Reasons for trip

I am 67 years old and disabled. Prior to retirement I worked for ten years with the British Embassy in Tunis. During my ten year posting in Tunisia I purchased an apartment in Sousse (which I do not sub-let). My partner and I travel to Tunisia twice a year (four weeks each time – spring and autumn) to stay in our apartment. We have many friends in Tunisia (both locals and ex-pats) all of whom make me very proud to be a ‘part time’ resident of the country.

Additionally, I have many friends and relatives in the UK who have frequently asked me what Tunisia is like, I tell them the truth – it is a fantastic country and the local people are unbelievably friendly. When I am asked to recommend a hotel it normally is one either in Sousse or the adjacent area (which I know like the back of my hand). I also know many of the hotel managers who I frequently visit when in Sousse – sometimes, much to my embarrassment I am almost treated like royalty. This only goes to show how ‘warm hearted’ the native Tunisian people are.

Each and every time my friends and relatives have holidayed in Tunisia they always come back stating “we had a fantastic time, the food was 1st class, the hotel staff could not do enough for us and they were so hard working”. They have also invariably stated they enjoyed everything about their holiday and would definitely go back to Tunisia again.

My deepest sympathy goes out to those who lost loved ones on the 26/06/2015, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. But let me tell you about the local Tunisian people, as previously stated they are friendly and very helpful and I am sure they are totally devastated by what occurred there on that awful Friday, they need you to visit their country as they rely on tourism.

Needless to say; my partner and I will be going back to Tunisia again in October, both with an open heart and mind.
