{winter-spring 2012}

get fit and make your new years resolution last at least until february: run the Malta marathon (or half marathon) February 26th, 2012 with over 1000 other runners! Begins in Mdina, and takes runners through the picturesque villages of the Maltese countryside, finishing in Sliema. Registration costs €25-€35. More information here.

is cycling more your thing? Consider signing up for the Cycle the Tour of Malta for €40-€50 (registration deadine is February 15th, 2012) held March 28th-April 1st, 2012. Feel the burn.

go to an open air club: drinks, cover charges and transport in, €50 should do the trick for a night at one of Malta's open air clubs like Numero uno or Gianpula (you might consider turning down your computer speakers before visiting these sites). check schedules for internationallly known DJ performances.

visit Palazzo Parisio and have lunch or tea for two in the courtyard at Caffe Luna. Wear something posh and feel glamorous for an afternoon, dahling.

become a member of Heritage Malta - €35 for an individual membership or €70 for a family membership provides free access to all museums and sites operated by Heritage Malta for the year (with the exception of  the Hypogeum). Well worth it.

take a cruise: board a boat for a round-the-island cruise and see every inch of malta's coastline. Most cruises also stop at Comino for several hours and lunch + refreshments are included.

take a private champagne tour of Casa Rocca Piccola in Valletta: we haven't knocked this one off of our to-do list yet, but this privately owned 16th century palazzo looks divine. Starting at 7 pm on fridays (€25 per person), the tour is guided by Marquis de Piro, descendant of the original de Piro owners of the palazzo. regular admission is €7/adults and €3.50/students. And come on, champagne!

tour a vinyard or cellar at a local winery such as Delicata, Marsovin, Camilleri, Meridiana or Montekristo. Some require a minimum number of guests so booking ahead is strongly recommended.

sponsor an animal at the SPCA: for €52 (or  €1/week) your sponsorship helps the SPCA provide food and shelter to a dog or cat that is unable to be homed. As a sponsor you will receive gifts and updates from the SPCA. For more information visit the SPCA Malta website.
