    Second year that we have stopped at the Marina and with access to public toilets and washing machine it makes for a good 24/48hour stopover. Eating out in La Linea is not very pleasant and it's a bit of a trek back into Gib on foot so cooking in the van was our chosen option.
    I must confess l haven't been very enthusiastic about Gib as a place to visit feeling quite rundown and scruffy as we walked around.

    I'm dumping the van for a night or 2 and got a hotel booked in Gib. Want to see some of the military type stuff around the island and maybe some of the caves. Not fussed about the apes but anything else you can recommend doing?

    Looking forward to the casino on the permanently berthed cruise ship. Wish me luck.

    Can anyone tell me where the grey waste dumping bitty is in this aire? I was parked a few vans up from the laundry cabin a week or so ago and had a cycle up to the end of the marina but couldn't find the dumping point anywhere.

    I'll be back here at the weekend again and will probably need it.

    Head up away from the laundrette, turn right at the end and its about 200m on your left.

    If you want to get around, use the local buses.
    No.2 will take you from the town centre to Europa Point (great views). It also stops by the Cable Car if you want. Every 15 minutes weekdays, 30 mins weekends.
    Nos 4 and 8 will take you to the not-often visited Eastern side. Recommend that you get off at “Both Worlds” and gently walk back at least to the bus stop at Catalan Bay, which is itself a sort of fishing village.. or it was once!

    If you get the bus, get the “Adult Hoppa/Senior Hoppa if over 60”. This gives you all day travel on all buses except nos 5 and 10 which are run by a priviate company.

    No buses will take you up the Rock. If you are lucky, you might see some monkies hanging aroung Trafalgar Cemetery, a nice historical site in itself. To get there you will need to walk all the way along Main Street to the southern end. Sounds a long way but nothing is far here. (You can get number 2 bus from a stop near the Cemetery. Difficult to explain how.)

    Enjoy...
