Crossing Windsor Bridge Upper Rock Nature Reserve Gibraltar

In the spring of 2017 I was busy exploring as much of southern Spain as I could before heading off to China for another one year teaching contract. After some truly amazing trips to Seville, Granada and Cordoba, I arrived in Gibraltar with comparatively low expectations. Somehow I’d built up an image of a crass, Eastenders-type community set in the sunshine.
