Malta | Smitten by the medieval Birgu
Birgu comprised of the last part of my Malta itinerary and I was already smitten by yellow limestone forts, grand harbours and azure blue waters that characterised the Maltese landscape. Birgu, also known by its title Città Vittoriosa, is an old fortified city on the south side of the Grand Harbour in the South Eastern Region of Malta.

The country checks all the plausible boxes for an exotic travel destination – delicious food, gorgeous landscapes, archaeological relicts, architectural marvels and of course, the allure of history. Malta is the world’s tenth smallest country…

There’s more to Agra than Taj Mahal – for instance, eating
Exploring Agra beyond the Taj Mahal for us would obviously involve eating! Can you believe that there is Chaat Gali, an alley dedicated to Indian street food like chaats, panipuris, rabri, faluda and many more. And of course, there is Mughlai food!
