George Cross to the Maltese people









We could see the Magic

This was where a cannon used to be during WW2



We really weren't too far from the port, it's such an easy place to explore by foot



This was a garden across the street, we didn't explore it



A silly shadow picture



We walked back to the ship - Valletta is high up on a hill, it was ok walking back but I don't think I would have enjoyed climbing it











When I was younger we used to have a Citroen similar to this one



Sorry about the glare, this was a shop at the port - I was getting hungry so we didn't look around



Back home



It didn't take too long to get back onboard



We had lunch at Lumiere's - butternut squash soup



Quesedilla



Seafood



Cheesecake



Apple pie



Ice cream
