Where Is Malta?

Sat Jan 26, 2002 12:47 pm


We all know that our very own member Turbolet lives in Malta, you see it in almost every one of his posts. However, where in the heck is Malta anyway. I look at a map of the mediterranean and have no clue where at it is, Turbolet can you give me a clue as to where in the heck Malta is anyway?

Just wondering...  Confused

Well, where it is is one thing, but what it is is another - that place is friggin' awesome. You can take a picture of the whole place and the scale is such that you can see individual houses. If you find a roadmap which also shows airport runways, well let's just say you can get halfway from one end of the country to the other before you leave the ground!

I live in Malta and I cannot blame people for not knowing where it is - it is a very small island nation.

It is situated halfway between North Africa and Sicily, but slightly closer to Sicily than North Africa.It has just over a third of a million people, and has the highest density of population of any nation in Europe.

I was impressed when I went to the US, because when I went there I found that most people whom I came across at least had heard of it - many Maltese who go there say most Americans have never even heard of it.
But it is so small that you would need a maginifying lens to see it, even on a map of Europe...hee hee.

Some websites if you are interested....

Cheers !

As another geography fan, I'm also embarrased for the American education system. At least in this case, Malta is rather obscure. Not meant in a bad way. The people that realy bother meare the ones I see visiting the Tucson area and want to see the Grand Canyon. I hear people frequently state that they are going to drive to the Canyon the next day and be back theat night to pick up their airplane. Possible, yes. But it would be rather silly as it's a 12 hour roundtrip when Phoenix isn't doing it's best to imitate the LA freeway system.

And to get an idea how small it is - there´s no scale indicated in the first map:

I walked from Valletta (the capital, to be found on that tiny "tongue" to St. Thomas Bay, in the very East. Took me some time, but the weather was splendid (in February, mind you!) plus I saved 40 cent on the bus fare Big grin...
