A February 1996 trip
to Gibraltar by jwagner
Quote: Gibraltor feels like a time warp after spending days in Spain. It's a taste of England on the shores of the Mediteranian sea.
Spend the afternoon at an English pub and stick around for a meal of pub food. Take the van tour of the Rock of Gibraltar, stopping to see the overly domesticated Apes. See the giant caves that were bored out of the side of cliffs when Gibraltar was an important defensive position for the British Empire.
Stay in Spain and cross over by foot. It will save you the hours-long wait to get your car cleared and the lodging will be less expensive.
Crossing the big runway at the British run airport--a necessity--is also a thrill. Watch for incoming planes.
Pub food is less expensive than some of the restaurants in Gibraltar and is a nice break from your typical mediteranian diet.
