After the success of Monmouth becoming the 1st Wikipedia town in the United kingdom, Gibraltar is to become the 1st Wikipedia city. GibraltapediA is aiming high. It will be the first time a whole city has been embraced in this way.
This means that there will be Wikipedia pages describing all the different tourist attraction and places of interest around the rock.
This will be fantastic for Gibraltar. Visitors to the rock will be able to use their mobile devices such as iPhones, smart phones and iPads to look up all the historical facts regarding the places they are seeing in their own native language.
QrPedia codes will be used to enable this. The QrPedia codes sense the language that your mobile devices are set to.
All landmarks and places of interest, for example St Michael’s Cave, will have a Qr code for you to scan and obtain all the relevant information regarding its history.
Absolutely amazing news for Gibraltar that is said to receive anything from 6 million to 9.5 million visitors a year.
Gibraltar is such a historical place that these Qr codes will be invaluable for visitors wanting to gain knowledge without going on an official tour. They will be able to learn so much simply by using their phone!

Gibraltar Good Food Guide
CANNON BAR AND RESTAURANT
After spending a lovely morning wandering around Gibraltar’s bustling array of
duty free shops, Dean and I felt a little bit peckish and stumbled across a delightful
little pub just off main street.
The Cannon Bar and Restaurant is tucked away up a shady lane off Mainstreet.
It had been a very hot day and we chose to sit in a shaded outside table.
It is a typical English style pub inside. The bar propped up by a couple of locals
watching football on the television.
I asked for a couple of menus and went to wash my hands.
The toilet area was clean enough.
After a couple of minutes a waiter came to take our order. He was polite and courteous.
We both decided to eat a small ploughman’s lunch, as we were too hot for a heavier meal.
Drinks and food were served quickly and we tucked into a delightful plate of
Cheese, pork pie, pickles, salad and crusty bread and butter.
If I had to criticise anything, I would have liked to have had a few different types
of cheese, rather than just a HUGE chunk of cheddar.
But at £3.95 I feel that we had great value for money.
I would certainly visit the Cannon Bar and Restaurant again.
It is certainly not glamorous but it is an English Pub and serves up exactly what is promises. Looking forward to cooler months when I could order some home cooked choices, but in the extreme heat ploughman’s was
a good choice.
GIBRALTAR MONKEY GUIDE
Motor Yacht Nicky J would make an ideal live-aboard or holiday home in the sun.
Birthed in the lovely port of Marina Bay in Gibraltar, she is close to all the amenities
Gibraltar has to offer.
Fancy running a bed and breakfast in the sun?
Nicky J is ideal for a bed and breakfast business. A couple could easily manage to cater for
Guests and this would go a long way to covering all of the mooring fee costs.
