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™‚
