Red phone boxes, Royal Mail, police with those old hard-hats, wild monkeys eating rich teas on the street. Gibraltar Its strange. I think I like it… apart from one thing; the ‘English pubs’ and the lack of good music. Maybe I don’t like Gibraltar. I cannot decide.
We decided to drive right into Gibraltar rather than park in La Linea and walk across. The queue took 2 hours to get in and nearly the same on the way out so probably only worth driving in if you’re staying more than a day.
We made lunch in the back during our wait in the queue for border control, occasionally joining in with this beeping game that the locals seem to do.
1. Always a huge queue getting in and out
2. English high street
3. Fuel is priced as if it were the 90s again
4. Alcohol is really cheap
5. Their own version of the british Pound
6. Big guns everywhere
7. English pubs
8. Wild Monkeys
9. Red phone boxes
10. They have Royal mail
11. No homeless. Not anywhere!
12. Maybe the coolest airport in the world
Gibraltar was definitely worth the visit and 2-hour wait. It’s a really nice place with friendliness of the English and the incredibly relaxed feel of Spain. I think I was just expecting there to be more of a scene. The young people all speak with English accents but don’t seem to do what many English people do in England. They seem to jog, keep fit, meet up with friends for lunch and probably do all their maths homework. I don’t know. The Truman show or something… There is not even a any litter anywhere!
