David, Sliema

Spinola Bay, Malta
My name is David, and I am a sun-seeker escaping from the present gloomy climate (in more ways than one) in Ireland. I moved to Malta in 2011, for the reasons outlined above.

Relocating to another country is always going to present a certain amount of challenges. The fact that we did so within 2 weeks of making the decision to move did not make things any easier, but had the advantage of focusing the mind on the task at hand. I am still not 100% certain that my electricity account in Ireland has been closed but I prefer not to think about that too much.

We had booked a cheap hotel for the first week of our arrival, so that was how long we had to find a suitable apartment to rent. A lot of visits to estate agents ensued, and we were driven around the labyrinthine backstreets of Sliema and Gzira and St Julian’s looking at various options. Eventually, with the clock ticking down to midnight, we made our choice. In retrospect, we probably ended up paying more than was sensible but hopefully will not repeat that mistake in future.   more ...

Blue Lagoon in Comino, Malta
I go by the name of Harri on my blog, and I'm a 24 years old British female now living in Malta!

I moved to Malta in June 2010. My boyfriend and I had just met and were looking for a fresh start. We were sick of the dreary concrete jungle we called home and unsatisfied in our jobs. We wanted a new life, sun, sea...and jobs! As we worked in iGaming already Malta seemed the perfect choice.


What challenges did you face during the move?

What to bring- shipping stuff over is pretty expensive so we literally came with a suitcase each. Whittling down a lifetime of possessions into one suitcase is no easy task!   more ...
