Tarifa

It has to be said I love Tarifa. I won't step foot in the sea here but I will totally immerse my body in the water in Tarifa, where the Atlantic meets the mediteranean sea. There is a very different feel on the Costa de la Luz, vast, raw and most definitely more exposed to the elements predominantly the wind. They say that there is a high suicide rate in Tarifa. People go mad in the end due to the wind. My girls love the wind there as they can do bodyboarding there as the waves are so big. Today the sky was full of the kites attached to the surfers. There were literally hundreds. I'm not sure I could live in Tarfa. It must get bleak during the winter especially during the rainy period.
