Aslemma: I live in Belgium since Max has been born and I feel well there.
Any suggestions of trips etc. much appreciated!
PEK itself is very pleasant, and a good place to people watch, particularly round the Marina and the Musical Fountain on the other side. It will rather depend how long you are going for as to how much you want to pack into your trip, as the desert tour is well worth doing but you need to set aside at least a couple of days and it can be tiring as there is a lot of travelling. The weather should be quite pleasant at that time of year, at least I sincerely hope so, as I'll be in Sousse for a couple of weeks from 3rd May, so perhaps we could meet up for a coffee.
You must of course go into Sousse, which is just down the road from PEK, to visit the Medina. Whilst there do go and see Dar Essid which is an old merchant house, now a museum, actually in the Medina. Entrance is a princely 4 dinar (less than £2) and you can roam at will, even sitting on some of the beds. On the other hand, in my opinion the Catacombs aren't really worth visiting at present. You can get the train to Monastir to see the mausoleum of Habib Bourghiba, which is covered in gold leaf and very impressive or visit Tunis on the train. I'll wait and see what others recommend to you before giving you any more ideas.
We did the Sahara trip from Marrakesh last year so will most likely not do it this time. Have to say though that I love camel riding! Don't like horse riding but love camel riding! xxx
