North African RunHi all! I am an Irishman who plans to travel around the world in 2014. My first leg is to run and camp across North Africa; Tunisia to Egypt. My chief concern is fresh water: does the coastline have regular settlements with fresh water? I hope to cover 20 miles per day. Any advise would be most appreciated. Tiger.

1..... sorry to throw a little cold water on your dream, the border crossing is closed between Morocco and Algeria and unlikely to be reopened any-time soon. Getting into Morocco will be easy for EU citizens, an entry stamp in your passport acts as a visa for three months, while getting a visa for Algeria is a bit more complicated.
