I'm sure quite a few people out there (like me) are tired of countless debates on the subject. So here's my 2c on the matter: I made a video to shut these people up. I stuck a photo camera to my car's windshield, set it to take a photo every second, left from Wied iz-Zurrieq at dawn and got to Armier a couple of hours later passing from as little civilisation as possible. i.e. Wied iz-Zurrieq - Ghar Lapsi - Fawwara - Dingli Cliffs - Mtahleb - Migra Ferha - Bahrija - Fomm ir-Rih Bay - Gnejna Bay - Mgarr - Manikata - Mellieha Bay - Armier Bay.
During the trip I saw quite a few rent-a-cars driven by tourists. Those people saw more of Malta in a couple of days than a lot of people who have lived in Malta for decades ever will. Food for thought.
