Algeria Lunar Landscape


Of the many countries I had the privilege to visit during the last years, Algeria occupies a special place in my travel memories.

Algeria lunar landscape is just heart-warming. One of those images that remain deeply impressed in anyone’s memories.

Golden and pink dunes, rocks sculpted by the wind and a gorgeous landscape as far as the eye can see. The 4×4 jeep drove through in an ever-changing scenery with an inseparable companion: the sound of the wind. At some point, we stopped to admire this lunar landscape: stones, looking like partially shaped marble blocks, disseminated in the sand. I felt as if I was on the moon, incredibly small and unbelievably happy and grateful for the unforgettable emotion I was feeling. It’s something that I can’t describe in words. But I still feel it when I look at the photos of an unforgettable adventure through Algeria Akakus desert.

    I visited Algeria in the Past and I can tell you there are places worth to go to… Such as Tipaza (Roman History in North of Africa) and also Algiers. However, I will not bother to risk my life going south.

      How strange. I never thought I was risking my life when I went in South Algeria. It was one of the most beautiful trips I had and people were fantastic.

    Algeria (along with Tunisia) recently made my travel wish list, after meeting an Algerian man here in France. As often happens with me, I don’t know much about it but just decided I have to go – and then a series of events like your photo draw me inexorably closer. And when and if you go back to Arizona, let me know. I lived there for 12 years and have been all over the state, so I can tell you many, many places to go that you might not know about otherwise. Sending you a great big hug!

      I’m sure you would love Algeria, Barbara. As for Tunisia, I went there when I was a child and didn’t like it that much. But I was maybe too little. Still, I never felt the urge to go back. My impression is that you need to carefully chose your itinerary to stay away from the more touristy places (Tunisia has been a popular touristic destination for people from continental Europe for a long time, while Algeria had been closed – thus preserved – until not long ago).

    What a very cool picture. I love the desert landscape and I think that’s why Utah. Arizona and Namibia draw me so much.

      I’m not surprised to you like the photo, Leigh. As I may have said before, I guess we are very similar. And I so hope to be back to Utah and Arizona soon.
