The hum drum of life can get to you sometimes. I know it gets to me. Plus, I seem to have a yearning somewhere inside of me to travel and to get out there and see something. Prior to the excitement of Cannes, my cousin and I wanted to go somewhere really chilled out. We ended up booking a mini break in relaxing Tunisia. Why? It was cheap, cheerful and somewhere new to explore.

We got to the Diar Lemdina based in Hammamet on Sunday morning. The weather was a bit overcast and eventually turned to rain. However, when we pulled up outside the hotel, the rain was soon forgotten!
If you live in a big city you can understand how space is at a premium, but not here. Everything was spacious! The bathrooms had beautiful, colourful handmade tiles. Just gorgeous!
The staff were friendly and very welcoming. The hotel itself is inside of a Souk, so all your shopping, spa and coffee fixes could be had right on your doorstep. I highly recommend the hammam followed by a massage. Your stress just simply melts away whilst you float away on a stream of bliss. It was exactly what we needed after Cannes.
We did go exploring and did the usual purchasing of nick knacks, but most importantly we went to the beach. The water was too cold this time of year but it was just so relaxing to be near the sea and take it all in. We also made a little friend.
There were vendors selling their wares but they pretty much left you alone when you said ‘no thank you’.
All in all Tunisia was a fantastic yet relaxing break after the whirlwind of the festival. So tell me where would you like to go to next?
