Travel to Tunisia – Episode 132

categories: africa travel

The Amateur Traveler talks to Hoylen about a recent trip to Tunisia. Hear about the Berber and Carthaginian ruins, the medina, and the dessert landscapes. Hoylen, who is a big Star Wars fan, was drawn to Tunisia by its connection with that series of movies and visited some of the locations used to film Star Wars.

It’s matt from myspace. how’s everything. I like this page better than your myspace one. Do you mind if I link it on my new travel site?




It is always a pleasure to be linked to.

I would like to make a small correction re visas … they are NOT required by citizens of the US, the EU, the UK or Canada … Australians and South Africans, who DO require a visa, can obtain it, like the podcast says, on entry. However, according to the Tunisian tourist office in London, foreign currency IS accepted (I did ask … my wife has an Australian passport!). You can, if you need it, get a visa in advance, but it’s a rather prolix and tedious performance!

I’m so glad I found this podcast. I don’t have the budget to travel to the far corners of the earth, but I love listening about them. This was a really great episode as well, but probably because I’m a big Star Wars geek. πŸ™‚
