Travel diary: The blue city, Sidi Bou Said
“Travels” is an open window on the world. A window for escape. Beauties and Inspirations are everywhere and we wanted to explore the aesthetic fields where they are. No boundary, no limit. Neither physical, nor intellectual.
You will discover here journey diaries in images, photos, words, musics, videos to keep a sharp eye on the world. We will tell you stories of our escapes and those of our contributors with our exclusive images. Our eye, for yours.
We chose to inaugurate this new column with a journey to Sidi Bou Said in Tunisia. Sidi Bou Said is said the Blue City, because of all the blue color ranges represented there. From the sea, to the sky, and even to the earth, Sidi Bou Said is an aesthetic and contemplative travel, as much as delicious and warm. A poetic mixture of wild beauty and Carthaginian civilization.
November 2014, Hotel “La Villa Bleue” – Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia
First vision of Sidi Bou Said was the endless view from this spot. Empty and beautiful.
Cats are all around the city, mostly chilling around cafes and restaurant. It’s part of the color range since they are white. Mainly.
Time at The Villa Bleue was just hanging, around the pool. A touch of summer in the quiet Sidi Bou Said.
Impossible to miss Le Café des Délices, iconic cafe with an impressive view on Tunisia.
Even with a grey sky, colors are beautiful and inspiring.
Flowers, plants are a major part of the city. Everywhere, they are impressive.
All the savoir-faire, the hand made ceramic is huge in Tunisa. Details are perfect.
