With over 300 sunny days a year, Malta is the ideal place to live for the person who is tired of the cold. Malta is the most southern country in Europe and during the summer, it is not uncommon to reach temperatures as high as 38 degrees (Celsius).
The Island is small, and it is easy to get around. Given the size of the Island, you will always be close to the sea. This means that you can more or less always jump in for a swim to cool down, no matter where you are.
Do I need to speak the language?
In Malta they speak 2 languages as their native languages: Maltese and English. English is widely used by the vast majority of people, which makes it very easy to communicate with everyone and to feel like home. There are a lot of expats in Malta as well, which makes the likelihood of you meeting expats from your own country very high. This can definitely contribute to a feeling of security, and it can be a good steppingstone to build lifelong relationships.
Malta has a very rich culture and history, so if you are interested in that: Malta is definitely the place to be. Valletta is the capital of Malta and offers a lot of history. Valletta is actually announced as one of the world heritage sites by UNESCO.
