Hi Folks

Me & my partner move to Malta in January as my partners work will be based here for a couple of years. I have a 13 yr old son and 2 year old border collie!! We are both 46 and would love to meet up with some friends. We are from Aberdeen in Scotland and have found a rental property in Santa Maria Estate. I will be looking to meet for coffee, dog walking, shopping etc as my partner will be at work. Please get in touch. I haven't lived abroad before.

Hi, Alli, and welcome. Thanks for signing up for Premium Membership too!

Best of luck with the move. Moving overseas for the first time is a great adventure when you're 13 - that's how old I was when I first lived abroad. (Germany - my Dad was in the RAF.) A bit more hard work for the adults, of course! But you'll find plenty of support on here, I'm sure. :-D

There is a very nice cafe/bar on the left hand side of the main road coming into Mellieha run by good friends of ours, Kahn and Billy. I don't think I can mention their name on this forum. They are Scots too. In fact there is quite a strong Scottish contingent in Mellieha :)

Thanks Maxine I will have to have a lookout for there! Any advice on anything is appreciated as just had a quick drive through the area when we were viewing villas.

Hi Alli, following our PMs, we shall meet up with you once you are here and settled in and also we have got to "know" Maxine via this forum and the Noah's Ark shop whilst it was open. Could be a nice new friendship circle!

We will be back in Mellieha around the 8th January so if everyone fancies meeting up at the bar/cafe for a get together then I can arrange something - Karn does an awesome Steak Pie :)

We are coming over for a month in mid April and would love to meet up with you all.

This coming year will be filled with lots to do for our final move to Malta at the end of Dec next year, so meeting up with people for a chat about tips would be most welcome to us.

I think that we have been in touch too - a little earlier on this year, Roger. Just remind us as your arrival time approaches. You can use the PM as a good way of contacting.

We and several of our friends tend to meet on some mornings at another smallish café on the right as you walk down the hill a few shops after you have passed the HSBC (same side) in Mellieha. It has a small groceries shop to the right of it and you can walk through this into their café part. Can't says names in this section!

It has been opened exactly a year and is popular and welcoming.
