My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Torremolinos/Algeciras, Spain 2012

"You can't make footprints on the sands of time by sitting on your butt..."

Day 05: 16 Nov 2012

(A clear sight of Gibraltar)

After breakfast the bus drove south towards Morocco via Torremolinos and Algeciras. We stopped for tea break at Los Abades and a last minute souvenirs shopping in Torremolinos.

Torremolinos is an attractive and appealing resort noted for its clean sandy beaches, wide choice of hotels and restaurants flanked by exclusive boutiques and gift shops and variety of entertainment and nightlife activities.

We bought some souvenirs and had hot cappuccino and packed tuna sandwiches to be eaten on the bus. Our journey continued to Algeciras for border clearance. Algeciras is a port city in the south of Spain, and is the largest city on the Bay of Gibraltar. The Port of Algeciras is one of the largest ports in Europe and in the world in three categories: container, cargo and transshipment.

From the Port of Algeciras, Tangiers is just a short ferry ride away and the gateway to the rest of Morocco. High speed ferries travel almost every hour, year round and take around 30 minutes to cross the Streets of Gibraltar. At 1600 we took one of the slower ferries that are a little cheaper. The ferry ride to Tangiers Med Port in Morocco was 1 1/2 hours and border clearance in Moroccan side was smooth, although a little unorganized.

We were met by our Moroccan tour guide and the 40-seater bus took us for dinner at one hotel restaurant, quite a distance away from our hotel. Later, we checked in for the night in Ibis Hotel situated in the suburb of Tangiers.
