Algeria is Morocco’s neighbouring country and was also colonized by the French. It is Africa’s largest country which gives it very different landscapes: the Sahara desert on one end and the other is the Mediterranean sea. Since some parts of Algeria were part of the Roman Empire, there are some spectacular Roman sites to visit in the towns of Timgad and Djemila. The people are as great as the vast landscapes you will discover. They are warm people who love to get to know others and aren’t shy about asking questions.
