Well, I made it away for a weekend break with my brother and brother-in-law to Tarifa, Spain. Thanks so much for all your help on how to get there and giving me the Spanish for Ibuprofen (luckily I didn’t need it!).
Tarifa is a quiet spot over the coast from North Africa, about 25 mins from Gibraltar. Very unspoiled and very Spanish, but the main feature - very windy! That’s why it's the location for the world kitesurfing championships this year.
The day we started, the winds were incredibly strong so that even flying the smallest kite was enough to lift me clean off the beach and have me flying through the air. Day two saw me wallowing about in the water trying to co-ordinate feet, board, kite and strings… without much success it has to said!
Unfortunately the wind dropped so the last day was spent waiting on the beach, trying a few local drinks and trying not to get too burnt!
I’m off air next week at home building a chicken run and shed so I’ll let you know how I get on… such a varied life!
Have a nice weekend
