Country lane, northwestern Malta. Much of the island of Malta and it’s sister islands to the north, Gozo and Comino, look like this. Rolling hills, crumbling seaside cliffs, and hardy trees and scrub brush. Malta is an island of huge contrasts, too. The western side looks much like it did seven centuries ago when people first arrived on the island. And fishing and tourism provide most incomes. In the east, you’ll find endless high-rise apartments, heavy traffic, and every modern amenity you might need. You’ll also find there the international centers for online gaming and blockchain technologies.
