    Wedding Anniversary in Marrakech

    April 11 in Morocco ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    An unforgetable anniversary celebration!

    A horse carriage ride through exotic Marrakech to a delightful restaurant decorated as a traditional Riad. A Riad is traditional house in Morocco. It is characterized by having an inner courtyard or a garden as the central element of the building. As a matter of fact, the name comes from the Arab word 'ryad' – garden.

    Moroccan specialties for dinner - harira soup (Moroccan lentil soup), couscous, lamb tajine, tasty dessert and wine. Entertainment of a lively Moroccan floorshow with belly dancers, snake charmer, local singers and dancers performing Atlas Music....our tour director requested a special love song to be performed by the local entertainers. Certainly, a night to remember!!! 🎊🎇🎉

    Marrakech, Morocco

    April 11 in Morocco ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    Marrakech is the fourth largest city in Morocco. The region was inhabited by Berber farmers from Neolithic times but the actual city was founded in 1062 AD. Today it is one of the busiest cities in Africa and serves as a major economic center and tourist destination.

    City sightseeing tour of the 19th century Bahia Palace; 16th Century Saadian Tombs which is a large complex of lavish mausoleums and tombs created to be the final resting place for the many rulers and members of the Saadi dynasty; and Jemaa El-Fna, the vibrant town center dominated by the 222-ft high 12th Century Koutoubia Mosque and Minaret which is the symbol of Marakech. The Koutoubia Minaret is constructed of red bricks and sandstone with many ornamental details.

    Jemaa el-Fna sits at the very heart of the city’s medina and has become perhaps the most iconic image of the country itself. A sprawling, terracotta-hued square overlooked by the Koutoubia mosque tower, Jemaa el-Fna is sprinkled with colorful food stalls, henna artists, snake-charmers, monkey-handlers and bell-clad dancers. It has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985 and has been described as a "world famous square". It is a hneycomb of intricately connected alleyways with a dizzying nimber of stalls and shops thar range from kiosks no bigger than an elf's closet to storefronts that expand once you're inside.

    Chichaoua

    January 26 in Morocco ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Heute hat sich unsere Reisegruppe getrennt, eventuell finden wir uns ja noch mal zusammen. Wir sind auf dem Weg in den Süden nach Mirleft und Sidi Ifni. Das sind ca.650 Kilometer, gut die Hälfte haben wir geschafft. Die Autobahn fährt sich super und wir können schon die Ausläufer des Atlas sehen. Und es wird warm ... übernachten heute in Chichaoua, standen erst im Ort auf einem Parkplatz und hatten die Genehmigung vom Parkplatz Wächter, aber dann kam die Polizei und geleitete uns mit Blaulicht vor die Gendamerie. Das hatten wir auch noch nicht... sicherer geht nicht. Waren noch schnell was essen und noch 1 Tüte Eier gekauft, jetzt ist Feierabend 🤗🤗🤗Read more

    Marrakech

    November 4, 2016 in Morocco ⋅ ⛅ 72 °F

    It was exciting to change this trip's momentum by visiting Marrakesh. Being so close to Europe we knew we needed to make time to visit Morocco and step foot in Africa for the first time!

    We didn't really know what to expect and what we discovered was a city flooded with lights, noise, people and craziness that can only be understood if experienced. The Medina which is at the heart of the city is where you'll find tiny streets with local shops selling everything from traditional goods to knock off brand names. It was a bit intimidating walking through the Medina as you had to weave out of the way of scooters, bicycles, and locals trying to grab your attention to come into their stores and restaurants. We quickly realized we had to be very alert at all times and walk with confidence to avoid looking like a "tourist". Oh and good luck finding a map of the tiny streets since it doesn't seem to exist, which led to plenty of wandering in the never ending maze.

    The main square was also an interesting experience and basically a huge carnival. No matter what time you visited it, there were people everywhere, mostly poorer locals trying to make money in any way they could including snake charmers, men with monkeys on leashes, traditional dancers, acrobatic acts and much more!

    We embraced this cultural immersion and got a chance to see how this predominantly Muslim country had been influenced by religion in their daily life.

    Naturbrücke Imi-n-Ifri

    December 16, 2018 in Morocco ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Wir trennen uns schweren Herzens von unserem schönen Ausblick auf dem wirklich sehr schön angelegten und gepflegten Campingplatz Zebra.
    Heute beginnt das Abenteuer Marrakech.
    Wir fahren auf direktem Weg, über sehr gute Nebenstraßen, dorthin.
    Stoppen an der Naturbrücke Imi-in-Ifri.
    Der Fluss hat einen Felsen ausgewaschen und faszinierendes geschaffen.
    Wir laufen, vielmehr klettern durch die Schlucht. Unser Führer, der auf einmal da ist und uns durch die Schlucht führt, zeigt uns das der Fluss einmal Afrika als Silhouette erschaffen hat, geht man ein Stück weiter sieht man Südamerika.
    Es war toll.
    Weiter geht es nach Marrakech. Wir fahren auf den Stellplatz direkt in der Altstadt. Dazu müssen wir durch die Stadt. Das ist mit unseren Autos nicht so einfach. 3,20 hoch...überall Tore... die Medina vor Augen. Ein Rollerfahrer erhebt immer drohend den Finger. Er möchte uns führen. Wir wollen das nicht. Er ist hartnäckig. Irgendwann geben wir nach... und siehe da...ratz fatz sind wir am Platz.
    Aber es war schön eine Hammer fährt. Hut ab an unsere Fahrer.
    Angekommen ging es dann in die Stadt.
