Morocco: South east roadtrip!

I had the pleasure to visit my favourite country in the world again: Morocco. During the years I want to see all of it. I hadn’t seen the south east, so that’s where we’ve been. We is, Ali my friend from Merzouga, me, a camera, our rented car and camping gear. We had 8 days for the following tour:

Day 1: Marrakech
Day 2: Marrakech > Taroudant > Tafraoute
Day 3: Tafraoute >  Sidi Ifni > Legzira beach > Aglou Plage
Day 4: Aglou Plage > Souss Massa National Parc > Agadir > Taghazout
Day 5: Taghazout
Day 6: Taghazout > Sidi Kaouki
Day 7: Sidi Kaouki > Essaouira > Marrakech
Day 8: Marrakech

We had a great week. We started in 52 degree Marrakech. From where we drove the old N8 to Taroudant where we had lunch. Along the way we visited a water melon plantation. After lunch we headed to Tafraoute, we took a little road through the mountains through Berber nomad terrains.

In Tafraoute we found that there was a regional party going on, music, great food, fantasia shows. Very impressive. The next day we went off-road to find the Blue Rock formation and the ancient gazelle carvings. After some sightseeing we drove through the mountains to the coast. The entire coast from Sidi Ifni up to Agadir is covered in an ocean mist. We had lunch in Mirleft, tea in Sidi Ifni and we stayed at a camping in Aglou Plage.

From Aglou plage we headed up to Taghazout. We passed the Sous Massa National Parc and Agadir where we took a little break and look around. In Taghazout we booked a camp site for 2 nights and we relaxed a bit at the ocean front. Relaxing at the beach, swimming in the ocean, chilling in the little surfer village, eating delicious fish tajines.

After the buzzing surfer village Taghazout we drove up the coast to the quiet Sidi Kaouki, which is nothing more than a few local homes, three or four little surfer hotels, a campsite and a very big, empty beach. Beautiful!

The last day we drove to Essaouira for breakfast in the Medina. A part of the medina was closed for a movie set. And the ramparts where closed for renovation. So we headed for the port. A buzzing place of local fisherman, a fish market, a great place to see the island Mogador. After strolling through Essaouira we headed back to Marrakech. Where we arrived looking back on a magnificent trip! And already making plans for our next tour in Morocco…

See you soon!

Morocco: A wonderful week in Tanger!

I visit Tanger at least once a year. This time the wedding of my cousin was the occasion to visit Tanger again. Unfortunately the first few days were a bit cloudy, but Tanger is also entertaining when the weather isn’t playing the part.

Day 1: my friend picked me up from the airport and we took the scenic route via Cap Spartel to Town. Enjoyed some breakfast and continued our tour to Cap Malabata. A quick tour to soak up the city. We finished our tour at restaurant La Cantina for a great sea food lunch.

In the evening I headed to the train station to pick up my friends from Merzouga. We enjoyed diner and I dropped them off at their hotel. A great first day.

Day 2: today I’m playing guide to my friends and show them my city: Tanger. We started with breakfast at café Paris. Then we took a cab to café Hafa. After a nice tea we started our tour at the Phoenicians grave site overlooking the new port of Tanger. Following the outer wall of the Kasbah, we headed into the medina. We stopped at little shops, panoramic points, the shop of my uncle, the (fish) markets. We ended out tour relaxing at Tanja plage. We headed back to the apartment and hotel to freshen up and left again for diner. A great day with new good friends.

Day 3: My father also arrived and my friends left again. With my father I planned some practical stops for the apartment. After we went to visit my family. Great to see them all again. It has been 18 months this time. Normally I go every year, this time it has been 18 months. With my cousins we sat together and prepared gifts for the wedding and caught up on the latest stories and gossip.

Day 4: Also a great day driving around town with my father: breakfast at the beach, visit the grave of his grandfather, my great-grandfather, visiting more family, enjoying delicious dinners. It’s Friday, couscous day. At night we went to Chellah Beach club. Temporarily based in the hotel instead of at the beachfront. Once the new port is finished they move back. Great food, music, ambiance and service. Nice father and daughter evening. 

Day 5: Saturday, day 1 of the wedding, the wedding dinner. Today my aunts and cousins are preparing a wedding dinner for the family. They made a temporary kitchen on the roof. They cooked a 3 course dinner for 50 people. Amazing to watch. After the dinner my father, my uncle and me went to Chellah again. Yesterday evening asked for a sequel.

Day 6: Sunday, day 2 of the wedding, the Henna party. We had a wonderful day with all the girls. Enjoying tea, cool drinks, cookies, sweets, dinner. We danced, talked, laugh. And we all got beautiful henna tattoos. 

Day 7: Monday, day 3 of the wedding, the wedding party. We all headed to a very nice party location and got dresses for a lovely, beautiful wedding. I wish the couple all the luck in the world!!! 

Day 8: Back in the apartment after the wedding at 04:45 in the morning. I had to be at the airport at 07:00 in the morning. Oeps!! Content and pleased I fly back home after an amazing week in my lovely Tanger.

Tanger, until very soon!
