It's now been three months ago that I left for a twelve day trip through Morocco, and as usual I had a budget plan drawn up for this trip pre-departure. After some research online, I decided that 800 euros seemed like an amount I could work with. Yes, you read that correctly, only 800 euros… Continue reading Twelve day Moroccan roadtrip; what does it cost?
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 about 470 kilometers ahead of us… Continue reading The last stage of our Moroccan adventure: from Merzouga to Fes
As we were planning our Moroccan roadtrip, the Sahara desert was most definitely the excursion I was looking forward to the most. Not specifically because I was looking forward to spending a couple of hours on the back of a giant dromedary – yup dromedary, not camel -, but mostly just for the incredible views… Continue reading Why the camel ride through the Sahara desert is worth the aching bum

Luckily it’s not yet swarming with tourists so it doesn’t take anything away… Continue reading Nature at its best in the Todgha Gorge

There also wasn’t very much information available on this valley in any travel guides, so it hadn’t really caught our attention. But after Ali’s… Continue reading Unplanned drive through the Vallée des Roses
It was early afternoon by the time we left the city of Ouarzazate behind us and continued our roadtrip to our next destination: the Dades Valley. We expected magnificent views of spectacular canyons, a beautiful scenic road through the valley and an amazing landscape in which we could stretch our legs and do some smaller hikes. Check,… Continue reading Discover the beauty of the Dades Valley
The city of Ouarzazate itself isn’t much to write home about, but the area has a few sights that make for a great half day trip. I found it to be a nice place to spend some time before heading to the Dades Valley. Being the cinema freak that I am, we of course stopped… Continue reading From the movie sets to the oasis near Ouarzazate
