Easter Sunday Travels

Here in Germany, Easter is a four-day-long holiday affair lasting from Friday through Monday.  Nearly everything is closed, so it’s really a time for family and relaxation.  As much as I love Easter decorations — can’t get enough of those colorful Easter eggs on Pinterest! — and chocolate bunnies, sometimes I don’t mind a rather non-traditional Easter holiday.  Like last year, when I spent March and April in Norway on a research stay.  If I remember right, on Easter Sunday I was doing my best to stay upright on a pair of cross-country skis in Oslo.

Today is another non-traditional Easter, as I spend the day traveling to Malta for work.  I’ll land on the island in the late afternoon — with hopefully plenty of time to enjoy the pleasant 70-degree (F) weather, 16th-century houses, and views out over the water.   I’ll definitely be sharing more with you about my trip here, but in the meantime, you can follow me on Instagram for photo updates each day!

What do you have planned for this weekend?  Have you ever traveled to Malta?
