A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to stay in a traditional maltese house in Silema, a walking distance from the sea. Balconies often constitute the main component of facades. Made of wood, they are a bright touch of color on the honey-coloured old stone houses.
Silema bay offers a nice view over Valetta, the capital city of Malta, reachable by boat in 15 minutes.
A 40 minutes bus ride later, welcome to Mdina, a medieval walled town situated on a hill in the centre of the island.
And, although it’s packed with tourists, a boat tour to Comino offers you a stunning view over the blue lagoon’s crystal waters.
As I spent only one day in Rome, I mainly focused on its architecture and walked around looking up for details. I like how different times and styles cohabit in a palette of egg shell and salmon nuances.
Not only Tel-Aviv has a great deal of Bauhaus buildings (which is why it is called the white city and is part of UNESCO’s world heritage sites ), but its architecture strikes visitors by the mix of old and new. Ramshackle constructions sometimes stand in the middle of modern skycrapers and, as you walk on the beach, hotels vie with architectural originality.
