Morocco route and stops

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…

Morocco Country Guide Hints and Tips

After travelling Morocco for almost 3 months we have said our goodbyes for now. If you’re contemplating Morocco then our hints and tips for visiting are below.
