The road to Tunisia

Hi, everyone !
Some pics and some words about the trip Latvia – Tunisia in may last year.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
English is not my native language, so excuse me...

We started from Daugavpils (Latvia). 30.04.2008 .
I – on Aprilia Pegaso 650
Evgeny – on Aprilia Futura 1000 (he drove until Genova)
---------------------------



Will be the rain in Lithuania?





The dinner in the forest in Poland.





We look at Warsaw, and Polish police acquainted with us...





Wroclaw:







Beautiful Prague:







Jazz on the Karlov bridge :





The soul song.




Tired man:





Oldtimer Skoda:





You lose about 30% of money, if exchange little cash in Prague.





Munich, Marienplatz.










How many of the wines made on this press ?







Austrian-Swiss border.







Little-little country - Lichtenshtein.





And little-little vineyard.





Swiss village.





The road across San Bernandino pass is closed – the snow and the ice on the road.







+17 °C !



To be continued...

Hi !
Thanks for the comments.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The next country in our trip (the eighth) is Italy.

Milano,
square Piazza Duomo.
The largest Gothic cathedral in the world, its height reaches 180 meters.





Italy's King Vittorio Emanuele II, finally freed from the foreign yoke of Milan in 1859




Bin Laden is living in Milan






About 2500km of the road are over .Sleeping under this aroma tree,



and in the morning we are in the port of Genoa



To Tunisia? In this direction...
It’s not easy to find the ticket office and the required terminal in the port of Genoa!





All right with the ticket and we are going to get acquainted with the city.
Cabriobus or buscabrio ?




Africa is not far away:




In the Maritime Museum:










The ferry arrived on time.




Not forgotten nothing?




After 5 days we met with him in Douz:




Mediterranean sea:








Not fast, but strictly for south:



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some pics of Evgeny relax in the camping near Genova.
Ligurian sea:










--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To be continue...

Hi!


Special for Nugget


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The ferry came in Tunisia after 24 h.
Three more hours and I was able to enter the country-
it turned out, I need a visa.






Sun in the south turns off quickly,and I came to Korbous after 70km driving in the night



Korbous is the little resort with hot waterfall






Beautiful sea in the morning,












but not always purely near the road.

The structures typical for the village are created by digging a large pit in the ground.
Around the perimeter of this pit artificial caves are then dug to be used as rooms, with
some homes comprised of multiple pits, connected by trench-like passageways.” /Wikipedia/














The hotel Matmata in the troglodyte city.

Here's to you. Take care and keep writing. This is one of those that makes you yearn to be anywhere but where you are.
