If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to maximize your adventures by looping in every last stop on any trip you take. Wanderful women want the most bang for our buck, yet European adventurers often overlook opportunities to the continent’s south.
Just a two hour flight across the Mediterranean, one often forgotten spot that I recently had the opportunity to visit was Tunis, Tunisia.
You likely know Tunisia as the country where the Arab Spring began in the town of Sidi Bouzid in December of 2010. Nearly six years after the revolution, Tunis is on the rebound and boasts reemerging artistic, cultural, and innovation scenes as it navigates its new democratic path ahead.
And the best part? Flights are available for just about $250 USD round trip on Air France or Tunisair on direct routes from Charles De Gaulle to Tunis-Carthage International Airport, as well as other major European cities. In my case, I had my morning coffee in Frankfurt and was ready for couscous in Tunis by lunch.
