Back In Gibraltar

  • Hits: 2035

Miss International

If I were to sum up my experience, I would describe it as one of the most grueling but incredible experiences I have had to date. Though my photos state otherwise, it has been physically and emotionally exhausting, all contestants were absolutely knackered and were layering on the concealer! For the past three weeks I lost the concept of time and day, all I knew is I was waking up at 5:30am everyday and going to bed at around 12am as we had morning, afternoon and evening activities scheduled.

A Taste of Canadian Life

Miss Gibraltar in Canada

My second day here in Canada has been quite eye opening. I have had the opportunity to meet many different people from different walks of life and visit places that reflect all the different communities in Vancouver.

We visited a native art gallery in the morning. The native people of Canada were the first nations to inhabit the continent and have unfortunately led difficult lives, since Canada and the USA were colonised in the 1700s. The art gallery was fascinating; they explained to us that all of the different animals and symbols are unique to every tribe and they all symbolise different feelings and emotions. We were shown everything from very majestic totem poles to intricate dream catchers.

Miss International - 5 Days In

Miss International - Group Photo

Hi everyone,

It's already been 5 days since I arrived to Okinawa and it feels like I have been here much longer due to the non-stop activities, but I’m loving every minute of it! I am embracing the Japanese culture and it’s becoming natural to me to bow my head when I get to meet the locals when we're out on our trips, arigatou seems to just roll off the tongue and as I’m becoming good friends with miss Japan (my chopsticks technique has definitely improved).

One of my highlights so far has been the press conference, where I was interviewed by a Japanese news station (with a translator of course, I’m not fluent yet!) and then taking a group photo by one of the most historical sites on the island.

Update 2 From Kerri - Leaving Day!

  • Hits: 2230

Miss Gibraltar - Miss International

THE DAY HAS FINALLY ARRIVED - Only a few hours away before I leave to Miss International and surprisingly enough I am feeling quite calm, it still feels a bit surreal that I am actually leaving to go to Japan.

Exactly like the Miss Gibraltar pageant, the day before was absolutely hectic, a lot of running round town doing last minute shopping, fittings, final beauty treatments at The Home of your Beauty - a Body wrap from Janice Hair Salon, collecting my final dress from Dorcas (which am keeping a secret!) and had a educational seminar on Gibraltar delivered by Gail (former Miss Gibraltar) at the Tourist Board. All of this while trying to fight the torrential storm that decided to descend on Gibraltar for the two days where it would have been helpful to have a tiny bit of sunshine, but succeeded to complete all my to do list!

Bittersweet Emotions

Miss Gibraltar in Canada

I am now nearing the end of my trip to Vancouver and the past couple of days have been jam packed with events.

We had the amazing opportunity to meet with a couple of reporters from The Province which is British Columbia’s biggest and most prestigious newspaper. We filmed an interview for their website, took some photos and answered a few questions for their paper. We each explained where we are from, what the purpose of our visit was and what we most liked about Vancouver. I am really looking forward to seeing the outcome so as always I’ll be keeping you posted.

Ocean Village Marina Resort

No central hub for tourists is complete without its own state of the art marina. As one of Gibraltar’s flagship construction projects over the past 5 years, Ocean Village Marina has brought about a change that was being desperately sought by locals who had tired of the same selection of bars, nightclubs and restaurants.

The project was commissioned in 2004 at the site of the former Sheppard’s Marina. Four years later the project was complete. The Ocean Village Marina pamphlet describes the area as ‘more than a marina, Ocean Village is an all-encompassing resort with three iconic residential plazas, executive office facilities, international retail outlets and plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants. Meticulous lighting, an elegant boardwalk, decked piers and over 10,000 decorative trees and plants make for the ideal environment for soaking up the southern Mediterranean lifestyle.’

Queensway Quay

Gibraltar Marina Guide - Queensway QuayQueensway Quay is a luxury marina complex combining residential and commercial units. It has become a gastronomic centre with several long-established and popular restaurants some of which, like Waterfront, have become local institutions.

The marina is separated from the inner harbor by a unique residential development called “The Island” – an exclusive row of 19 townhouses right by the water’s edge each with its own private pool. The marina has 185 berths, including facilities for up to eight 30 metre and two 40 metre vessels.

Gibraltar Apes

Gibraltar Apes – Love them or Hate Them, They're Here To Stay!

St michaels Cave GibraltarWhen you are looking to travel to southern Spain and in particularly Gibraltar, there is nothing that epitomises this tiny part of the English sovereignty more than the Gibraltar apes. Otherwise known as Barbary Macaques or Macaca Sylvanus, they are a strange addition to this eclectic cornerstone of southern Europe and are the only wild primates in Europe. Despite their name, rather curiously they are in fact monkeys and not apes.

No one is totally sure how the Macaques came to be here. Some suggest that they arrived here from their native home in Morocco using a subterranean tunnel underneath the Straights of Gibraltar, although it has to be said that no evidence of this tunnel having existed has ever been found. A more likely theory is that they were brought over from the North African continent by the moors who occupied this part of the peninsular between 711 and 1492.
