Just got back from a few weeks in Algeria and thought I’d write up a trip report about this lesser travelled North African country. Will split it into various posts about general tips and some information on cities I visited.
>Knowing Arabic or French is going to make your life far far easier here, basically everybody speaks French, the younger people might speak English
>Bring cash euros and exchange them on the black market, you’ll get about 50% more dinar than taking out from a machine/changing at the bank
>Use couchsurfing, it’s super easy to get hosted here and the people are very kind and willing to show you around and feed you good local food
>Don’t underestimate the size of the country, for context it’s about 2/3rds the size of India and can take a long time to get from place to place
