    I didnt know whether to laugh or cry.

    We were due to get married in Gibralter at 11 am, and at 10.30 am we still waiting were in a long traffic queue arriving from the Spanish side.

    The only official on duty that morning, stopped checking cars through to Gibraltar and walked up and down the road, gazing at the traffic queue, smoking a cigarette.

    At five minutes to 11 he stamped out his cigarette end with his shoe, walked back to his booth and allowed several cars to pass including us!

    As we approched Gibrallta, a man with a VERY official looking document waved us over to the side of the road and told us we needed to pay a certain amount to enter the Gibralta area. Luckily and nice man yelled at him and chased him away. He was just a con man that wanted to get money from the unsuspecting tourists.
    There is definatetly no charge to enter Gibralta, but a very long line of traffic to retun babck into Spain. The Spanish officials make it as unpleasant as possible for the British to move back and fourth across the border.

    expect to queue when you're leaving Gibraltar.
    The Guardia Civil takes extraordinary pleasure in searching any (!) car, truck, mobile home, motorbike, scooter etc. Maybe it's some sort of revenge for having to endure the British presence on the Hispanic peninsula. (But Gibraltar gets destroyed in any second-rate Spanish spy movie anyway.)
