I was very amused by the constant references to "us, here in Britain" as they stood on the dock in Gibraltar.

A slow start to the series but improving hugely week on week.

To me Gibraltar often feels more British than Britan itself.

I'd love to go but no direct flights from NI. Best price is about £800 return!

We have flown in to Malaga a few times its about 85 miles away, that might work out cheaper for you.


Property prices are a bit like London down here. Second hand cars seem to be think of a price and triple it. Was looking at a 318i today probably about a 1995 and they would like £3000 for it.

On the other hand you can get a litre of Bombay sapphire for about £10.

lol, it has taken a hell of a long time to save up for it mate. I am looking forward to visiting Cannes (booked a trip to Monaco and around the F1 track ), Pisa, Sardinia, Gib, and some other places I cant spell. It is the honeymoon we never had and our first decent holiday we have had with just the two of us. Still, it might be rough seas all the way and I could end up chucking up for the fortnight eeeewwwwwwwww

It started off very slowly but built to a fine end.

BTW did TG's reference's to Gib being British result in a diplomatic incident? Shocked Laughing Laughing Cool

I'm intrigued why would it lead to a diplomatic incident?

Gib is British
