    Gibraltar

    September 23, 2016 in Gibraltar

    I've been to Gibraltar 🇬🇮 many many times and I love the place, but this time I decided to give the old town a miss.
    On the walk along North Mole Rd, which takes you from the ship right in to the old town, I turned right at the first traffic island, that's the one with the statue commemorating the evacuation of the civilian population of the rock in WWII.
    There is nothing of any historical interest down there, but it was nice to get away from the tourist magnet of the old town.
    It is basically just a residential area, where I passed, the local Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall, and the local swimming pool, this as well as the indoor pool, has two outdoor pools fed directly from the sea.
    Further along the road is the very British Morrisons supermarket along with the obligatory McDonald's.
    Next came St Bernard's hospital which looks very new and modern.
    Finally I came across a lovely little park with views of the cruise ship and part of the port, quite an industrial view but nice all the same.
    On the way back to the ship I crossed over to the other side of North Mole Rd, to another residential area which overlooks the other side of the harbour and the end of the airport runway.
    It was quite exciting to see the planes takeoff, but it must be very noisy for the residents.
    So that was about it for my stroll around this part of Gibraltar, it did make a nice change from the old town, and was interesting in its own way.

    Gibraltar, Gibraltar

    October 16, 2017 in Gibraltar

    Had an interesting day today. Most of the team had mandatory ethics training in the morning. Which was “interesting”. Then Andy (Photographer) and I quickly grabbed some brunch and went to our cabins to get changed to do some much needed shopping. Before we left I was telling her how Jackson (the boyfriend) is going to be in Gibraltar tomorrow and she had a brilliant idea. She said I should leave something in Gibraltar for him. So being all excited I ran back into my cabin and came back out with a note. Locking myself out of my cabin. My cabin key is also my id for getting on and off the ship so I had to deal with it. After waiting for almost 45 minutes I finally got let into my cabin. Quickly grabbed my card and ran to Morrison’s for some groceries. Where Andy was waiting for me. It was a very early sail today (2pm) and with training and then locking myself out I only had about half an hour to shop for some groceries. On the way back to the ship I found the perfect place to hide the note for Jackson. I took some picture clues to help him find it. Which I’ve sent him. He’s very excited because he doesn’t know what he’ll find. I just told him I left him something.Read more
