Biography/Interests/Remarks My time in Malta was very special for me and I had always resisted going back as I explain in my 'memoir'. However, on the occasion of our 40th. wedding anniversary in 2015 I did return. Although the northern half of Malta has become totally urbanised, there is enough left of the old Malta on the southern half to evoke fond memories.
It was that visit that prompted me to search for nostalgia sites such as this one and also the writing of my 'memoir'. I visited again in 2018 with my 35 year old son tagging along and he fell in love with the island as my wife had done.
