... League, and the African Union. Tunisia has established close relations with France in particular, through economic cooperation, industrial modernization, and privatisation programs. In 2011 a revolution resulted in the overthrow of autocratic President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and the first free elections in the country were held. Since then Tunisia has been consolidating its young democracy. Tonight we turn our clocks forward one ...
... ambient light, the depth of the skies was stunning. And no mosquitos to ruin the experience! 3- As you have maybe noticed, this app allows only a single pin per posting which has probably been confusing when I've talked about many places in one post. Sorry about that. I tried to add a few more pins the other day when I was online with free Wi-fi in Tunisia, but since I needed dates as well as place names to do that and didn't have ...
... one side. They took me back to my Art History days in college. After an all downhill walk back to the ship, we set sail at 4:00 PM, which gave us wonderful daylight views of the harbor. Saturday we were back in Africa, in La Goulette, which is the port city for Tunis. We have no pictures from this tour because I discovered I had left the camera battery on charge back in the cabin! Oops! Our tour took us to the city of Carthage which is now an affluent suburb of Tunis. It ...
Not the right vibe to go off touring we decided. Another bombing yesterday by Bouta Haram (or whatever they call themselves). Oh how difficult to hang out by the pool again with nachos, tacos, chicken and the cocktails! Took the photos off the ...
... spell had meant that we left Cornwall with plenty of time before the flight, in case of accidents on the road. Other airports around the country had either cancelled flights or delayed ones. Ours seemed to be ok and on time. Once we'd checked in, we sat in the departure lounge watching the breaking news story that Whitney Housten had died.
Despite the ice our flight left on time at around 5:45am. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Yasmine Beach Resort Hammamet
I cannot understand why everyone is writing such bad reviews about the yasmine beach hotel - maybe it has been done up or changed hands since 2004 when the other reviews seem to have been written.
My wife and I booked this Hotel just before the bad reviews started to appear - Expedia would not let us change Hotels, and they turned out to be absolutely right!! Hotel high points - spotless room with balcony & sea view, superb food - well presented and lots of choice. Reception, cleaning staff and cooks cheerful and friendly, waiters less so - seemed to be more interested in chatting up the young ladies, and did seem to pay more attention to the German guests (possibly better tippers than us Brits !!)
Having read the previous reviews I was desperate to change our choice of hotel in Tunisia. All I can say is that these people must be professional moaners and I'm really pleased that we didn't.
We have just returned form this hotel and I must say before we went we were really not looking forward to the hoiday at all having read the previous reviews but can honestly say that we had a really good time. The hotel is not the finest looking building but this is comparison to all the new hotels springing up in the resort and its interior is done in areas with trailing plants and a cave grotto. The hotel is, however, having new carpets and touching up the paint work - none of this disrupted our stay. The food was excellent having a wide variety to suit all tastes. The staff were pleasant and friendly and couldn't do enough for us.
Having read the negative reviews of the Hotel in this website just prior to departure, I attempted to change our hotel booking. Fortunately I was too late to do this as we did not have any of the problems listed in the accompanying reviews.
Waste of money
Had the worst week of my life at this resort! They took two hours to check us in & belongings were stolen from my room on the first morning there!
The Hotel is dark, dingy and damp smelling.
The people on reception can not speak english and none of the entertainment or facilities are in english.
The Food is inediable to say the least. We had to pay extra to move to a four star hotel from this suposed five star establishment!!!
Where to start? We were sold this holiday as a 5 star hotel by Med Hotels. We had the misfortune to spend two weeks looking for the stars - I think we may have found one!
Me, the wife and 3 kids just got back from this hotel on a two week break and met some friends who had spent two weeks prior to us who left the day after we arrived and boy did we have some problems.
