Our next stop on our tour was Malta which just so happened to be the most pleasant surprise of our trip! Not knowing what to expect was likely the greatest thing about it because we had nothing to lose and everything to gain! I fell in love with the neutral colors by the seaside and how the city lit up at night! It was dreamy! Our next day was spent in Athens, Greece which is clearly so rich in history and equally as breathtaking in it’s beauty. The city of Athens though struck with poverty still had so much to offer. I loved seeing the children playing music in the streets and all the vendors in the towns selling goods. The views from the Acropolis were unlike any I had ever seen before and it was so neat to be able to witness the changing of the guards. Two unexpected surprises for me, for sure!
