I’ve heard great things about Morocco and due to the fact I have love to visit distinct countries I made a decision to stop by this North African nation and also I wasn’t frustrated.
The nation offers great natural scenery
as the Atlas Mountains, green palm oasis, substantial gorges not to mention the Sahara desert. The history of those cities can be incredible from the coastal city of Essaouira to the donkey street spacious roads of Fes.
We have book our excursion with a company termed Your Morocco Tour. They ordered everything from us. We chose us up in the airport at Casablanca, where we remained our very first nighttime. Casablanca is another huge city and have not a lot to watch, but the amazing mosque of Hassan II which will receptive to non-Muslims.
We travelled into Rabat, Roman ruins of Volubis, visited Meknes then ended our afternoon at Fes day trips from Marrakech.
The older medina in Fes is still a place unlike any other. It is a exact old city, where the time ceased and almost nothing has changed as the 12th century, except people now have electricity and satellite dishes. It also seems like it did not change because centuries ago. It’s a really authentic city with a many ethnic, religious and historical sights.
Soon after Fes we drove a very long drive to Merzouga to undergo the Sahara desert. I will never forget our night at the desert by Erg Chebbi. The yearlong journey to the camels was maybe not what I expected, but we made it to the camp from the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi. The sky was coated by millions of star; our regional guides were actively playing on drums and signing up their Berber music using an passion. They also reveal us how sand bread has been made from the fire. This had been a amazing night that I won’t ever forget about.
The following two days were stuffed up by magnificent scenery. We visited the maximum palm refuge in Morocco, the Todra Gorge. The night time we spent in the Dades gorge lined by steep curved highway that pops around reddish stone. We watched a couple Kasbah on the road such as the Ait Ben Haddou which was quite impressive also. We cross the Atlas Mountains that were really large through the Tizi Tichka Move. The views of all those Berber villages have been quite unique and astonishing how people within this century live.
Marrakech didn’t offer an impression to be old as Fes. We’ve seen a number of amazing gardens as well as other historical sights. Even the Koutoubia mosque is and its minaret are known from many movies whilst the sight of Marrakech. I shouldn’t forget the crazy square of Djema El Fna that matches by many jugglers, belly dancers, along with singers and additionally stalls of food. It had been interesting to receive lost from the souks in Marrakech. It is incredible that which it’s possible to buy out there. The terrible thing was that some of the shopkeepers were far to pushy.
I would like to have this chance to thank you to our driver Ibrahim. He had been just fantastic! He was very satisfied all the moment, and forced us feel at home at Morocco.
