Well with the world in turmoil our Morocco trip feels like a lifetime ago rather than just a few weeks. At least we got out and back into Spain before they closed the borders. We have now made an earlier than planned return back home to the UK and as we are practising two weeks self isolation in case we picked up anything en route before our return. This has of course left us with plenty of time so here are details of our stops in Morocco.
Our route took us a short distance down the coast from Asilah to Moulay Bouselham, we then headed inland to Meknes and across the mountains to the desert, following the coast back up when we headed north. In hindsight we are so glad we chose this route as the coast here really didn’t hold much interest for us and we wondered if we’d have chosen to do it first would we have found the place quite so enchanting. Without doubt our favourite stops were in Erg Chebbi in the Sahara desert at the amazing Haven Le Chance campsite where you have panoramic views of the desert and the wild camping in the charming town of Tafraroute.
Morocco is definitely a marmite place and the people we met along the way either loved it or loathed it. If you follow our blog you will know by now that we were in the former group and are excited about going back again, possibly next winter if we are allowed to travel again by then!!!
Whilst we are all spending more time confined over the coming weeks, if you are using it to plan a future trip and have any questions please fire them our way.
Stay safe and well all.
