Let me introduce myself, my name is Héloïse, I’m 15 (16 tomorrowww) and I live in Paris, France!
So this is my first article and I have no idea where I’m going with this blog.. But what I know is that I’m going to share with you what I’ve been loving, whether it’s my travels, music, make up, food, movies, fashion or anything else!
I went to Tunisia during Spring Break with my mom, my brother, my grandparents and my best friend, and I’m gonna share a few of the pics I took while I was there.
For the ones who don’t know, Tunisia is a small country in North Africa, even though I’d like to, I’m not going to explain the country’s history, nor its actual problem because, in all honesty, I can’t.
But I’m going to try to put words on the feelings I had during my trip.
We spent one day in Tozeur and visited the medina which is the old neighbor of the town. It’s so quiet, and I think it’s the only place I went during my trip that was peaceful.
We then took the road and the landscapes were so gorgeous, it was truly breathtaking!
It was then time time to enter the desert. I’ve already had been there once, for a week, and because of some personal problems it was one of the worst trip of my life. This last trip made me fear this one so much that I was almost crying during the 45 minutes drive that took us into the desert itself.
Of course the desert is amazing and beautiful, but I feel like it’s not for me. I don’t feel good in it, I don’t feel that interior peace that my mom felt every time she came, I can’t be myself. I felt some sort of embarrassment when I was talking with the bedouins, even though they’re the most nice and happy persons I’ve ever met. Really. They were so great with me, and they really made me want to hug them (if you know what I mean). Well, I’m gonna stop writing and show you the pictures. Oh, one more thing, I forgot to say that we stayed 2 days in the desert.
And yes, I did took a selfie with the bedouin I got along with the best!
After that, we spend a very calming week in Djerba, enjoying the sun, our family and the food.
Sadly, I didn’t took any pictures in the souk, but it’s really something special, something we don’t have in our countries. A souk is basically a market, but everybody is screaming, goats are running, children are crying, tourists are taking pictures, twenty grandmothers are talking together, I would say it’s more of an atmosphere than a place.
After a week visiting and sunbathing, it was already time to leave and I took this last picture of the sunrise on our last day and I’m so happy how it turned out, so here it is.
Finally, here are some random snaps I took that I really like.
Okay, so if you’re still reading this THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
