Dougga Photos

Tags: Travel, Tunisia

I recently travelled to Tunisia for a holiday. Visiting the ancient ruined Roman city of Dougga was a highlight. It is quite hard to reach as an independent traveller. First you have to find the Tunis Northern Bus Station (out of the tourist areas), go on a 2-hour bus journey to Teboursouk (the closest town), from there you arrange a return taxi trip to the ruins. Once there though, it is quite impressive. We had the place almost to ourselves for a couple of hours - perhaps we should have arranged for a longer stay with the taxi driver, but we had to catch the last bus back to Tunis! Some of the best photos I took are here on Flickr. In future I will put more photos up under that Flickr account.
