Gibraltar Commentaires

I have to say that I would stay in Spain. Gibraltar is terrible -- full of fat, lardy people!
Gibraltar is very historic and full of interest and compliments Spain. The only problem with Gibraltar is some of the dodgy finance companies in it, selling football insurance and taking people's money for bits of paper not worth anything. Beware of men in suits and Aussies that want to help you.
Gibraltar's main problem seems to be the British expats found in every bar and restaurant complaining that it's crap and not like England (they do the same in Spain) and the low life Spanish cigarette smugglers stuffing half-dismantled mopeds with cigarettes on every street corner. The locals are extremely friendly; depending on the time of year, weather can be quite warm and humid. Shopping is extremely cheap if you avoid the establishments aimed at lightening tourists' wallets. If you expect Spanish food (like tapas) in a British country, be prepared to pay for it. Historically, the place is amazing. To see all of the tourist attractions (many by appointment with a military guide) you need at least a week in the country. To really enjoy the place (and the beaches) several weeks and an open mind are recommended.
I keep going back to Gibraltar since I was sixteen (am now fifty-five). It has changed a lot and not all for the best, admittedly. As with anywhere else, though, you need to look at the history and culture of the place -- the locals are really terrific and multicultural. If you want a week on the beach with lots of booze and karaoke, go to Spain. A cheap hotel saves money for everything else you may want to do. I'd live in Gibraltar if I could.
Gibraltar is a boil on the arse of humanity. The majority of those in positions of power -- the police -- are sleazy, corrupt arseholes. Want a hit? Ask a policeman ... he probably has his own supply. Rich Auntie Mable not dying quick enough? Take her to Gibraltar and bump her off ... the pathologist is as much use as a chocolate fire-guard or shag a copper and get away with it!
Gibraltar is an wonderful place and the people are very helpful and kind. The food is very good although prices are higher than some places in Spain, but the choice is fantastic! Drinks and cigarettes are greatly reduced as there is no VAT tax. The history of Gibraltar and all the fantastic sites to see is really worth a holiday there. You need the time to spend learning about the Rock and the people to get the full benefits. This is a warm and fascinating part of Britain.
