We went over to La Linea a couple of Saturdays ago. The weather was beautiful, and for a change we decided to walk down promenade and there I saw the lines for a fabulous photo. I saw it was a bit humid and misty and thought these are the perfect weather conditions to use on one… Read More Get out of my shot!
Last year we didn’t do anything for Easter. The year prior we had family over to stay, so we took them to see the parade. This year we went over to La Linea, not just to see the parade, but also to catch up with some friends there. Easter for the religious Christian folk of… Read More Easter 2015
So after a few years of living here and seeing the feria from afar we finally went this year. I am not one for fun fairs, mostly because I can’t really go on many of the rides (thanks spine) and also because I am massively lazy and going to the feria, involves leaving my house… Read More Feria de La Linea
So my Dad arrived last week as he wants to see a ‘Gibraltarian winter’. It isn’t like winter in the UK and it certainly isn’t like the winters my friend from Canada is used to. But is certainly different to when he has visited previously. We have had some really great sunny days, but we… Read More The last few days…
Since we moved to Gibraltar I have heard about the La Linea Wednesday morning market. My lovely neighbour kept reminding me to go, but somehow I just never seemed to get there…. until this week! I’m told the market moves from town to town across the week, but most people from Gibraltar tend to visit… Read More La Linea Market
Yesterday after book-club I went for a lovely walk with a friend. She has never gotten to really explore the Upper Town area of Gibraltar and other than the walks I took with Dad while he was over here, I still haven’t learnt my way around. So off we went… We discovered what is probably… Read More Views from the Moorish Castle…
So yesterday I had the pleasure of showing a friend the Upper Rock Nature Reserve. He is here in Gibraltar with work, and we originally know him from our time living in Malta, but he is actually from Sweden and has never been to Gibraltar before! He hadn’t up until yesterday seen any apes, or… Read More Tourist Saturday
Today we went for a walk along the coastline. The wind was so strong, which made it the ideal weather for the local kite surfers. I love watching these guys. There is something very relaxing about watching these guys dip and fly around. I can’t imagine they feel the same way though, especially when they… Read More Kite Surfing – La Linea – Spain
We had family over last week, they flew into Gibraltar airport on Good Friday and other than crack out the scrabble (joke) we had very little in the way of entertaining them as Gibraltar seems to close down for Easter. Well Good Friday and Easter Sunday at least. Since moving to Gibraltar we have been… Read More Good Friday Procession – La Linea
These buildings are painted in the most vibrant of colours. It really makes them stand out from the crowd.
Today we went for a stroll along the sea front of La Linea as the weather is just perfection at the moment. (Also we were going to the ‘Carrefour’ shopping centre in La Linea . It has Zara, Bershka, Springfield and Pull and Bear, plus a few other places so it is worth the walk!)… Read More Kite Surfing in La Linea, Spain
In La Linea there are actually three branches of this business. One is a very small tapas bar, it is tucked down a side street. There is another in one of the small plazas which does tapas and full meals and then the restaurant is actually tucked away on one of the back streets. The… Read More Patagonia Restaurant – La Línea de la Concepción
