Lynne Derry  

Christmas in Malta

An excellent way to experience travelling ""alone"" for the very first time, having travelled extensively with my late husband over the previous 27 years. I would not have seen half as much of the island had I not been in a group, or learnt so much about its history. An added bonus was meeting so many people and making new friends.
