ALGERIA… WHO KNEW IT’S THIS AMAZING?
I’ve spent the last 4 days road tripping around the Northern Mediterranean coast of ALGERIA, and I have been absolutely stunned by what I’ve experienced. From the warm hearts to the stunning nature and complete mix of cultures, I can safely say that this country is one of the most underrated in the world.
And it’s huge… REALLY HUGE.
After Sudan split into two countries in 2011, Algeria emerged as the largest country in Africa by size. It’s so big that only 12% of the land is inhabited (with 44 million people), and over 90% of its surface is covered in the Sahara desert.
If the visa wasn’t so hard to get, then this country would explode in tourism. But I kind of like it the way it is — I didn’t come across a single tourist during my time here.
Algeria is, without question, the most surprising country in Africa for me so far, and I know with certainty that I’ll be back. Insha’Allah!
