Hjem > ENGLISH > Trip - Gibraltar 2008

10th April -08 I stood at the airport with butterflies in my tummy again and this time together with our miracle-boy Pikku Poika as travelling companion. We were going to Gibraltar to meet Pikku Poika`s new mum and dad.
We left home early Thursday morning and after 4 hours and 15 minutes with the plane we arrived Malaga, Spain. Pikku Poika slept in his travelling bag the whole time and behaved like he had never done anything else than travel round the world.
For almost 2 months ago we got a enqu
iry about our little heartbreaker Pikku Poika and if he maybe would consider moving to Gibraltar to live together with his gran-uncle Seibrin Black Boy in David and Valerie`s home.
On the airport in Malaga David was waiting for us to come and to take us home to Gibraltar. After 1 1/2 hour in the car we were there.
Home at David`s was mum Valerie and gran-uncle Bumblepentu waiting for us and Bumblepentu took Pikku Poika into his home with a smile :)

I spent 4 fantastic days with Pikku Poika and Bumblepentu in David and Valerie`s home. I have been on sightsing and seen a lot of what Gibraltar has of sight.
You can also look into
Pikku Poika`s own page for more pictures of him and his gran-uncle Bumblepentu.

     Rock tour
Most of its upper area is covered by a nature reserve, which is home to around 230 Barbary Macaques, commonly known as "apes", the only wild monkeys found in Europe.

This little man jumped on to the car and found himself a god spot at the car-mirror and followed us for a while. I was so surprised over this so I laught and screamed to David; look at the monkey David, look, LOOK :)
