Tunisia Photo Blog: My African Father and Son Adventure

Tunisia Photo Blog

A couple of years ago I spent a fortnight in North Africa with my dad and brother. So I’ve put together this Tunisia photo blog to share some of the views.

There’s actually lots to see, from the barren but gorgeous Sahara Desert to some of the filming locations for Star Wars! I’ve selected the best photos from the trip and compiled them here for your pleasure.

Remember, you don’t need fancy equipment to take lovely photos. Because of the long trip across the Sahara all I took was my smartphone!
