Welcome to my homepage,my name is Joseph Abela I am in my fifties and married to my wife Miriam who is always there for me. We have two grown up children, Christian, Claire. Malta is our home, a group of three islands in the Mediterranean Sea, Malta, Gozo and Comino which are inhabited. The terrain is low and rocky with coastal cliffs. Malta, in the heart of the Mediterranean, is a melting pot of civilisations with a history stretching back thousands of years. The country has been inhabited since around 5200 BC and a significant prehistoric civilisation existed on the islands prior to the arrival of the Phoenicians who named the main island Malta, meaning safe haven. Later the islands were for centuries the seat of the Order of Knights of the Hospital of St John and then part of the British Empire.
