Trouble in Tunisia is a serial blog about time spent from 1996-1999 running a water-sports base on the beach at Port El Kantaoui, near Sousse, and about returning there in 2014 to introduce my sixteen-year old daughter to her blood relatives.
This blog series touches on life for a Westerner in an Islamic country and the freedom of a beach-bum lifestyle. It’s about what happens when someone takes a holiday romance too far.
I’m aiming for the posts to be stand-alone, but it’s probably best to read them in order.
The posts are as follows:
- About this blog (this is what you are reading right now)
- Bottles in the graveyard
- A village far, far away
- But she doesn’t speak Arabic…
- Not without my daughter
- The first lie he told me
- A surreal wedding
- Telling my mum I’d got married
- I’ve always wondered what a foreign prison would be like
- It’s fun being a beach bum
- The man who fell from the sky
- The day I skinned a rabbit
- Tri-lingual birthday cakes
- Losing it
- Solitude, part one
- Solitude, part two
- Memories of Tunisia – Ramadan
