Ron’s biggest goal of the trip was to head to Gibraltar and see the big rock. On a clear day you can see to Africa. Pretty amazing!
A creaky cable car ride later and we were at the top. The monkeys came to visit and repeatedly try to steal any tourists items they could. I was nearly in tears laughing as a monkey stole a packages of cars from a two year old. That poor little boy!
Just look at these views…
On to Sevilla to see flamenco, alcazar, the cathedral and eat more tapas! I love Spain. So much that I would seriously consider living here.
