When you first see the Rock of Gibraltar, whether it is from the air, from the sea or from either the Costa del Sol or the western end of the Bay, it is its impressive stature, towering isolated above the surrounding countryside, that causes the greatest impact. It has had this effect on people for many thousands of years. Gibraltar is a beacon which signals the position of the Strait of Gibraltar, the narrow neck which separates Europe from Africa and provides the only link between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. This beacon which attracted the early inhabitants had many advantages as a home.

Easter Spring might not quite be in the air for this year's Easter time in Sweden but there's lots of fun to be had regardless. It's all about witches, egg hunts, colourful feathers and salmon. Crime Fiction - West Sweden Murder and mystery are in the air on the west coast of Sweden, at least in the books of Swedish crime writers Camilla Läckberg, Åke Edwardsson and Ann Rosman.
