This year Ben and I decided that we'd treat ourselves to a Christmas holiday in Malta rather than give each other a specific Christmas present. We were away for a week and at first we didn't know what to do with ourselves as we have been so busy recently that we couldn't remember what it was like to do absolutely nothing. So, we packed up the SUP Board (previous posts here & here) and went to the Golden Bay on the North West coast of Malta. With a delicious picnic and an abundance of water, we rolled out our towels and had a go on our Stand Up Paddle Board. The water was calm and crystal clear, the weather was lovely and warm, the equivalent to a British summer which felt odd in December! However the views where breath taking and I can really see why it is called the Golden Bay.
