TUNISIA

In 2014 we went to Tunisia. We didn’t expect a lot, but actually, this country really offers a lot for the culture lovers. Here are some places we went. We do not own all these pictures, in the time we went to Tunis, we did not had the photography material and skills 🙂 Enjoy reading!

Monastir – Bourghiba Mausoleum

In Monastir, you will find a beautiful monument build by  Habib Bourguiba. Habib Bourguiba was a statesman who served as the country’s leader. He was buried in a mausoleum he had previously built in Monastir.

Go to Port el Kantaoui! This area is full of restaurants and bars, great souvenir shops and you will find fantastic harbour views.  We really loved to hang out here! Don’t be surprised if the people in the shops ask you for really high prices. Always ask for discounts, or you will pay way too much!

Go to the Sahara desert: incredible views for the adventurous one. You can book a day tour or you can hang out more days in the desert.

Go to the Sousse medina: it’s also surrounded by shops, a nice place to hang out! Don’t be surprised if the people in the shops ask you for really high prices. Always ask for discounts, or you will pay way too much!

Go to the Kairouan mosque. Sometimes you will hear people praying through a microphone. It’s nice to hear this sounds through the city. The Kairouan mosque is a famous tourist attraction, and it’s worth the visit. We really love the style of those buildings. You can see it’s build with love!

Tunisia is known as a cheap ‘all in holiday’ for those who want to relax. If you look behind the resorts, you will find beautiful architecture, beautiful streets, and beautiful and friendly people. We met a Tunisian man in a tourist shop, and he brought us at his home. It was so nice to see how Tunisian people live. It’s very different from us (European). This was the ‘highlight’ of our visit and we still talk to him!
