Malta in the media: December 2013

Malta has been getting a lot of traction in the media as of late. It seems that every other day photos and stories of Malta are popping up in my social media feeds from HuffPost and CNN. One little island sure can make a lot of noise in the international media.

In case you missed these headlines, here is a picture of Malta in the media during December 2013.

I think these stories serve as a good reminder that even the most beautiful Mediterranean islands struggle with complicated issues. 

Malta made's list of the best places to retire to, again.

New York Times: "Beneath Malta's Beauty, A Tangled History"

This has been the country's line for years.

Who said money can't buy everything?

See above.

  1. Hi Jess,
    These were all a great read! My partner and I just moved to Malta today, I saw your post and these articles were an eye opener, thank you!
    I found the EU citizenship for sale article particular interesting, seems like a desperate move?!
    Great post!

    1. Hi Carolina,

      Thanks for commenting! You're very welcome.

      It is a bit of a desperate move, I suppose. But more countries than you would expect have a way to 'purchase' citizenship. Like Canada, where I'm from.

  2. It looks like a wonderful little country! Friends from there never stop talking about it and we've seen ads all over Brussels and Paris! It's definitely high on our visit list. 2014, you heard that?


Let's talk.
