So here it is, Merry Christmas…
Another successful orbit of the sun and navigation of a semi-pandemi year; well done, all!
As we reflect on the last 12 months, I must say we’ve been pretty darn lucky to live in a place like Gibraltar. Although, as the world (hopefully) opens up further, I am sure looking forward to a trip away… where is next on your bucket list? Perhaps our travel writer Pete can tempt you to Malta for a magical wintery getaway…(p. 67).
We’ve attempted to sum up 2021 in photo form for our annual roundup – head over to p. 18 to see if you can spot anyone you know (my favourite part of local magazines). And for our monthly burning question, we asked you: What rule would you make the world follow? Your answers over on p. 8.
As it’s Christmastime, we have some particularly festive features for you: fashionista Julia once again knocks it out of the park with her partywear suggestions (p. 82), and beauty guru Alex helps us out with our Christmas shopping with the ultimate beauty gift list (p. 70).
Ever wondered, as you tuck into your turkey and tatties, what dishes other people around the world are feasting on? Well wonder no more, as Gianna explores various yuletide meal traditions (p. 43).
The holidays aren’t always so merry for some people; luckily, Anne Marie has 3 solid tips on how to tackle the trials and tribulations of this tricky time of year (p. 41).
And no issue would be complete without our exclusive interviews. This month, we corner the charming Lord Jeffrey Archer ahead of his engaging talk at Gibraltar Literature Week (p. 46), interview one of the Rock’s own guardian angels, Nicole Jones, on her diligent work at the EV Foundation (p. 32), and grill Nico Fitzgerald on his time in the MasterChef kitchen (p. 29).
See you in 2022!
