I have heard great things about Morocco and since I like to go different countries I decided to visit this kind of North African country and I was not unhappy.
The nation offers perfect natural scenery such as the Atlas Mountains, green palm oasis, high encolure and of study course the Sahara leave. The history of the cities is likewise incredible from the coastal town associated with Essaouira to the dope alley wide roadways of Fes.
Morocco tours have book our own tour with some sort of company called Your Morocco Tour. They arranged everything by us. They picked out us up in the airport within Casablanca, where all of us stayed our very first night. Casablanca can be another big city and has not much in order to see, except the spectacular mosque regarding Hassan II that will is open to non-Muslims.
Next working day we travelled to Rabat, Roman ruins regarding Volubis, visited Meknes and then concluded our day throughout Fes.
The old medina in Fes can be a place such as no other. It is usually a very older city, where period stopped and practically nothing has changed considering that the 12th century, other than people now include electricity and dish dishes. Otherwise, that looks like that did not switch since centuries ago. It is just a very traditional city that features a many cultural, historical and faith based sights.
After Fes we drove an extended drive to Merzouga to experience typically the Sahara desert. I will never neglect our night found in the desert by Erg Chebbi. Typically the two-hour ride on the particular camels has not been what I expected, but we made that to our camp by simply the sand sand hills of Erg Chebbi. The sky has been covered by a lot of star; our local guides were using on drums and even signing their Berber music by a fire. They likewise show us just how sand bread is done in the flames. It had been an awesome night that we is going to never forget.
Next two days have been chock-full by wonderful scenery. We went to the very best palm oasis in Morocco, the Todra Gorge. The night we put in in the Dades gorge lined by steep curved road that winds about red rock. All of us saw several Kasbah on the path such as the particular Ait Ben Haddou that was quite outstanding too. We cross through the Atlas Mountains that had been very higher via the Tizi Tichka Pass. The views of the particular Berber villages were quite unique plus surprising how folks in this particular century still live.
Marrakech performed not give an impression as becoming so old because Fes. We have got seen many gorgeous gardens and other traditional sights. The Koutoubia mosque is plus its minaret are known from numerous movies as typically the sight of Marrakech. I need to not overlook the crazy square of Djema Este Fna that fills by many jugglers, belly dancers, and singers and in addition stalls of foodstuff. It was really fun to acquire lost within the souks in Marrakech. It is incredible what you can buy right now there. The bad thing was that a few of the shopkeepers were method to pushy.
I want to be able to make use of this opportunity to be able to thank you to the driver Ibrahim. He was just fantastic! Having been very happy all the time, and made us feel so at home inside Morocco.
