Read the reviews and had a desire to write about Tunisia.I was there twice. First time in Hammamet. years 9-10. ago.EO was before the "Jasmine revolution" in Tunisia and then made a strong impression.The capital was similar to the European city. bordering on the East. Underwhelming food and the ability to design and food and restaurant.Every year I choose a new country and compare with the service of Tunisia. in 2016. in October. flew with friends to Djerba and again wonderful memories.Of course was horrified.what did the revolution with this beautiful country.Although. revolution in any country for good has not resulted.In Djerba there are no such attractions. as in Hammamet and Ministere. but the fond memories remain.Sun suggest to visit the country. and I think. that fly is now in Minister.This country is worth it. a fascinating place to visit for a third time. ...

In Hiking and mountaineering there is a notion of "fanatical goal achievement".
And the main is not a goal, it's a sign opposite to common sense, and the ability to understand in time the need to return.
But to come and die it is for infantile Amateurs.
So the goal is important but not important. ...
