African Adventures ~ Tunisia

Travel

This summer, I went to Tunisia with my family and had the most incredible culture shock I’d ever had in my life! In the past, I’d never ventured out of Europe as my family owns a touring caravan so we couldn’t go very far. This year we decided to ditch the caravan and discover a new country on our own, Tunisia. As this was my first experience on a plane, I was pretty nervous but I was actually an okay flyer! However, I did get Salmonella food poisoning from some dodgy chicken on the first night in the hotel so I was bed-ridden for a week. When I managed to escape the hotel, we visited Friguia Park (pictured above) where I fed a giraffe from my mouth, rode camels and had a 5 course meal complete with African tribes dancing/singing.

Later in the week, we went on a Catamaran off of  Port El Kantaoui where we saw dolphins in the Mediterranean Sea. After this, we went into the town at night which was truly terrifying for a Brit! It’s completely different out there because of the relaxed health and safety laws! I have to admit, I was so scared and wanted to get back onto the coach as soon as possible!

Tunisia is a beautiful place but is completely culturally different from what I am used to here in England. It was a perfect taste of African culture (minus the Salmonella poisoning) and would recommend to anyone going to Sousse to visit Friguia Park as it was the highlight of the trip!
