Malta: Part Four

Day four found us collapsed around the swimming pool, refusing to move. The sun was shining and I wanted to go home with a tan to prove it! Plus, the pool water was just so deliciously inviting!

Of course, all that sunbathing is hungry work and so that evening, my sister, Mum and I headed around the corner to the Westin hotel for a spot of dinner.

We attacked the terrace tapas menu with vigour, ordering chicken satay skewers, calamari rings, parma ham with fig chutney, smoked salmon piled on herby sour bread and marinated goats cheese.  When the plates arrived, we discovered they weren't your normal teeny tiny tapas portions, but easily enough for three people to share. In fact, there was so much food that the poor waitress struggled to fit it all on one table!

Apologies for the lack of photos but we were far too busy eating to photograph! 

Despite the mountain of food, we still managed to lick our plates clean and have room for more. Therefore we retreated into the bar for cake and cocktails. Ordering was quite a fun affair as a huge platter of patisseries was brought to the table for us to peruse, before we picked our favourite looking ones. Between us we had quite a selection, but I have to say that the little lemon meringue tart I picked was definitely the best!

By the time we'd finished munching, we were well and truly stuffed but very happy. We'd had a lovely evening of food and drinks- a perfect end to a sunny day!

  2. Thank you Mahsa- my little sister found the dresses actually after being lent one by an Indian friend- from what I understand, they're the top half of a traditional Indian outfit called a salwar kameez =)


  3. Looks like such a fun trip! xo, Hayley
