A possible halt-a in Malta

There are slim pickings nowadays when it comes to international travel for U.S. citizens, but the short list of countries allowing them entry is steadily growing. While the European Union still maintains its travel ban on Americans, a few member states — like Croatia — have made an exception. In the case of Malta, that exception comes in the form of…
