From Portugal, we drove over to Gibraltar, which was a nice drive. The traffic to cross the border was a huge headache, because we not only had passport control, we also had to wait while they closed the main road in/out, because it crosses the airport runway, and a plane was taking off soon. Zzzzz…
Anyway, welcome to a fun piece of geography, geopolitics, and weird history!
I really liked Gibraltar, and we also caught the ferry from here to Morocco.
For food, check out the small-but-friendly Sai Darbar vegetarian restaurant, which has mostly Indian food but also some burgers. They’re more than happy to point out vegan items.
From there, we went up to the top of the rock, of course!
On top of the rock, you can see Barbary macaques, the only monkey population in Europe, which wound up here from Morocco prior to the British takeover.
The history, politics, and just everything about Gibraltar is super interesting.
The sun was setting, and we had to get to our ferry after first parking the car back in Spain for a much cheaper rate while gone. Thanks for a great few hours, Gibraltar!This entry was posted in Europe, Gibraltar
