great expectations (rose)

Wednesday, 9 Jun 2010 | Views [738] | Comments [2]

We intended to spend just three weeks here, but we’ve now been exploring Tunisia’s delights for almost seven. This week we bid a sorry farewell to this amazing country and the new friends we have made here, and continue our journey eastwards: the long-... Read more >

getting a visa for libya (huw)

Wednesday, 9 Jun 2010 | Views [778] | Comments [1]

It was complex. It was taxing. It took a while. And in the end it has become a clear lesson in "be careful what you wish for...." Got the stamp, which of course takes up a whole egotistical page. It's a transit visa, which we wanted, because ... Read more >

The tarmac ends abruptly a few kilometres south of Douz, the road continues, but there is a clear line when it turns from black-top to dirt track. From here to Ksar Ghilane, about 150 kilometres drive to the south east, the surface changes many more ... Read more >

are you taking the piste? (rose)

Wednesday, 2 Jun 2010 | Views [620] | Comments [1]

We met Mirko and Ulrike in Douz, as we drove round town looking for the famous Desert Camping Club. They were lost too. Despite this, we all decided a few days later to head south-east together, across the desert and the dunes to the oasis of Ksar Ghilane.... Read more >

heading inland (rose)

Wednesday, 2 Jun 2010 | Views [451]

It always feels against my instincts to head away from water, but on Tuesday 25 May, we turned our backs on the Tunisian coastline we'd been gently hugging for a few weeks, driving steadily westwards from Gabes, along the desolate, arid road, scattered ... Read more >

rock the kasbah (rose)

Wednesday, 2 Jun 2010 | Views [609]

Sorry. This is a bit of a ‘we went here and did this, then we went here and did that’ account, exactly what we wanted to avoid. But we've got a lot of catching up to do. Here is what got up to as we meandered our way down the Tunisian coast. ... Read more >

t-shirts (rose)

Thursday, 27 May 2010 | Views [623]

I've never been a fan of slogan t-shirts but in the past week, three have caught my eye which I thought I'd share with you: The first was bright pink and worn by a smooth-looking dude on a moped in Gabes on the east coast. I noticed him mainly because ... Read more >

snapshop: monday morning (rose)

Tuesday, 25 May 2010 | Views [584]

Stealing a moment this morning to take stock. I’m sitting just outside our beloved bus amidst palms under the hot sun. It is 8.30am on Monday morning. With no time difference between here and the UK, it is easy – and weird – to picture what most ... Read more >

sea life? (huw)

Friday, 21 May 2010 | Views [848]

I was nine years old and I stood on the rocks at the edge of the sea a little way out of Bugibba. It was a fishing village then, now I understand, like most of Malta, it's a tourist town. I had a new mask and snorkel on my face and flippers on my feet.... Read more >

two months to the day (rose and huw)

Wednesday, 12 May 2010 | Views [655] | Comments [4]

Rose: Two months ago today our overnight ferry from Harwich docked in Holland. It feels like yesterday and years ago all at once. The road has been very winding if not all that long so far. There've been ups and downs along the road, as we knew there ... Read more >

reasons to be cheerful (rose)

Wednesday, 12 May 2010 | Views [687] | Comments [2]

1. We bought six eggs last week and every one had a double yolk. 2. At the Borj Cedria scout camp, four great Dutch blokes joined us, driving from Nijmegen to Cape Town in a LR Defender and a Nissan Patrol in three months. This is their ... Read more >

under african skies (rose)

Thursday, 6 May 2010 | Views [779]

Where to begin? We've been in Tunisia for two weeks now and it has totally blown me away. Here's why:   You can be a visitor not a tourist. Tunisia relies on tourism, and their model is to create a Zone Touristique at certain ... Read more >

one-oh-one-uh-oh (rose)

Monday, 3 May 2010 | Views [561]

My friend Al and I have a thing about 11:11. I'm sure we're not the only ones. It's not true of course but sometimes it seems every time I look at a clock it's 11:11, either am or pm. Recently, funny things have been happening with other numbers.... Read more >

nous sommes en afrique! (rose and huw)

Thursday, 22 Apr 2010 | Views [619] | Comments [3]

Lots to catch up on but we wanted to send a quick up-to-date update to let you know we made it safely to the other side of the Med. Whilst the rest of the world is having travel troubles (thinking of all our friends currently stuck in far flung exotic ... Read more >
