Home > North Africa, Tunisia > OUT OF AFRICA


When I thought of Northern Africa, I expected desert and stifling heat.  What we found is a coastline of world class beaches, resorts and quaint towns dominated by Medinas (old walled cities) and Ribats (forts). 

The Tunisian people have been very welcoming.  They are industrious and hard working. 

Since we are heading west to the Caribbean this winter, it is unlkely that we will return to Tunisia by boat.  But I think a camel trek across the Sahara and camping in a Bedouin tent under the stars may be in our future. 

We’ll soon be passaging to France for Bastille Day, but Tunisia has made a lasting impression.

    Hi all,

    we are adent followers of your blog and we love it…..moreso because its the only blog that so far talks about north africa,something different.

    We,my partner and i, are currently in catania ,sicily with an ultimate goal of sailing to morroco,through tunisia and algeria.so by your writtings,i understand tunisai is possible,algeria???

    we also noticed you would like to get a catamaran and would gladly help with any questions in that regard since our boat is a sailing catamaran……

    How are the officials in Tunisia,are you heading to Algeria or met any boats out of algeria?……

    Axel and Cathy
