  3. Not keen on Paul, I have to say. I remember a fruitless argument with some Jehovah’s Witnesses about his views on women c 1982. Couldn’t be bothered these days!


  4. Ah yes, that shipwreck

  5. I remember when we visited Malta in June 2013 it was the Feast of St Peter and St Paul – we saw part of the celebrations when we walked around Rabat. So, actually St Paul’s Bay should be renamed St Paul & Andrew’s Bay 😉.
