Europe - Tunesia March 2013

Hi everyone,
i'm planning my first motorbike trip into the desert.
I will start from germany down to genua to take the ferry to tunesia.
Plan is to go to kasr ghilane and have 2 or 3 days in the desert.
anyone is welcome to join, desert experience might be a benefit as i don't have any experience.

"Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation made on February 7, with the recommendations of a waiver to travel as tourists to Tunisia, because there is no peace."

D.Sanchez, you carefully study the situation, may be not to go to Tunisia?

We just came back from Tunisia and although we were in the 'Rally bubble' we didnt see any trouble and the people were mostly very friendly. I guess you might want to keep away from the Algerian border and the deep south of Tunisia...

Not at the deep south,but I want to visit :
Ksar Ghilane,Matmata,Douz,Tozeur, Nefta and Metlaoui for a route at
oases Tamerza,Mides and Chebika (i think about 10 Km from the Algerian borders).
Have you heard something? (if the region is dangerus)...

Tnx!

Douz and Nefta were absolutely fine. We sat out at cafes in Douz eating and everyone was very nice. Near the Algerian border there were military vehicles but again I didnt see anything worrying. Tunisia is in a mild state of revolution which is just worth being aware of I spose but as I say it was all totally fine for us. I felt very safe there the whole time.
