Jackie in Tabarka
We did the Le Kef trip in May. It was the perfect time as it seemed the whole of northern Tunisia was ablaze with the colour of wildflowers. I can't give you the names but you'll see them liberally spread over the following pictures.
We headed along the north coast to Tabarka, a pretty little fishing village which is starting to succumb to the demands of tourism. From there we headed south over the mountains and cork forests of Ain Draham to the Roman ruins of Bulla Regia, famous for its underground houses. From here it was a short hop to the hilltop fortress town of Le Kef. We based ourselves here for a few days exploring the countryside before coming home via the largest and most dramatic of Tunisia's Roman sites - Dougga.
It was also nesting season for storks
