My Motorhome: A Caravan of all things !!

Donít get too excited at the prospect of visiting it. We went there last year. We wonít be going back!
The best way I can think of describing it is that itís like a chunk 1960ís Portsmouth that has been towed out to the Med and dumped, it doesnít appear to have had any investment since! There frankly is nothing of real interest to be seen. The streets are very narrow and crowded, there are loads of ďtatĒ shops and plenty of ďBritishĒ style pubs.
The ONLY thing I could say was interesting was the rock and itís associated tunnels etc. Donít even THINK of walking up unless your a tri-athlete. There is a cable car (expensive) and there are slightly lower priced mini bus trips to be had (the roads on the rock are VERY narrow indeed)
If you can find a coach/bus trip from a distance out thatís what I would go for, the chances of finding a parking space anywhere near the rock are infinitesimal, if you DO find a parking space you will need a trust fund to pay for it.
I am sure you can see a bit of a pattern to the responses! Thereís a reason for that!
You have been warned
Its not the destination that matters.
It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
