Last stop in Europe in Gibraltar
Gibraltar is a small British territory in the south of Spain. A city of about 30,000 inhabitants in a 6.8 square km (2.6 square mile) area means that it gets a little cramped from time to time. To clear my mind I spend a lot of time by the sea, making the most out of the great view of the entrance to the Mediterranean, Spain and Morocco. I’ve been taking photos on film and digital cameras for a number of years now and only recently got a smartphone which opened me up to the world of Instagram and “iPhoneography”. So here is a selection of photos I have taken in Gibraltar on my iPhone.
Finding the interesting aspects of everyday things, the things nobody notices or cares to notice.
A weird mix of cultures (including Spanish, English, Italian, Maltese, Portuguese, Arabic, etc.) and languages (we speak English and Spanish with our own twist) all mashed together in a really small area that has no doubt led to something unique.
A perfect day would be waking up to perfect weather (which isn’t rare), spending the morning having coffee and tea in the city centre, lunch by the sea and spending the evening buying supplies for a great BBQ.
Like Best Coast said: “Why would you live anywhere else? We’ve got the ocean, got the babes, got the sun, we’ve got the waves”. AND, we have the only free roaming monkeys in Europe. We also have fantastic views of our bay and the Strait of Gibraltar.
The worst thing might be that it can be a little crowded or a little too much if you’re not used to it.
