    Beach Charges

    I negotiated sunbed and parasol all day and use of the swimming pool in a nice hotel in Kantoui, provided I buy a lunch/drinks, so to me it's a good deal as I'd be eating out several times a week anyhow. Great environment, new, modern, friendly management, no hassle but help if you need it...

    Car Insurance in Tunisia

    Thank you so much for sharing all of this and so sorry that you had to endure what you did when all you did was "act in good faith". I've had my own "car drama" here and hence am very reluctant to buy another.....

    How would you rate the hospitals/clinics in Tunisia, plus hospital list

    Alas, not found a clean clinic yet, but if I have a place that I can recommend I'll post it up. Still looking at options for private medical cover. Infection is VERY serious and can kill. Whilst the Medical staff have good knowledge of disease, they do NOT understand responsiveness to...

    food in the uk

    There are lots of halal meat vendors - you just need to do the research. Most of the large supermarkets have a halal meat counter. The UK has one of the most sophisticated and well organised network of food distribution in the world. I'm sure you will find something. Like anyone adapting to...

    Compare living cost's in Tunisia and UK

    I've noticed a hike in prices in just the last 2-3 years! But, in Sousse, if you know where to go, you can get 2 course meals with fresh ingredients, prepared in a clean kitchen for just under £10 a head. Soft drink only of course! Ok - so not the Savoy - but you can enjoy dining out in a café...

    How would you rate the hospitals/clinics in Tunisia, plus hospital list

    I would never touch a public hospital in Sousse. Infection city. Even the Clinic Olivier has poor hygiene standards, although their knowledge of medicine is remarkable. I had a friend who had cancer of the kidney and was treated very quickly, very well and thanks to that is bouncing around...

    Marrying a Younger Tunisian Man

    How strange that you should say that. I have Tunisian friends who are fantastic, decent and wonderful people. However, it is true (and I could quote you hundreds of stories Rosewater) where naïve Europeans/Americans have been lied to, cheated, mal-treated and robbed by Tunisians. My comments...

    Marrying a Younger Tunisian Man

    I have an American friend who got to know a Tunisian man on facebook, and saw Tunisia as an alternative to Turkey where she'd previously tried to settle, but that hadn't worked out. The man's family decided to "host" her. They said she could come and stay in their home for as long as she...

    Marrying a Younger Tunisian Man

    Maybe they don't but never doubt the pressure that will be applied by the Tunisian family. Procreation is the name of the game!!!

    Why you married a tunisian man ???

    Salimlov it is like this. Everyone recognises that there are good and bad people in every nationality. Unfortunately, there appears to be a disproportionate number of bad Tunisian men as opposed to good Tunisian men! Whether it is the taxi driver who doesn't put on his meter (which he should...

    Marrying a Younger Tunisian Man

    Thanks Scottochott for your candid response and for echoing my words. I wish there was something that could be put in the water to calm this terrible, leach-like behaviour. My friend is still reeling from her (now over) age difference relationship. Typical story... met on line, coerced...

    Fake marriages / use and abuse the system

    Fake marriage partners and terrorists should be treated almost the same. Life time ban on entering the country where the scam or attack was made. For terrorists I'd bring back the death penalty.

    Marrying a Younger Tunisian Man

    I think I'm going to write a book about Tunisian relationships called "But mine's different". I don't wish to cause distress but here are the facts: * It is unacceptable in this culture to marry ANYONE that is +5 or -5 years difference in age. * ALL Tunisian men want children. Marriage for...

    Not at all offended. I know so many that have had ageing relatives foisted onto them without consultation. Take care.

    Tunisia has the highest divorce rate

    Scotty - alas the majority are like that. Cold comfort to you I know and as others have said on this page, ingrained attitudes are just that and the future doesn't look rosy. To ladies involved in relationships with Tunisian men (these are generalities and not specific to your situation...

    Tunisia has the highest divorce rate

    Just a "so-so" day today. However, my friend has found a great new deli so will check it out some time. It is sad here that they don't do more culturally in the form of art exhibitions or shows; but I do find Tunisians in the main are culturally disinterested. You rarely see them at the...

    Chit Chat about anything..

    Only the Tunisian people can change their country and sadly, I see nothing in their hearts or eyes that say they will. Added to that the ones with entrepreneurial skills are planning to leave ... there IS plenty of help for Tunisia but for a reason that no-one can seem to explain, the projects...
