Spain 2016

Last week I spent a very relaxing week in Tarifa, Spain, with a couple of friends.

The week consisted of heading to the beach and BBQ-ing at our villa and a couple of day trips to Tarifa and Gibraltar.

We flew to Malaga from Weze with RyanAir and rented a couple of cars to get us around in the area.


Tarifa is also known as kite surfers paradise because there's usually a strong wind.



One of us brought their kites, and we also rented a wind surf board which is a lot harder than it seems.

Tarifa consists of a relatively modern part with many hotels and apartments and an old town with small alleys. From the harbor, you can take the ferry to Morocco.


Close to Tarifa lies Gibraltar, a prominent limestone ridge that is part of England. You'll need a passport to enter the city.



The main attraction in Gibraltar is the cable cart to the top of the ridge, from where you have a great view. There's also a ton of monkeys.

After descending from the ridge, we took the car to the most northern edge of Gibraltar.

I'm on a boat

On most of our bucket lists, one of the things was a deep-sea fishing trip, so we found a boat with a captain and spent the day on the ocean.
