Picture Diary 2: Monastir and Sidi Boo Said

As a continuation to my first Picture Diary blog from a couple of weeks back, I wanted to do a second post with other cities in Tunisia. I was based in Sousse for a month, but did a day trip to Sidi Boo Said and Monastir as well. I always love a good adventure! 

Here we go! 

1. Sidi Boo Said is known as a town full of artists. The area is painted mainly in blue and white. It reminded me of Greece. I loved the cafés, cobblestone streets, and of course, the amazing view of the Mediterranean.

2. View from the café, not too shabby for a work trip

3. I love elaborate doors. Especially turquoise ones.

4. Walking on the cobblestone streets of Sidi Boo Said. It was pretty stunning.

5. There was no Starbucks that I saw while in Tunisia. However, I did come across "Angel Bucks" Café...

6. Le Ribat Monastir, an Islamic fortress, is the oldest ribat built by the Arab conquerors during the Muslim conquest of the Maghreb. It's totally intact and spectacular.

7. Interior view of the Ribat. Fun fact, this landmark appeared in a couple of movies including Jesus of Nazareth and Life of Brian.

9. When you go up all the stairs in the Ribat you overlook the Mediterranean Sea.

10. Tunisian ex president Habib Bourguiba was born in Monastir, and his mansion is still located in the city as a museum. You can see why he never left with these views.

11. The Bourguiba mausoleum is a monumental grave in Monastir, containing the remains of former president Habib Bourguiba, the father of Tunisian independence. Here I am in the large square in front of the site.

Pokète's idea for hidden pocket wearables, was born out of my love for exploring different places and cultures. 

Do you have an interesting trip you want to document in a quick photo diary? I'd love to share it on the blog. 

I hope to hear from you soon to share your travel adventures too. 

xoxo Andy
