A blistering hot day at the beach, an ice cold beer in one hand, and a pastizz in the other. The only thing even more Maltese than that image is a festa, with fireworks lighting up a small village’s skyline. And even though feasts in Malta are usually part and parcel of summer, we still have a lot happening before 2019’s hot season arrives.
