So my mini Malta tour has come to an end...but what great fun we had!
This has to have been some of the most enjoyable training I have undertaken in a very long time (and that is saying something considering the amount of training I undertake in any given year), mainly in part to the generosity and warmth of the Maltese delegates, and the impeccable organisation from the MIPP.
So where do I start?
How about...meeting up with Juliet at some ungodly hour at Manchester Airport (read 4am!) After hazy 'good mornings' we jet off to the sunny island of Malta, getting there a full 40 minutes ahead of schedule due to a 140mph tail wind...fantastic.
So just after 9am we were met by Martin Agius, a local press photographer and all-round fantastic guy who drives us over to our hotel to drop off our bags.
So what next?
Food and beer of course! Sitting outside in the sun having a natter about nothing in particular, enjoying the Maltese sun...burning my head and nose to a crisp!
Back to the hotel to change before we are back out again down to the pub! Hard work this networking you know! Here we meet back up with Martin and also with the president of the MIPP, Kevin Casha (a very funny guy with a twinkle in his eye that says he is always looking for mischief...a man after my own heart). A few beers later and we have all put the photography world to rights; a really relaxing enjoyable evening where I am instantly made to feel extremely welcome.
So Friday morning dawns and again Martin comes to pick up Juliet and me for a day site-seeing around the south of Malta.
