Trip notes from holidays in Malta .
There was a time in my life when i had to change things And this is where i opened my eyes widely and saw the world for the first time different ... I think just few people see it like i do .. I can not explain it .. As much i tried people don’t usually get me ... Or maybe they are not interested ... I think more you see and experience – more you want to see and experience .. And that’s what i am doing now !! Getting to know world. And try to change it , just accept as it is and love it and learn about it !!There is so much to see.. There is no person who seen or know everything.. There is always something left ...
There i was in 4 o clock am , just walking in to my room .. my housemate had just opened Bacardi bottle and asked me to join him . And i
did .. At the time i was working as waitress in night shifts. We sat down in living room on sofas and start to chat .. I even do not remember what he was saying .. My head was full of thoughts and alcohol.. I know that subject was travels .. And more we drank more crazy stories we shared .. morning was going well and we were at stage to plan next trip .. I shared , he shared and that felt like that i need more .. I missed adventure feeling .. feeling that your heart is beating so fast.. so fast that you do not know what to do ...And idea was born...
In the way i felt like challenge was given to me ...And i could not let it slide of course ...Not sure was it me or alcohol ,but I got my laptop and started to look at flights information and prices .. Idea was good and i had some spare money from tips , that i felt like spending ...But there was problem .. Question – Where? Had no idea where to go .. There is so many places in world .. From my “ Spare money” i figured that need to stay in Europe radar .. By the time i was thinking , my house-mate had already fall asleep .. All by myself in living room in silent .. Big no..no ...no ..! I switched YouTube to make some noise ...And there it was – my answer .. Someone had put video of crazy bus driver in Malta.. In video all tourist were screaming and camera was shaking, but i loved idea !! What can be better than this – people speak in English , Euro is there ... Sun , adventures and of course not to forget crazy bus driver !!!Maybe Malta is big break and full of opportunities ... Never know if don’t try.
Within next 5 minutes i had tickets to Malta .Flight was within 24 hours from now .. Next step to pack my bags and ... Malta here i come !!!!
Time was around 8 am and i decided that i need to get some sleep ...
Bright sunshine shined in my eyes .. I felt that my body is in pain .. Not happy at all .. I heard some noise downstairs .. I think that was housemate .. Sounds from kitchen was pretty scary .. something was falling and smelled like burning too ..Housemate was chef- Maybe that was not him .. I will never know .. I just closed my eyes and... I remembered my tickets .. First thought in my head was ... Oh my god.. im going to Malta .. Second thought what so bright ever was not that I had to call my boss and get week off .. I got up smelling like big cigarette and with my body dried out .. This reminds me of sun dried tomatoes .. perfect match .. And yet again i had to do deal with consequences.. I refreshed my laptop and it was still there.. Crazy driver drive nowhere ... I had left around 10 hours until plane .. I gave call to my boss and he had no problem to give me time off .. I quickly went to shower and started to pack .. 8 days in Malta .. What do i need with me ...? Sunglasses , bikini , shorts , small size cream , toothpaste , toothbrush ... camera , money, phone , towel , small notebook ... i think took all .. One tiny bag with 7 kg .. Pretty good deal !I cleaned my room and prepared to go . was left around and hour till flight ..
I heard some noise on stairway .. Housemate was back .. I opened doors and smiled .. He knew that something was up .. my room was all very clean and naughty smile on my face .. I informed him about going and he just had no words what to say .. Only a bit sadness .. 8 days silent in house .. He wished me luck and sent me off airport .. my friend drove me there , but he had no idea where i am going .. Basically only housemate knew where im going .. and friend knew that i am going somewhere , but not exact.. Other `s .. did not even know that i am out of country ! I stepped inside airport and truly felt like in a dream .. Maybe i was still a bit drunk or just too excited, but this was not reality..This was my first holidays all by myself , i have been one or two days travelling around , but still at the end of the day i met my friend at hotel ..
I knew this will be different. That was time to go out of local radar and go in to unknown .. I stepped in to security ! Lady at security indicated what i need to do .. shoes, belt, watch , bag... everything in basket .. Was standing only with jeans , socks and t shirt and stepping trough .. My bag was all sorted.. Security had no problem with it .. I went to gates and waited to get in plane .. I was still relaxed no stress feeling or anything. Around 20 minutes later i was in my seat .. .. Plane was all crowded .. people pushed each other and talked too loud i just wanted to sleep .. i put some music in my ears and i felt safe and good .. flight was around 2.40 minutes ... Landing was peaceful and good ... i felt sleepy until i looked outside the plane window .. Everyone in plane seemed exited and could not wait to get out ... Everyone but me .. Now i felt sick ... I was there all by myself .. Had no idea where to or what to do .. nothing .. I had booked hostel for 4 days , but had no idea where exactly is it .. i went out of security and finished airport stuff in few minutes .. i had no baggage ... The airport was small .. and kind of empty .. I liked it .. I took my cigarettes package and went outside of airport .. i sat down in bus stop to light the cigarette .. And there is was .. Like a light bowl on my head.. Understanding jumped in my head ... Jus simple question – What the hell i am doing here !!! Am i lost my mind or what ??? These questions start to pop out in my head more and more until loud noise next to my head ... “ Excuse me , Do you speak English ?...?” i was silent until i realize that voice tried to get my attention ..
