It was September 2019, I was flying to Nicaragua, the largest country in Central America but it is less known to tourists. However, it has awakened to the strategic importance of tourism and aims to show its hidden beauties to the world.
We began our explorations in the north of Managua and arrived in Selva Negra Ecolodge, 12 kilometers from the town of Matagalpa. We only stayed one night at Hotel Selva Negra. My wooden cottage with a deck was set in a nature reserve environment within a forest, surrounded by a farm and coffee plantation. There were two lakes, one of them in front of the restaurant and the reception area.
Malta, one of the smallest countries in the world, is a real paradise, as implied in its name derived from the original Phoenician word, “Maleth,” which means “a heaven”. The Greeks also used to call it “Melite” which means “honey-sweet” due to the production of a unique type of honey on the Island.
Malta’s mild climate and peacefulness has made it a small secluded spot in the Mediterranean sea, an island concealed by layers and layers of history spanning from antiquity to modern times. Its riches have made it a target of interest for all who have come to know of it. It has been included in much of European history from original Phoenician settlers, the influence of Greek and Roman rulers, the legacy of the Arab and Muslim era, the adventures of the Normans and the Knights of St John, the short Napoleonic period to the period of British rule which included its heroic role in WWII.
