North Africa

The current revolutions look set to transform North Africa’s social and political scene. From a traveller’s point of view, it would be a breakthrough if a travel route across the region opened up, as it has been decades since you could go from Morocco to Egypt overland. At the time of writing, the Morocco-Algeria border is still closed and Algeria’s border with Tunisia problematic. Libya is currently all but out-of-bounds to ordinary travellers anyway, but under Gaddafi its borders have tended to be more often closed than open.

Fingers crossed for the near future. . .
