Featured Travel Sites: LexicOrient

Added on September 26th, 2005:

LexicOrient - Travel resource for North Africa with information about countries in the Middle East as well.

While renovating our Africa pages, with some slightly new design touches, I noticed an old line on our Tunisia page about the Bardo Museum in Tunis and wondered if there was a suitable link to complement it.

And so I re-stumbled on this 'travel site' (we were already linking to the Encyclopaedia of The Orient from our Middle East index and the Miftah Shamali North Africa country contributions at CiAS).

Visit the site and you'll see that the whole coast of North Africa is covered in considerable detail.

There's in depth travel guides to Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Mauritania, Tunisia and Sudan - with so many small places indexed it's almost unbelievable.

Tore Kjeilen, who gained an honours degree in Science of Religion from the University of Bergen - with Arabic and History as supporting subjects, has put a lot of work into editing this project..... and it shows!

He's been around on the web for quite a while and I think it's fitting that we nominate LexicOrient as the 1st Featured Travel Site in our new series.

Nice work, Tore!

Encyclopaedia of the Orient:
All reference material to Africa and the Middle East is very well hyperlinked, and one could spend hours here studying the region, it's history and culture.

There is one downside to this extensive site though, one that many of us have to live with, and that's the cheap advertisers who insist on producing those flashing ads with numerous pop-unders hard on their heels.

Tore deserves some better sponsors to repay all his hard work.
