Gibraltar is a stunning British Overseas Territory situated on the south coast of Spain. It’s over a thousand miles away from England, making it a spectacular tourist destination (and home) to the British.

Home to the Barbary macaques, Gibraltar has some impressive wildlife. These apes live on top of the Rock of Gibraltar, a famous 426-meter-high limestone rock which rises out of the sea. The rock is an incredible tourist attraction.» >

Beauty and Skincare Hacks

  1. When you’re travelling: 

When travelling, I always feel like I forget something in my makeup bag.
