Malta – Comino Island

Malta Island, Malta

Comino Island (Kemmuna, Ephaestia) is the smallest from the three Malta’s inhabited islands. It’s called as an inhabited island, however there are only a few people living there! What’s interesting, there is even a hotel in Comino Island, so you can stay overnight.

I haven’t been to Comino Island during my trip to Malta, maybe one day…
Have you been there?

Malta – Gozo Island

Gozo Island, Malta

Gozo Island (Għawdex, Gaulos) is one of the three Malta’s inhabited islands.
It’s about 4 times smaller than Malta Islands. It’s also calmer, less touristic and less developed than Malta Island; well, it’s just different!
Many people go to Gozo Island by their own boat, or by boat from Malta Island.

Malta – Malta Island

Malta Island, Malta

Malta Island is the largest of Malta’s three islands.
It’s the most populous. The capital of Malta is located here, as well the international airport.
So, it’s more touristic than other Maltese islands, but definitely it’s worth visiting!

Malta – Introduction

Malta

Welcome to Malta!
Let’s “spend” September in a nice, warm, small, European island. 🙂

Have you been to Malta?
Recently, I often hear that someone is going to spend holidays on Malta. I scheduled Malta for September 2017, already some time ago – I guess it was a good coincidence. 🙂

Mongolia – Final impression

The Gobi Desert, Mongolia

Today, we finish the series about Mongolia on my blog.

If you like my photo-impressions – I’m very happy. 🙂
If you started to think about visiting Mongolia – I’m even more happy. 😉

I think, Mongolia is still one of these “unspoiled” countries, where tourists/travelers can enjoy the emptiness. So, it’s better to visit Mongolia earlier than later, before it’ll become a more popular destination.

I’d like to visit Mongolia once more, because there are many interesting places what I had to skip during my first trip. And maybe, I’ll change my opinion, that the Gobi desert is the most beautiful part of Mongolia. 😉

Mongolia – The skies of Mongolia

The Gobi Desert, Mongolia

After one day on the Gobi desert, it came to my mind, that it would be so easy to make an album called “The skies of Mongolia”. I was really impressed by the Gobi desert, i.e., how many different places belong to it (sand dunes, mountains), or the variety of animals and plants I saw them. All stunning landscapes together with blue skies, gentle clouds, rainbows etc. made me fall in love with Gobi! 🙂

Mongolia – Pika

Pika, The Gobi Desert, Mongolia

Today, I’m showing you a cute animal that I met in the Eagle Valley (see post from 23.08).

This small mammal, with big rounded ears, is called pika. Sometimes, people call it as “whistling hare”, because it looks a bit like a rabbit or a hare (well, a bit… maybe… 😉 ), and it makes an extra funny noise – kind of whistling or calling “peee, peee”.

If you are curios, what does the call sound like – check e.g., on YouTube (I smile each time while hearing it).

Mongolia – Camels

The Gobi Desert, Mongolia

There are Bactrian camels (with two humps) living in Mongolia.

Camels are important animals for nomads. They are used mostly as the means of transportation, what’s very convenient on the desert.

I was simply enjoying seeing camels or horses on the desert – nice animals and lovely scenery – that’s more than enough for me. 🙂
