Our year-long journey started at the end of April 2012, and here we are 1 year later... filled with memories to fill our life's content.
While in Morocco, we decided to take a ferry up to Gibraltar to spend a weekend. Not because of any significant landmark that we were dying to see here.. but to meet up with Jen's parent who were passing through for a few hours while on their Transatlantic cruise. They were kind enough to transport our laptops here for us, so that we can start the second part of our journey... working remotely, while travelling!
Jen was really happy to see her parents after such a long absence from home. We met them at the base of The Rock... a huge mountain on this tiny peninsula. We took a leisurely gondola ride up the mountain and slowly made our way down. The day passed so fast, but it was great!
On our way down, we ran into several wild monkeys... who are apparently extremely aggressive if you have food with you. We saw several monkeys leaping atop moving cars, and even saw one boldly go into the window of a minivan to steal a bag of food!
Since Gibraltar is part of the UK, we stopped at a Fish&Chips restaurant to enjoy a nice lunch with Jen's parent and their friends from the cruise. Then it was time to walk them back to their cruise boat and say goodbye :(.
It's been an amazing year of travelling but we're both actually really looking forward to working and feeling productive again... not sure a lot of people get to say that in their lifetime :)
Oh! We forgot to mention... since all of the hotels are crazy expensive here in Gibraltar, we decided to stay at a bed and breakfast.. on a boat... that's right... a boat!
