Tarifa, Spain. The sign at the edge of the beach says: “the southest town in Europe.”
The way the wind whips my hair and pushes the crashing surf, it definitely seems like a dramatic point on the continent.
This little beach town is the place where the Atlantic Ocean crashes into the Mediterranean, and where the narrow Strait of Gibraltar carries people from Europe to Africa.
My favorite part about Tarifa, other than the quiet beaches? Being able to see Africa across the water. Shortly after this photo was taken, I boarded the ferry to Tangier, which would lead me to the land of one-thousand welcomes and the marvelous colors of Chefchaouen.
