Tunisian Holiday

We have just come back from our first holiday in 3 years. We decided to try Tunisia as we had never been there. Of course we were a little worried after the recent events (see this post) but we went ahead anyway and glad we did.

The people are very friendly.  Odd to see armed police on the streets but strangely comforting too.  I enjoyed bartering at the medina and shops, and walking around the resort. I call it a 'resort' but it is a little more limited than perhaps we are used to in Europe. Great to see that cultural difference though.

I did a review on TripAdvisor about the hotel and you can read all about it here.  Here are a few pictures from our time there.
