Having just returned from my first ever trip to Gibraltar, I’m determined to go back there some time this summer – too much to do – not enough time to explore this wonderful place. Excellent food, really friendly people, fine weather and it kind of looks “Spanish”.
Well, put it this way, I think you’ll agree from the picture on the right it doesn’t look like Britain. There is some absolutely fabulous history there and it stares you in the face, as indeed to the Macaques if they’re not stealing your shoes or plastic bags!
Probably the best part of a visit to Gibraltar is the ski-lift – from the top of the Rock you can see most of the place and it is fantastic. It’s no a lie to say that from one end of the country to the other is walk-able - a colleague and I managed most of that in 2 separate attempts.
If you get the chance and a good pair of shoes you can pretty much explore the place in a day or two but certainly I would like to spend 3 days there to get a better feel for the place. The airport is ultra-modern and a delight, the rock is just amazing and I’ve not heard better spoken English back in Blighty.
And the view – turn one way, you see Spain – turn the other – Africa! Incredible.
