WHOA!

Saturday 11 June 2022


We had a pretty huge day on Saturday, broke our rule of only doing ONE thing, and felt the consequences of it by the time we arrived home.


Our first stop was the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of Ta' Pinu, the shrine of assumption (existing before 1545 AD - https://aleteia.org/.../the-miraculous-story-of-our-lady.../ ) which was just glorious. Differing incredibly to the other churches we have visited so far, in the sheer beauty of its simplicity of ornate design within the stone itself rather than being adorned with all of the things. And the view from here is spectacular!


We then ventured into Victoria for a late lunch and a little shopping, planning on watching Top Gun Maverick in the cinema at 5:30pm. Though we still had a little time up our sleeves... not enough worth going back home and coming back in, but too much to just sit around and wait. So why not visit this structure that is supposed to be the oldest standing in the world right? It is probably an arch or stacked rock or something we can just see quickly...


OH MY F*CKING GOD! The imposing Ġgantija Neolithic temples - recognised by UNESCO ( The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) as THE OLDEST (yes THE oldest) freestanding building in the world. Dated somewhere between 3500 and 3200 BC. That is older than the Pyramids, older than Stonehenge... and this fricken thing is fricken phenomenal! And I touched it ( whoops).

We topped the night off by watching Top Gun as planned. Bloody awesome movie by the way, if you haven't seen it, do! It absolutely does the original film justice and pays tribute to the film and "Goose" magnificently.
