    We had a huge pub lunch in Irish town, named for the two boatloads of Irish women brought in to provide companionship for the troops who were bored and resorting to drink which was "bad for discipline".

    Remnants from old military buildings are re-purposed for residential and commercial use. Low taxes and few government regulations stimulate many business ventures, such as online gaming, banking, and tourism. Basically the community is a commercial venture so all projects have to be paid for without a loan.Read more

    November 5, 2017 in Gibraltar

    Vorgester simr in Gibraltar acho. Schono lustig wiemä i wenigä Meter vo Spaniä uf Ängland chunnt...
    Z' Gibraltar heimr üs uf d' Suechi gmacht nachemä Steuplatz, wos schiins hie am Hafä git. Leider heimr dä nienä gfungä. So simr bis zum "Europa Point" cho, dsch sonä üsserstä Zipfu vo Gibraltar u dert isch ä Lüchtturm, ä Moschee u ä Kanonä. Dr Lüchtturm het mega guet usgseh mit sim rot-wissä Chleid im blau-grau vom Himmu – dramatischä u majestätischä Aablick! Ufdr angerä Sitä vom Platz isch ganz chöniglich d' Moschee gstangä. Äs prächtigs Geböide!
    Nach däm mir ds aues hei agluegt, simr abä it Autstadt. Dert simr grad us ersts it Info u när dür d' Strassä gschlenderet. Krass, wie zmitts in Spaniä äs Mini-Ängland mitemä chliinä London cha bestah. D' Lüt redä aui änglisch, mä zauht mit Pounds (odr Euros) und i praktisch aunä Restaurants chamä Fish&Chips ha. Nur dr Vrcheer isch normau; sie fahrä o rächts.
    Wüumr dä Steuplatz geng no nienä hei gfungä, heimr üs entschidä, bi däm "Europa Point" ufem Parkplatz gah z' nächtigä. Währendem Znacht hets du plötzlech afah tropfä u Blitzä hei dr Himmu lah erhäuä. No heimrs gschafft aues inä z' ruumä, da hets scho aagfangä schiffä. Üsä erst Rägä sit ämnä Zitli! Mir hei üs de schnäu i Alj vrchrochä u hei no ä Fium gluegt.
    Gester heimr eich vorgha, früeh ufzstah fr ufä Bärg ufä. Z' Weckerlütä isch aber vomnä Platzrägä begleitet gsi u so heimr spontan entschidä, nomau ä Rundi witrzschlafä. So het üsä Tag när o usgseh. Nachdäm d' Sunnä dür d' Wulchä het mögä, simr losgfahrä. Abr chuum im Alj, hets widr afah schiffä. Bir Gondelistation heisi üs när o gseit, dass d' Gondeli momentan nid fahrä u so heimr üs entschidä, usserhaub ufnä Camping z' gah u dr Usflug ufä Bärg z' vrschiebä. Womr dr Camping hei gfungä u üs hei iigrichtet, heimr ä Fium im Alj-Chino gnossä u hei üs ä gmüetlechä Tag gmacht. Z' Wätter isch o widr schön gsi, abr nid so sichr. Drum simr bim Entschluss blibe, dr Usflug z' verschiebä. Am Aabä heimr CousCous à la Dana gmacht, hei nomau ä Fium gluegt u si gah schlafä.
    So, itz hüt hets klappet. Mit Sunneschiin simr erwachet u dä hetsech dr ganz Tag mögä ha.
    In the morning we met our camping-neighbours, Marie and Henning. They're norwegian people and nearly the same age as we are. After a long time of talking, we went to Gibraltar together.
    In Gibraltar we went up to the hill called "upper rock" with de cable car. On the hill it was a very nice view! We saw to Gibraltar, to Ceuta (Africa), to the Straight of Gibraltar and to Spain. Amazing and very stunning!
    As we went out of the cable car, we saw the first apes. Such cute animals! We made a roundcourse about 4km long and then went downhill with the cable car. After a good lunch with our new friends we said goodbye.
    Next stop: Málaga

    Was suppose to be taking Gangway photos today but another photographer offered to do Gangway for me so I could go out with Jackson on his day off. We didn't have much time though because it's an early sail (1:30pm) and I start work at 1pm. There's also no pictures today because I didn't take my camera with me. Knowing we didn't have much time. We got off and wandered around for a little bit. Stopping at a little bar called the Red Lion for breakfast. We got an omelette to share but liked it so much we got a second. Then headed to a restaurant to say hi to one of Jackson's friends who now lives in Gibraltar before heading back to the ship. Now we're relaxing for a little while before I have to head to work. We are docked with Oriana today so our sail away party is suppose to be Oriana themed in some way.Read more

    October 30, 2013 in Gibraltar

    Gibraltar ist ein britisches Überseegebiet, das auf einer Landzunge an der Südküste Spaniens liegt. Dominiert wird das Gebiet vom Felsen von Gibraltar, einem 426 m hohen Kalksteinmonolithen. Der Außenposten wurde ursprünglich im Mittelalter von den Mauren besiedelt und stand später unter spanischer Herrschaft. 1713 wurde das Gebiet an Großbritannien abgetreten. Zu den erhaltenen Festungsanlagen zählen die Überreste einer maurischen Burg aus dem 14. Jh. und die im 18. Jh. angelegten Great Siege Tunnels, die im 2. Weltkrieg erweitert wurden.Read more

    IPM again today. The photographer that I had traded IPMs with offered to take this IPM as well. I told her not to worry about it though. Gibraltar is usually my sleep and laundry day because I've done most things here. Most people just shop for cheap electronics.
