Couldn't help but notice the strong South African accent one of you Croatians have.

Looking forward to more

Good observation
Yes, Ivan is one of the few Croatians who doesnt speak Croatian.

He is half South African half Croatian so thats the reason where the accent come from.

Matmata & Kairouan

Our hotel room in Matmata...


In the morning our friend Mustafa take us on the quik tour arround Matmata...


Star Wars...






View from the "roof"...




Museum...





Tipical Berber house...








 
You must pay your debts or ...


This is the real motorcycle...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5XNaq7B5v8


Next point, Kairouan. Off the road.


Mam and the baby from the distance...


On the road before Kairouan...


You must be very lucky to take out this thing and the tire is still OK...


Kairouan. I dont like big cities. Too much people, too much trafic, too much everything...

Our Hotel...


...and look from the Hotel.


Our big 5 star room...


...with huge bathroom.

 
On the old market...













Lunch...


We are litlle bit tired of the "may friends" who want to show you something, sell you something, find you something....

Tea time...


We find internet point to look when is the ferry from Tunis to Italy...


Breakfast with the local people in the hotel and we are on our way to Tunis...












We come close to Tunis so early, so we decide to go in Yasmine Hammamet. Real Tunis at least?












Do you know how I feel here? Like in the theater. This is not Tunisia, my friends. This is big tourist show. And I dont like it.

Tea time.


We are in Tunis, waiting for the ferry. First on the custom line...


The best cabin on the boat...


Palermo, but not at the time. 5 hours late...


Italia...


Who will eat this later...


Sleeping in Calabria...


In the morning we take the road to Ancona. When we come there in the late afternoon somebody tell us that we dont have ferry for Croatia today. Oh, no! Another day in Italy.


Sunday morning. 1 Celzius. We take our road to San Marino but we didnt come there. We end up with hundreds of motorcycles on some fiesta.


On the mountain somewhere arround Ancona...








Back to Ancona...


On the end we have very nice day in here. But when we come to ferry port we find out there is no ferry today also. We can belive this. Another day in Ancona.


We come on the ground of Italy in Friday and come home four days later. Good organization.
 
... next ... Food and few words about Tunisia ...

Nice pics! We did almost the same tour just 4 months earlier. Never had below 20C then, in the Sahara between Douz and Ksar Ghilane it was about 35C

When I saw this guy in Douz my first thought was he stole my bike later in Tataouine the locals told us that we could even leave the kays on the bikes because there is nobody around who knows how to ride such a big bike...

Cheers, Andy

Great report. Last year I spent one week on my back in the hotelroom in Douz after having had some bad chicken, before transported home. Can hardly remember anything from Tunis and have since felt sick thinking about the place. This report makes me considering going again...nice!

Stunning!

Mr Picoda, I must thank you again for a fantastic read and visual experience

I take it you had some sand riding experience before you took those bikes to the desert? Respect if you did and more respect if you had no idea - awesome!

Some fantastic pics in there - you should write a book. Brilliant stuff thanks for taking the time to entertain me Please ride more often and post it's very enjoyable!

Thanks!

Food in Tunisia...
 
You always know what you will eat here...







Before every meal you get this...oliv oil, olives, some chilli...



First plate - Brick...




Chorba...


Khus Khus...many kind of it...






Beens...nice one...


Tunisia is close to Italy...








Tunisian fast food...


Desert...

 
Traditional tea is very nice. Coffe is to strong for me. Non-alcoholic beer everywhere. Very nice natural juices. Thats what we try.

 
Tunisia in a few words...

Beautiful country. Breathtaking nature. Particularly the southern part (green on the map). North part is also very nice but we like south. Large cities like large cities. People are very friendly and hospitable. We like Tunisia very much. And we will be back.




 
 


Until next time,

Cheers!
