    And now.. something completely..

    March 8, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    different.

    Someway I don't find my spot in Tunisia.
    However the people are nice.
    We were stoped on the road by those who has seen us on Facebook.
    As we park, there is always a few who comes and asks for pictures and selfies.
    But still.. Someway it is not Algeria.
    Am I homesick? ;)
    Today we travelled from Tabarka to Bizerte.
    And tomorrow we are going to start fresh.
    A new country, a new beginning, although we will leave the 12th.
    For the corona capital of Europe; Italy.
    But first...
    ..
    Lets enjoy Tunisia!

    And .. what now..???

    March 9, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Today we discovered Bizerte.
    We visited the medina, the old Harbor and the city.
    But now...there is a dark cloud..
    The only reason we travelled to Tunisia is the boat from Tunis to Italy, to continue our journey.
    But just an hour ago the news was announced that all of Italy is on lockdown.
    So we don't know if we are able to sail, nor if we could embark or even are allowed to travel through Italy..
    We are in doubt, and do not know how we deal with this.
    We could:

    1) sail anyway to Italy, and we will see.
    2) stay (much) longer in Tunisia.
    3) Sail to Marseille, but that would mean the end of the roadtrip..

    Anybody?

    (And no, overland to Egypt is not possible, nor going back to Algeria...)

    Hé dappere reizigers. Ik weet niet in hoeverre jullie op de hoogte zijn maar het ziet er naar uit dat heel Italië plat gaat. Er mag alleen met zeer strikte toestemming gereisd worden. Dat wordt dus een hele grote hobbel. Ik denk inderdaad dat je alleen optie 2 en 3 overhoud als keuze. Maar wil je en kan je zo lang in Tunesië blijven? En zijn er qua ferries nog andere opties zoals Griekenland of Bulgarije? Dan heb je de kwestie Turkije- Syrië nog waardoor de grens van Griekenland ook nagenoeg op slot zit vanwege de toename vluchtelingen. Als ik zelf de keuze moest maken zou ik voor Marseille gaan. Dat hoeft geen einde te zijn als je Spanje Portugal op het gemak doet. Wel heel anders maar het zijn lastige tijden nu helaas. Ik wens jullie heel veel moed toe met het maken van een keuze. Heb er alle vertrouwen in dat dat goed komt. Ondanks deze stress ook heel veel plezier samen en goede reis.

    29 unplanned days...

    March 11, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Today it became obvious.
    Traveling to Italy makes no sence at all.
    Not only due to the travel restrictions, but also our plan was to just cros the country and sail to Albania.
    And Albania has closed its border for travel from Italy.
    Game over.
    So. We rebooked our sail for the 9th of April.
    That means 29 days in Tunisia which were not planned.
    What are we going to do?
    Lieske still has a small problem with her prop shaft, so we need to spare her. A bit...
    ..
    Today Seif came to visit us in Tunis, and we just had a nice walk around. What else ? ;)
    We still did not visit Carthago.
    Maybe tomorrow?
    29 days left anyway.. ;)

    Nabeul

    March 13, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    As we are counting time, we did almost nothing today.
    Had a long sleep, did some change in the car storage organisation and enjoyed being lazy.
    Went into the city late afternoon, and had a snack for diner.
    We think of staying here for another night , as the place we are is quite nice and safe.
    Lieske sleeps under a few old olive trees, and so do we..
    No hurry. So...No worry.
    ..
    Even in pictures we are lazy.
    Sorry!

    Joining in.

    March 15, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We are picked up!
    What a fun is this. Camping together with some youth from Germany and the Netherlands.
    Feeling old. But very accepted.
    Glad we found this wild bunch. Looks like we go and discover Tunisia with the lot.
    I still have to think at our friends in Algeria.

    Madness of fear.

