Algeria, a North African gem bordering the vast Sahara Desert and sparkling Mediterranean Sea, boasts a rich history waiting to be explored. From ancient Berber kingdoms and Roman influence to the vibrant era of Islamic dynasties, Algeria’s past is etched in its architecture, traditions, and breath-taking landscapes.

In May 2024 I visited, exploring the coastal cities or Algiers and Oran, visiting magnificent Roman ruins near the “City of Bridges” Constantine, and spending some in the oasis towns deep in the Sahara desert.

On this trip I also took a new gadget – a DJI Pocket 3 – to record some video. Below is the short compilation video I created from the footage I got. Still a learning curve with this so we’ll see how things go on my next trip!

Finally, as well as the photos shown below you can also read my Algeria travel diary.
