Ancient. Fascinating. Vibrant. Charming. Tunisia is a gem as a travel destination, a country that has had many lives since antiquity. I spent 8 days combining walks on sunning beaches then I had a day in the cosmopolitan capital city, Tunis. For bargain hunters there are many offers hotel and flights included, for the independent adventurer there is something on offer all budgets. On this occasion there was a really affordable all-inclusive package offered online so I took a chance. It was well worth it. I plan on going back to explore more.
A Mediterranean climate, Tunisia does not really have bad weather, although showers and clouds can be expected in the winter months, the average temperature while I was there in November was 18 degrees, peaking at 27. I managed to swim a few times over the week, the water was refreshing.
It was not challenging getting around; taxis, mini bus, and trains were reliable and readily available for short and long distance journeys.
There is a security alert for the country, travelers should be vigilant, but I did not have a problem or felt a threat. Tunisians are hospitable and welcome tourists with open arms. I recommend Tunisia.
Tunisia Part 2 coming soon.
