The Mediterranean

My first trip outside Europe was in Tunisia in May 1999.
I spent one week there: El Hana Beach Hotel in Sousse, a one-day trip in Carthage, Tunis and Sidi Bou Said, plus a two-day trip in the desert.
It was a wonderful journey and made me take the first step to become a globe-trotter.

The modern city

Sousse has actually 3 parts: the old city center (the Medina), the beach with hotels and the (modern) city outside the Medina. This latter one is worth visiting, too.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Easy, tourist-friendly, the most liberal Arab country, beautiful landscape
  • Cons:The sea is not nice and clear enough
  • In a nutshell:It's a good start to discover either Arabia or Africa
  • Last visit to Sousse: May 1999
