The last stage of our Moroccan adventure: from Merzouga to Fes

Our last full day in Morocco didn't have the prospect of being the most exciting one. We would be covering quite some road to get back from Merzouga to Fez in just one day and along the way there weren’t that many sights. Or so we thought.

We had  been admiring the beautiful mountain range close to Marrakech for the past days from various locations and now we would finally get closer to it and even cross it. Destination: Ait Benhaddou. The first part… Continue reading Over the Tizi n’Tichka pass to Ait Benhaddou
