Valletta Harbor, Malta
|"A ship has a soul." John Rhodes Sturdy|
Lately all I've been seeing on the news (even though it's slowly dying now) is that unfortunate ending of the Costa Concordia cruise ship.
That very same cruise ship was in Malta several times, exactly at the very same place where this cruise ship in the photo is. This is Malta's only harbor for big cruise ships such as the one in the photo. But it's not your everyday harbor. This harbor is stretched over a long distance and the stretch is full of restaurants, shops, bars and even a few nightclubs.
Even though I like to admire the engineering behind cruise ships I am not the least bit interested in ever going on one.
