Gibraltar Inside Out Rock Tours

Our weekend in Gibraltar included a private tour with Inside Out Rock Tours and Carl.  We found them on the internet and Matt booked it last minute with a phone call from the hotel.  Carl was happy to take us on a private Standard Tour.  Because we opted for a private tour it was a bit more expensive, but it was worth it to have Carl and the van all to ourselves.

A Weekend Break in Gibraltar

At the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula in Spain there is a little spot of land with the most interesting history.  Gibraltar covers only 2.6 square miles and is a British Overseas territory.  I'd certainly heard of the Rock of Gibraltar, it's the logo for Prudential Insurance and I grew up hearing their advertising phrase "own a piece of the rock."  When we traveled through Spain by train on our way to North Africa a few years ago, we spotted the rock off in the distance.  But this time we were going to see the rock up close, inside and out.

The Macaque Monkeys of Gibraltar

I'm baaaaaaack!!  Monkeys!!  Let's just ignore the fact that I haven't blogged in a month, shall we?  And look I brought you monkeys!!  Yes, it's a blatant effort to distract you from my lazy blogging.  But lapses happen because, well you know, "life".  Now I'm back and hopefully on a much more consistent basis now that we've completed our move to Surrey.  Next week I'll be telling you about our city break to Gibraltar.  But today we'll ease back into things with... monkeys!!  Macaque monkeys to be exact.
