Super cool! A series of tunnels inside the northern end of the Rock of Gibraltar. They were dug out from the solid limestone by the British during the Great Siege of Gibraltar at the end of the 18th century. Be sure to check it out!
If you think Paltrow is harsh on Coke, just wait until you hear her on processed cheese. We all love a bit of Dairylea, right? The occasional cheeky Cheestring? Nope: Paltrow told Jonathan Ross in 2012 that she would "rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can." She was given a chance to redeem herself in a Goop Q&A last month, but didn't take it. "You know, crack might be extreme, but spray cheese is not my kind of party."
Gibraltar is much more interesting than politics, linguistics and currency. I’m sure you would much prefer some non-important but kind of cool things about Gibraltar, right? Well, during my short visit to the territory, I learned some pretty weird things about Gibraltar. It’s always been the kind of place that is not completely normal – but that’s probably understandable seeing as it’s so small and has been under the constant threat (or reality) of invasion for more than a thousand years. There is basically no tax on goods in Gibraltar. I know, pretty fantastic, right? You should see the number of people buying cigarettes and booze at the shops on the way out of the country. A packet of 20 cigarettes in the UK will cost you about £10 but in Gibraltar it is about £2. A large bottle of good gin might cost £25 in the UK but will cost about £10 in Gibraltar. It’s almost worth the airfare to stock up on alcohol!
