Malta is the biggest island in the archipelago and its coastline is 200 km (124 mi). It is situated on the Mediterranean Sea just 80 km (50 mi) south from Sicily. The island of Malta is about 28 km (27 mi) long and 15 km (9 mi) wide. Do not be fooled by these numbers, this island has so much to offer that after my 3 days stay I was regretting not staying longer.
To be honest I was not always excited about layovers. Hours of unnecessary waiting made me seek out direct flights or those with the shortest possible connection. When did my thinking change? Exactly last year, when my 12 hours layover in Vienna turned into quite an intensive sightseeing experience. After Vienna was London, Shanghai and Copenhagen, which is today’s topic.
