Malta by Bus


It is relatively convenient and improbably cheap to travel around Malta on the Maltabus, especially if you buy a pass. After a certain hour the buses stop running, so you have to be careful to ensure that you can return back to your base (especially if you have to change buses en route). For this reason alone, if I were to go to Malta again, I would stay in one of the larger towns and not a remote resort.

In my first few days in Malta, while working, I entertained notions of hiring a motorbike or scooter to explore the island. After travelling on the buses during my first day of holiday I reappraised the situation. As you can see in the photo above, the driver is navigating roads with his son standing next to him beside an open door. He seemed to show less regard for the motorcyclists that we overtook. For safety reasons, if I did want my own transport, I would hire a car.

I thought I would also provide a view of the somewhat mixed iconography above the driver:


It falls into the “mostly religious with a touch of porn” category. Then again it has been noted that the playboy image appears to have been “sanitised” here in the UK, even for children: What I saw and What Fink saw.
