If you are looking for a lovely day trip you can’t go wrong with Tarifa. We have been so many times. Every time we have a new guest over we try to find time to take them to see the sand dunes at Punto Paloma, the amazing white beach at Bolonia and then Tarifa town… Read More Day Tripping!
So my dad has been and gone. A relaxing holiday where he did a LOT of walking, I did join him on several occasions. Not every walk though because normal life has to go on to a degree! We had a few days out in Spain as well, which with the help of our lessons… Read More Catching up…
Hola amigos! Sorry for the absence. I have missed you all. And hasn’t our world altered since my last post. Brexit discussion anyone? Now are we all happy with Theresa May being appointed PM? Are we worried that the border will close and that M&S will hike up their prices to such a degree we… Read More Erm… Hi. Yeah I haven’t died.
This past weekend my best friend came over to stay. She hasn’t been in ages, so even though the weather looked quite grim (it was awful on the Friday and pretty darned nice the rest of the time) we wanted to make the most of it. We hired a car (I say we, neither of… Read More A weekend visit
Our final stop on our trip was Tarifa. We had lunch, saw the beach, wandered the streets and ate cake. You know, the usual kind of afternoon when you are on holiday! Needless to say we had a great time. As we drove into Tarifa Mr BOTR spotted these amazing bits of street art that… Read More Tarifa with Dad
Taken at Confiteria La Tarifena, Tarifa last month. It’s Friday. So it seems only right that I at least look at some cake, even if I am not eating any…. (Summer diet. Yawn.)
Friday the 7th of February, while dad was still firmly in holiday mode, we hired a car and took a little road trip! A very scenic drive up the Costa del Luz. We took in Tarifa, always good for a pit stop and stroll. Most of the shops were closed (we got there during siesta)… Read More Punta Paloma – Tarifa – Spain
We have visited Tarifa several times now and it is only on this last visit have we managed to gain access to the castle! At €2 per adult to enter, this isn’t a place to be missed. More fool me for leaving it so long! The building has been there forever I want to say… Read More Tarifa Castle – Tarifa – Spain
Our visit to Tarifa this week. One of the nicest beaches you can visit.
Last time we visited Tarifa is was in full holiday, surfer mode. Not so much last weekend. We got sand blasted, last time we went it was so foggy. You couldn’t more than a few metres, this time the wind was so strong the three of us linked arms to try and stop us getting… Read More Tarifa, Spain
We hired a car and went for a drive along the coast. We have both heard so much about Tarifa, and all of it good. The weather let us down a little bit. Well not really, but the wind and mist whipped up a sandstorm right at the tip of Tarifa. I have never experienced… Read More Tarifa – Spain
