Keep your head in when you drive through the tunnel!
We drive to Europa Point at Gibraltar’s flat southern end behind the
rock. The roads here are a bit narrower than in Spain and the tunnel
measures just four metres tall at its highest point halfway through,
and as little as 3.40 metres tall on either side of the road. As our
little house on wheels measures just 3.70 metres tall, this means we
have to keep as close to the middle of the two lanes as possible.
Because there's no oncoming traffic, this turns out to not pose a
problem, and we pass through the tunnel intact.
From Europa Point, you can see all the way to Morocco, the coastline
of which lies just 21 kilometres away. We park at the lighthouse and
go into town by bus. We're immediately surrounded by everything
British: typical British buildings, red double-decker buses, red phone
boxes and post boxes, quintessential British pubs and children in
school uniforms. Fish and chips for lunch is obligatory!
