Djurdjura National Park Algeria

Algeria is much more than the Sahara desert. There's plenty of mountains and vegetation around us on the coast. Our friends invited us to go camping and hiking at the Cairn Mountain glamping site in the Djurdjura National Park in Tizi Ouzou, which is about 2 hours east of Algiers. The hike had wonderful views and we even saw monkeys in the trees. It was a great weekend trip away from the city!

Nice France

It's pronounce Nice, not nice, but it is a nice city in France. Can you hear the difference just by reading that? OK, think niece if you don't know how to pronounce it.

Bordeaux France


Bordeaux France is a two hour direct flight from Algiers. It's a great long weekend getaway. I made a 4-day weekend using vacation time so we could get a little break in the middle of December. We got our usual museum infusion. There was a big Christmas Market that was fun to check out along with the holiday lights of the city.
