Tunisia trip: overview

I just got back from my honeymoon in Tunisia. The trip was really great, here a little more about it.

We stayed in Sousse:

...in a hotel as fancy as this:

...with a pool with slides as cool as this:

The shopping in Sousse and chilling at the hotel sums up what we did in a vast majority of our time.

We also did a bit of sightseeing, which included the Bardo National Museum in Tunis:


(do follow the Wikipedia link, as I'd have to post at least two dozens of images to give you the whole picture of this site) and the lovely town of Sidi Bou Said:

Another cool thing we did was driving quads in Port El Kantaoui - they have really great tracks between hills and olive trees (the desert is about 600 km to the south from there), totally separated from the streets. For 30 Tunisian Dinars (about 20 USD), we got an almost 2-hour ride with a really cool guide - absolutely worth checking out.

Okay, finally, the food. Basically, if you go to a country this far, you're not accustomed to the local bacteria, so you're really at risk of food poisoning - and that's what happend to us the one and only time we stuck our noses out of the hotel. So, our travel agencies only book all-inclusive trips and in our hotel, we were absolutely at no loss not eating out. The food was really great and there were many dishes to choose from: some "international", some local, but all really great. The best thing was the meat, grilled just before serving, by this very friendly staff:

Okay, that's all for now, I will post a few more specific posts on some specific subjects (for example, how I survibed haggling....not!)
