365 Writing Prompts: Tourist Trap

What’s your dream tourist destination– either a place you’ve been and loved, or a place you’d love to visit?

I had the opportunity to visit a variety of places  I loved, among them I loved Malta the best. We spent a month in the capital Valetta for teaching practice. There were quite a few of us, we were divided in groups of three and there were apartments rented for us by our administrative staff.

It was the month of June, the weather was fabulous, there was no precipitation the whole month. The landlady was a very amiable person.

One of the things I felt important was  we did not have to worry about being robbed while we were away teaching. We left our apartments unlocked for the maids to  clean the place and also to wash the dishes if we left them in the sink.

Apart from all that I found the people of Malta very friendly. We were free to visit all the places of interest. I had a good time, I’d love to go back to see the changes in Malta.

365 Writing Prompts: Standstill

For a moment today,time stands still –but you can tweak one thing while it’s stopped. What do you do?

I’d like to pull it back to when I was in Malta for teaching practice, Every day I left the apartment early to catch the bus which took me to the school where I taught the little kids, I’m not quite sure how old they were but they were lovely.

They always answered together whenever I asked a question,what was unique about it was their manner of speaking was different from what I heard in other schools, it sounded musical, I of course assumed this was clearly a Maltese way.

We were in Valetta,the capital of Malta, the people were friendly, they knew we were there to teach.