    March 16, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Today we left the beautiful spot on the mountain of Zaghouan.
    The decent was a bit tricky, but we managed.
    Poor Lieske..
    ..
    We visited or better, tried to visit the Hamam in Zriba. But as we arrived it was all closed due to the Corona.
    So we decided to visit the mountain village of Zriba.
    Poor Lieske ...again..
    A deserted town. Only a few inhabitants and lots of ruins. But.. it was worth a visit.
    We split up.
    Patrick and Lisa, the German couple had business to attend, and wanted to go ahead to Kairouan. We would follow later these days.
    So we, Maarten en Janne in their Landcruiser and we in our old lady cruised around.
    Bargou it was going to be. Because of the tales of a Shepard...
    But there was not much to see. And on the quest of a place to sleep, we found a lake.
    Looked nice, but soon, the village came to look at the strangers, and the wind was so hard, it would be insane to stay.
    So we took of again.
    Asked serval farmers, but all sent us away.
    No hospitality there.
    (Oh Algeria...)
    Anyway. In the end, time was running out, we parked at a meadow next to the main road.
    But again, we were sent away. Busy looking people, on their phones..
    A few miles up, a nice patch. We parked, and started coocking. But could not finish. A car, a motorcycle and three man.
    Interedit! Go!
    After a long discussion, we were taken to a distant hotelparking. But soon as we arrived, security did not want us there.
    We refused to go.
    Long story short, as things might get out of hand, we agreed to go home with one of the guys.
    So.. there we are.
    Poor Lieske, again she had to struggle up a steep mountain.
    And it feels like the first gear problem is getting worse. Anyway.
    We are now here. At the parents home of a unknown guy, who, in the end is friendly, so are his parents.
    We finished our meal. And are offered a room in their house which we friendly declined.
    Not the way we dealt with in Algeria, but it just feels a bit strange here.
    So. Tonight in our car, and hopefully tomorrow we just have a normal day. But I am afraid it will not be as we think.
    Tunisia is in the fear of corona, and foreigners are the ones who brought this to them.
    Fear rules the heart.

    Day 50.

    March 14, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    And it was again a lazy day.
    Tunisia starts to implement restrictions on travel and openings hours in cafe and bars.
    So the corona measures has reached Afrika.
    We met some nice young travellers from the Netherlands and Germany.
    As the situation in this village is changing, our fellow travellers left yesterday.
    Tonight I got a what'sapp to join them. So, we try.
    As for now. We are waiting on a quite bad road, at the park national Djebel Zaghouat.

    Alea iacta est....

    March 10, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Today we met Seif and his family in a town called Utica.
    Who knew it existed? .. might be the same as Koewacht. But with a small difference. Utica is one of the oldest Phoenician cities of North Africa.
    Koewacht does not even come near...
    But anyway, again it was the friend from a friend who told a friend that we were on our way through Tunisia. And so we landed on this piece of history.
    I am in doubt which I liked more. Seif and his family and the wonderful lunch his mom made for us...or the remains of the old city.
    I think I will choose the first. As the stones could not cook, speak and laugh!..
    ..
    After the lunch we took of to Tunis.
    The capital of Tunisia.
    I must say.. traffic was again an experience. Especially as Mr Google sent us into small streets with market stalls, and lots of people...
    ..
    But we made it to the hotel, what we had booked for our visa for Algeria.
    As the plan was, to leave the 12th to Salerno, Italy.
    But Italy is now on Lockdown..

    It looks like the boat will sail. But we are afraid we will not be on it.. As there ia a chance that we are not able to move from the harbour or have to stay in a hotel as long as the lockdown of Italy is effected.
    And even if we are allowed to travel, we might get stuck in Bari or Albania, because they want us to get in quarantine..
    So..
    ..
    We decided that we stay in Tunisia, and try to discover this country, which we did not intended to visit longer than 4 days..
    It might gone be now more than three weeks..
    ..
    Tomorrow we try to visit the Dutch Embassy and check what they know.
    But on this moment,
    ...
    It's decided.

    La Goulette

    July 25, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    We payed our debt to the Tunisian government.
    And are now waiting to board the vessel "Splendid" who will take us from Africa to Europe. A sail of 32 hours.

    It's a short footprint as any minute now the embarking can start.

    So all the fear..
    ..
    It's just all about money.

    Its to hot to travel...

    July 25, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    We cleared our room.
    Put the luggage in Lieske on a disorganised way. Think we will have time enough to sort it out as we will be waiting for the gates of the port to be opened..
    Nervous as hell.
    Drinking another bottle of water and looking to find the courage to go.
    It's so hot outside, Lieske is an oven.
    We probably have to spent more than 6 hours waiting in the harbour before the tickets can be exchanged for boardigpasses .
    The most fear is for the customs. How will they react on our invalid "permit de conduire" and the double stamps in our passport.
    How high will the fine be we will have to pay before we are allowed to leave Africa.
    I guess it will be around 10hours from now...until we know.

    Take a deep breath..
    And enjoy the ride!
