Tourists

Last night we went for a walk along the Sliema /St Julians promenade as we do most nights during summer, we go quite late so the worst heat has given up and we usually end up with a take away drink of some kind. What’s funny is the massive amount of tourists popping up from nowhere it seems, they walk in their own way, you know when they take up the whole promenade, walking in slow motion, preferably in a row to make sure no one can get past and they seem totally unaware of  others. If they are on holiday, everyone else is too.

Last night I noticed another thing; Girls dress funny when they go abroad. I’m thinking especially when they go to a warm place like Malta and use clothes they never normally use if they come from a colder country. They look so dressed up and uncomfortable, with dresses and heels they found in the lost summer section at H&M and they actually put flowers in their hair. I thought that was something you see on a poster for a va-ca in Hawaii?

I’m all for girls dressing up, wearing a dress and heels looks a million times better than not caring at all but why don’t they just wear what they would normally wear on a night out in their own country? There’s no specific dress code on a mediterranean holiday is there?

On a side note I just remembered when I went to Portugal with my family many years ago. I bought a dress especially for that trip so I could look like a local hahahaha….how would I even know what they looked like? Maybe that’s what they’re trying to accomplish, who knows ;o)
