Kerkennah in the Spring

Life in Sfax can be stressful… too many people, too many cars, too much noise. Whenever Mansour or I need to melt away some of that stress we take the one hour ferry to Kerkennah where we can sleep away the afternoon and take long walks in the palm dotted forest at dusk. From the busy life, to the simple life.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the last two weekends in Kerkennah.

    hi Brittany! it’s a surprise to find your blog, not many foreigners stay in Sfax right? i was one of them a few months ago and i miss everything back there. i’m so exciting to see your words and pictures. when i was in sfax i always wanted to record the life there like you do but i was too busy and staying was only 3 months. or maybe you know the sfaxien english teacher whose family name is Khalaf also. anyway please write back to me, i’d love to hear from you!!! inchalla 🙂

      Aslema! Yes, indeed, not many foreigners here so it’s nice to meet someone else who has spent time in Sfax! So what where you doing here of all places and did you get to travel around Tunisia?

        labes? i was having an internship in Socomenin in Sfax, do you know this company? of course i got to travel all around. from Mediterranean to Sahara. not a big country but with much diversity. very interesting. but i guess the only reason for a foreign woman to live there can only be marriage, isn’t it? have a nice day!

    Hello, I will be on the Kerkennah Islands on saturday the 08.09.2012 for 1 night. I am with the Tunisian Office of Tourism but will be on a press trip with lithuanian television. We are looking to interview a person who lives on the island and/or a person who has moved to the island from overseas. Is there anyway you can help me with contacts? Regards, my email is
