The Santa Maria fell on Friday 15th August and as such Maltalingua School of English was closed. Instead we decided to charter a private yacht for teachers and students and spend the day touring the Maltese Islands. It turned out to be the best Maltalingua excusions ever!

At 09:45 we met at our usual meeting point and by the time everyone had arrived, we left by 10:15. The coach departed St.Julians and made our way to Mellieha, in the north of Malta where our Turkish gullet awaited us.

Unfortunately our trip was delayed shortly after we left, funnily because one of the ropes got tangled round one of the propellers. No problem, this only meant more time on the boat and that we would return later in the afternoon, win win for us. 😀

Once we departed, the music was turned up and the trip had begun. Maltalingua staff and students already settled down, started wearing their sun creams, and buying their first drinks, whilst others just chilled on the deck. Our first stop would be Comino, but because of the size of our boat and the vast amount of boats out that day, we parked just outside the Blue Lagoon. The sea was simply beautiful, too nice, too tempting not to jump in.

We had students buying burgers and beers, others jumping from the boat, some snorkelling and others chilling on our water noodles. It was just fantastic. At one point a 600 horsepower speed boat came by and offered to take some of the students for a blast round the caves. Never have I seen students have so much fun going so fast, it was epic.

Once all back on the boat, we cranked up the music and now the party was in full swing. Students where dancing everywhere and nothing could have ruined our day. I am confident enough to say that I am sure everyone on board will never forget that day. Sun shining, crystal clear water, super good music and great students.

Shortly just after 15:00 hours, we changed our venue to a less crowded bay just round the corner for more swimming and dancing. It is such a good feeling when after long hours of planning everyone said they had suhc a good time!

Just after 16:30 we made our way back, still dancing and jumping around, till we literally arrived back at the dock. Once back on the coach everybody just knocked out, all except for one if I’m honest (Luca!) All in all, I can’t think of any other way how this day could have been any better and I’m sure everyone on board would agree with me.
