Djerba Tunisia, Africa
Will and I spent an incredible week at Djerba Tunisia. We wanted to spend some time on the beach and Africa is just a 2 hour flight away from Lyon. It was both our first time in Africa and in an Arabic speaking country. Djerba is the small island we stayed in, but we also spent some time in other parts of Tunisia as well. (More details coming in my blog post - part 2) French is the second language in Tunisia, so that definitely made it easier for us to read signs and communicate. Also, multiple Star Wars scenes were shot in Djerba and other parts of Tunisia, which is super cool!
We spent time with camels, seeing dolphins swimming in the sea, reading and relaxing on the beach, and enjoying time in the sun.
Hugging and Feeding Camels
There were constantly many camels walking along the beach... This nice man let us hang out with this family of camels. I got to feed a milk bottle to the baby and we both gave the dad some snuggles and hugs.
95% of our time was spent on the beach... swimming, sleeping & eating. Exactly what we wanted this trip to be. We called it our "Honeymoon Part 2" but it was super similiar to our time in Mexico.
Jet Ski's & Dolphins
We had so much fun jet skiing! It was my first time and we had a blast. We drove about 20-30 minutes into the sea and ended up so far out that we couldn't see land... Terrifying and amazing all at the same time. We ended up seeing multiple dolphins and even had one swimming under our jet ski for 10-15 seconds. It was incredible! (Check out my video below for clips with the dolphins)
Part 2 of our trip is coming in a few days... For now, here's a 3 minute video of our entire week. Enjoy!
