This trip to Gibraltar with Monarch looks so much fun! Travel Dispatch Social Media Series: Greetings from the rock of Gibraltar - Dispatch from my Brother on the Cruise Ship. Finally dry land after 8 days at sea. I have never been so happy to get out and stretch my feet. Gibraltar is small at only 2 ½ square miles (they drive American style which surprised me - since even the US Virgin Islands drive on the wrong side so to say.)
