Escaping to Tunisia

On the sound advise of one of the blog readers, I have decided to give Tunisia a try, be it only for a change of scenery and atmosphere. So I staid one week in Sousse, a coastal resort which besides having a good infrastructure is also known for its available boys.

You should know that same-sex relations are not allowed in Tunisia, just like prostitution is not permitted in Thailand ; nothing there which looks like gogo bars : however there are some meeting places in town where it is quite easy to find willing boys – or to be found by them. Most of these places are public bars or streets, so not as dangerous as you could imagine.

And yes the boys were there, despite still being low season, and some were gorgeous at least if you like manly well-built twinks or younger.

Do not think of bringing your boy to your hotel, nor topping him, or even having long kissing and cuddling sessions, but I had a good time with the ones I met. Some prices are lower than in Thailand (meals, hotel rooms, boys tips), some more expensive such as short-time rooms. All in all a good experience and I will probably go back but closer to summertime to enjoy a hotter weather, as it was chilly and windy for most of my stay.

Freedom at last

Finally I've  got it ... I stopped working some weeks ago, being lucky to qualify for an early retirement due to the fact that I had begun working when I was only 14. And you know what ? I do not miss work at all ! In fact for the first time in my life I feel what freedom looks like and I simply could not go backwards any more.

I have yet to go to Thailand, and I would of course have reported here if I had gone. But I could have all the time I needed to prepare my next trip which is scheduled for next June. For the first time I could book my flights according to my own will without having to juggle all kinds of work commitments and deadlines, leave entitlements, weather conditions and airline promotions ... and that makes all the difference. This is what I call freedom, this what I call life.

These first months were devoted to many exciting tasks, such as resting, cycling, keeping up my thai language, looking at cycling races on TV ... And also allowing myself a trip to Tunisia as a retirement gift. 

Five weeks to go and I will be back again in Thailand ; for the first time (and because of a somewhat pushy boyfriend), I will spend one week in Cambodia. Now doing my homework ...
