Hi My Lovely People!!
How have you been guys? I can't tell you enough how I missed being active from blogging all these days that I was MIA. The last two months were little crazy at work. Nevertheless I am glad that I could finally visit a place in the mean time, that I had so wanted to, for a very long time now. Today's post features my short trip to Tunis and the very first travel post in ProgressivePanache. I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed roaming around this ancient historic Village, Sidi Bou Said, in northern Tunis.
What attracted me to visit this place were the white and blue houses. There is something very magical, and surreal about this place, which has a reputation of being the town of artists. Many artists have lived or visited and have worked here in the past. Though I am not that an art lover kinda person, I could feel how any creative person would feel and how he would connect to the ambience here. One can feel there is history here. The history may not be that rich, but it surely has tradition to it. I am a sucker for anything that has a traditional and folk touch to it. It is a small uphill village that can be covered walking in two to three hours if you walk through each and every lane. I just took the straight way that led me to the highest peak from where the Port of Tunis is clearly visible. I must tell you it is a breathtaking view from there. Specially if you are like me who loves to see the sun go down, it is just surreal. I sat in one of the most known places, Cafe Delices, to relish a local seafood dish along with a minty-nutty-tea to enjoy the sunset. But am really sorry I was so smitten by the view that I almost forgot to capture the sunset through my lens. Though, what I know for sure is that I will treasure that view in my heart for my entire lifetime.
Last but not the least, as a fashion blogger lets talk about the outfit I wore. I had planned a very dreamy summery maxi dress to go with the, lets say, theme of the location. But much to my disappointment it was a very windy and chilly day and I had to settle down with my High waisted skinny jeans and a turtle neck knitted crop-top. Threw in a long woolen coat along and wore my spring inspired canvas shoes which I am obsessing these days.
Thank you so much for stopping by,.....until next time...keep it stylish...keep it functional.
Lots of Love
