Malta is a small island nation located in the Mediterranean Sea. It is a member state of the European Union as well as the Schengen Agreement.

It is very densely populated, and there is very little distance between centres. Hitching is very easy though, often you don't even have to leave town. Gozo Island especially is very easy to hitch around. Everyone knows English, and many can communicate in Italian and Arabic.

Touchdown! That's a really cool way of ptuitng it!

Public Transport

Public transport is very cheap, but can take quite a long time, especially during rush hour. The other annoyance is that almost all public transport is based from the main cities (Valleta in Malta, and Victoria on Gozo), so you have to always go there to make connections.
