Tarifa, bubbles, octopus and home made love meals.

Tarifa, Spain

Our orignal trip to Tarifa was only supposed to be three days long. However, because Chad lost his jacket and camera and other things in Malaga, we decided to stay a bit longer on the hopes of somone in Malaga finding it. As luck would have it Don Flash, our new friend from S. Africa\Aus. was able to find it!!! Don made the trip down to Tarifa in a few days so we decided to stay longer. Coming into Tarifa by bus was amazing, it is the southernmost point in Europe and you can see Africa from the beach, it is only 13 Miles away. There are ferries that go to Africa/Tangier every couple of hours and it only takes 35min. As you drive into Tarifa you can see hundreds of wind mills lining the hills surrounding the city.

Our whole time here was spent diving, we really didn´t do much else, it´s been nice after sight seeing so much over the last 3 weeks to really slow down and just go with the flow.

We did our diving lessons at the Yellow Submarine. Thanks Dave, Laura, Mike, Stacy, Samir, Sarah and Ananth for the diving!! Diving was great! Our instructor Sven was amazing! Knowledgeable, super nice, calm and very patient! He helped us to be comfortable diving in a pretty but difficult area, with cold temperatures and rough currents. The temp of the water was around 15C so we wore the works:
a 2.5mm vest, full wet suit, gloves, boots, hood and an ice vest! Also...peeing in your suit helps quite a bit :)

The last night, we just walked around the city some more, relaxed, and watched the Barcelona / Manchester U game at the hostel, early morning tomorrow as we´re are heading to Portugal! We would like to thank Spain for providing us with some fantastic experiences over the last few weeks! And the letter S and the number 11
