I hope you are well and have come to terms with losing an hour’s sleep last weekend!
I just wanted to do a quick post about our (mine and my husband’s) short trip to Gibraltar at the end of March.
We went to Gibraltar to visit my sister-in-law and her family as she lives out there and it means we only had to pay for our flights.
We flew out from Luton with Monarch Airlines and it was an uneventful flight. I only took my first flight in 2015 and it was to Gibraltar then. A lot of people said I was crazy because Gibraltar has one of the most extreme airports in the world but honestly, as I am not afraid of flying, I had no problem with it.
Gibraltar is a strange place to visit as a Brit – it is like going to a small portion of England with a big rock and everyone drives on the wrong side of the road. The flora and fauna is different to the UK – there is no soil on the rock so all the flora grows straight from the nutrients in the rock and there are Barbary Apes up the rock – but there are familiar road signs and a Morrisons.
One of the few things we did during our trip, apart from catching up with sleep, was go on a guided tour of The Rock of Gibraltar. If you are thinking of visiting, I would definitely recommend doing the minibus tour. It cost us £22 each (another thing that is bizarre for a Brit in Gibraltar is that you fly for 3 hours and then you can still spend your normal currency!) and the tour lasted around an hour and a half. Our tour guide was really knowledgeable and the tour was super interesting.
It feels like forever ago since we were away now even though it’s actually only been a week!
We filmed some bits of our time away and edited them together into a short video which I will link here in case anyone wants to watch it!
Stay Safe and Wonderful and Happy Travels!
