Maybe I should stick to the hotel pool while we are away. That having been said I don't expect that the sea will be very warm, and the beaches are mostly pretty rocky so I expect we will be doing much of sun and water bathing at the hotel anyway.
That having been said, I don't think there are too many sharks around Malta (apart from the ones selling time share). But just in case I think I will stick to swim shorts, I may not be that large but I am getting increasingly hairy by the day.
By now my chest is pretty hairy, but the hair on my legs and arms are still fairly short, I am pretty sure that no one will notice or indeed care, but I think it will make wife happy, which should make the holiday that much happier for all of us. Anyway we are off tommorow and I am glad, so very glad we are going, I need to relax and it will be so very nice to spend some time as a family.
