Discovering Malta


Hi everyone!


I’m currently starting my last month in Malta. During this past month I’ve had the opportunity to discover and to learn more about the history and the culture of the Maltese island.


First thing I would like to say is that I’m finally getting used to the Maltese bus system. The key is to remain patient, you should also bring a sweater or a jacket with you because it seems like they are very proud of there AC and put it on even though it’s getting chilly outside. If not you’ll probably catch a cold like I did haha!


About the internship, everything is still going really well, I’m learning more about how the company works and how to do a lot of things. What I enjoy about Quad Consultancy is that whatever you are working on, it’s always done in a good atmosphere. I feel lucky I have found a company where I can discuss and exchange opinions with people, and not only about professional matters, but everyday life subjects too.  


This past month and a half I’ve visited many places in Malta. From Valletta to Comino, Marsaxlokk, Birgu, and Ghajn Tuffieha’s beautiful orange sanded beach. My favourite place is probably Ħaġar Qim; a mix of culture and history right next to the sea. If you’re a bit adventurous you can go out of the path and go down the hill, you’ll discover a perfectly abandoned cove where you can swim and relax.


I really enjoy the fact that there are beaches all around the Island, I went to Comino, Ghajn Tuffieha, Mellieħa, Paradise Bay… My favourite one is Ghajn Tuffieha, surrounded by nature, fine sand and beautiful water. I advise you to go in the morning, so you can find the perfect spot before other tourists arrive.


For this upcoming month I’ll probably be relaxing and enjoying my last weeks here in Malta while watching the World Cup haha. Unfortunately, I’ll have to write an internship report for my University so it will take me some time, but I will still take advantage of the remaining of my time here.


Take care,

Guilhem
