Hey everyone! I am back with another Travel Tuesday post, this time from Gibraltar. On our way back from Morocco, we decided to spare a few hours here because we heard so many amazing things about it. So as we arrived to Algeciras, we took the first bus towards La Linea (yes, it's not a number of a bus, it's a town). From there we just walked til the Spanish - British border, and we set foot in Gibraltar. It was not my first time crossing a border on foot (if you remember, I posted about crossing the French - German border on foot a few months ago). We decided to pay for a tourism company so that we could see everything in a short amount of time, but if you ever visit, be sure to stay at least a full day and explore it on foot! We didn't have time to wander around the city, we just went with a taxi on top of the rock.
A few interesting facts about Gibraltar:
- it's a British territory, but they drive on the right (because it would be too much work to change the sense at the boarder)
- the only free-to-roam primates in Europe live here, and legend says if the Apes leave Gibraltar it will cease to be British
- one of the worlds shortest airport runways is also situated here, it intersects Gibraltar's busiest road, which has to be closed every time a plane lands or departs
- You can get married in just a day's notice, and it will be recognized worldwide. A lot of tourists live with this opportunity, but also famous people like Sean Connery and the famous duo - John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
PS: Be sure to check out my vlog as well! Because I had only a few footages from Gibraltar, I decided to add the Malaga part as well! But pictures from Malaga will be up next week guys!
PSS: Also, next week I am on an adventure, so don't worry, we will have loads of great content on the Travel Tuesday section. Going to Belgium and the Netherlands. If you want to see pictures sooner, don't forget to follow me on Instagram: @saci_cfc
