New Bradt on the block

09 April 2019 | Gattaldo

The 4th edition of the Bradt Travel guidebook Malta & Gozo is out in the bookshops.

I met travel writer Juliet Rix quite a few years back in Malta. She's visited Malta for decades and knows the place well. It's been a long time but I vaguely recall I was doing up our first property in Valletta back then and so we met for a coffee in the capital. The conversation flowed as we both have a great love for the island, both in its history and its people.

She encouraged me to start writing the guide's LGBTQ chapter of the book and so started a most pleasant collaboration.

Juliet's research is meticulous and the guide has built a reputation for getting beneath the surface of the island to discover what lies beyond the sea and sun. Its flowing style makes it easy to find the information but I find it also goes deeper with the historical and archaeological insights. In this edition there's also information on wildlife and bird-watching, and plenty on Gozo and Comino.

Before you head over to Malta, I recommend getting the 4th edition of Bradt's Malta and Gozo. I always find that reading on my destination's history is a big component of the pleasure of travel.
