Jan 20, 2018 - Gibraltar - Here We Come

Day 7 - Saturday 20th January Off as the sun rose & headed down to Gibraltar. Good, fast roads all the way. The Spanish roads have certainly improved since we used to live down in La Linea, just outside Gibraltar nearly thirty years ago. The scenery was lovely all the way down to the coast with mountains all around. That is till we got the coast road near Malaga. The rest of the way was through the awful sprawl of buildings that stretched almost all the way to Gibraltar. A half mile wide strip of urban over population that blights a...

Feb 4, 2014 - Gibraltar

This morning we caught a taxi from the campground to the border at Gibraltar – a ten minute ride for €8. As we walked through the border control some people held up ID cards or passports but the officials weren’t a bit interested so we just walked through. We picked up a map at the information desk and walked across the airport runway and into town. We made our way to the cable car via Main Street - a very busy shopping pedestrian-only strip – and caught the cable car to the Top of the Rock for £8.50 (Pounds Sterling is the currency on...

Feb 3, 2014 - La Linea

We had showers (hot this morning after two days of cold showers!) and did a load of washing. When we paid our bill we received a 10% discount and they didn’t charge us for the first two days of WiFi, so we paid €84 for 4 nights. After saying our goodbye’s to Don and Sandy who are staying a few more days at Torremolinos, and Albertine and Glenn who are heading to Marbella, we set off at mid-day for La Linea. We paid 3 tolls totalling €9.70 on this trip and it wasn’t long before it started to rain which was particularly annoying when we...

May 13, 2008 - Torremolinos to Seville via Gibraltar

To see Gibraltar from the bus is quite arresting as the rock is very distinctive. We had to walk across the border and change to smaller buses because of the narrow streets in Gib. It is still very English with the policeman and the post boxes but of course most people speak both Eng and Spanish and both currencies are accepted though the Eng is better value. We drove to the top of the rock and saw St Michael's cave which is very large and deep. It was used as a shelter during the war but it is very damp. They use it for concerts too but...

Aug 2, 2007 - Gibraltar

Today I headed to Gibraltar via Alegeciras to find somewhere to stay and drop off my bags. You enter Gibraltar from La Linea de La Concepción and the border crossing is ridiculously easy; I don't think they even put my bags through an x-ray. Mind you, my bag went through an x-ray at the train station in Seville and the operator was literally reading the paper and not paying the slightest attention to the screen, so x-rays aren't always much use! I stopped at the information desk to pick up a map and the guy was very friendly, and very quick...
