My life philosophy is simple: say yes whenever possible. When presented with a new adventure, I ask myself a few simple questions: Am I physically capable? Am I mentally able? Do I want to? Can I afford it? Is it (probably) safe? If the answer is yes, I say yes. Kayaking in Gozo soared through the test and before long, I was on a little red Kayak in the middle of the ocean with my guide, Ted, and fellow adventurer, Rich, on our way to El Comino Island.

A Review of Villagg Tal Fanal in Gozo

   

I spent my first day in Malta exploring the old streets of Valetta, touring St. John's cathedral, and eating over-priced fish. That night I stayed in a lovely hostel, but hostel none-the-less.

In the end I decided to spend most my time on Gozo, and I'm glad I did, but that's no...

That's why I've been researching the cheapest cities to visit in America. Here are five of the cheapest and most interesting options I've found.

I arrived in Malta all a flutter. It was my first time traveling solo in over a year and I could feel myself sinking into the familiar sensation of being somewhere entirely unfamiliar. The air felt fresher than the air in Scotland. Not that Maltese air is actually any fresher, but there's something about newness that tastes crisp and clear. I was excited to be on the road again and eager to start exploring. But after a long day of travel, I was also exhausted. It was in this state that I arrived at Boho Hostel. Boho is a hostel in Malta in...
