It all started when I got fed up with this island!
My name is Martina, alias Tina. I’m originally from the Czech Republic, but have been living in Malta for over 14 years. As you can imagine, every relationship tends to become a bit boring after a very long time. My love story with this island started experiencing some serious issues. I thought I had seen and done it all, and that there was nothing exciting going on anymore and no new discoveries to be made.
I therefore kept looking for opportunities to leave the rock and travel somewhere else, but this wasn’t a sustainable plan for the long term. So I decided to try to salvage my relationship with Malta by creating this blog. Maltatina is a photo diary of places I intentionally visit to remind myself how beautiful this island is and how lucky I am to live here, and to reassure myself that I made a very good decision by moving here in the first place.
I hope to positively influence anyone having the same sort of “chronic island fever” problem, inspiring them to get out and about to explore new places in Malta. I also hope that my blog will encourage those of you who have never been to the Maltese Islands to finally visit this gorgeous place. 🙂
