Malta

Here I am, to fulfill one of my weekend tasks...i dont know if the following two weeks will be the same, or i may squeeze in during the week as well....but for now, i cant promise anything...


And ill start today with  a really nice view card from Malta, since its been a longish time since i had posted a card from there. In case you wonder what you are looking at, this is what the back of the card says:

Two of the look out towers built by Grandmaster Martin De Redin overlooking the beaches of Gnejna and Ghajn Tuffieha.
The Ghajn Tuffieha beach some hundreds of meters east of Golden Bay. It is much more quiet and is especially visited by the Maltese themselves. In order to reach this beach one needs to descend a hill using 200 natural stairs. On top of the cliffs west of Għajn Tuffieħa Bay there is an old defense tower built in 1637.
Some hundreds of meters to the east we find Gnejna Bay. This beach can only be reached by first going through Għajn Tuffieħa Bay, then climbing up a hill and finally making a descend along some rather steep paths between the rocks. The beach of Gnejna Bay is used as a nude beach.


the stamp is a really nice one but unfortunately, it hasnt been cancelled. It was issued in 2008 in a set of 3 stamps regarding Christmas holidays.
