    3 Monate unterwegs - Taghazout

    December 3, 2019 in Morocco ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Heute sind wir seit genau 3 Monaten unterwegs - Wahnsinn wie schnell die Zeit vergeht! Aktuell sind wir in Taghazout, einem kleinen Dörfchen nördlich von Agadir, welches erst von Hippies entdeckt wurde und sich dann zu einem touristischen Surferörtchen entwickelt hat. Wir fühlen uns auf Anhieb wohl und haben es mit unserem Hostel richtig gut angetroffen. Von der Dachterrasse aus hat man einen tollen Ausblick auf den 5km langen Panoramabeach und die drei Hostelschildkröten leisten einem beim Frühstück Gesellschaft - Die sehen einfach so verdammt niedlich aus, wenn sie mit ihren kleinen Füßchen über die Fliesen "flitzen" 🐢❤️ Da Christoph immer noch etwas erkältet ist, verbringt er den Großteil seiner Zeit dort und ich nutze die Zeit, um nochmal Surfen zu gehen - Diesmal ganz alleine😱, aber die netten Mädels aus dem Hostel haben mir den perfekten Surfspot empfohlen und ich finde mich gut zurecht... Entlang der Strandpromenade befinden sich super viele kleine Cafés in denen man günstig Essen oder bei einem frisch gepressten Orangensaft den Sonnenuntergang genießen kann... Nach dem wir zwei Wochen in Sidi Ifni waren, tut es gut einen neuen belebteren Ort für sich zu entdecken und hätten wir nicht bereits einen Flug nach Ägypten für Sonntag gebucht, so hätten wir sicher noch ein, zwei Wochen dort verweilt... Merkwürdig, dass wir jetzt nach genau einem Monat in Marokko das erste mal das Gefühl haben dort angekommen zu sein :P Das fühlt sich gut an, auch wenn es morgen weiter nach Essaouira geht....Read more

    Paradise Valley

    May 10, 2019 in Morocco ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    We'd read about this place before we decided to come to Taghazout and luckily in the morning, after a little bit of calling around other hostels, Yasim from our hostel managed to sort out a tour for us.
    We jumped in his car and quickly picked up a German couple to complete our group and headed off towards the mountains.
    First, we stopped off for a look around an argan oil producer. The place is entirely staffed by women and acts as an opportunity for them to have some financial indepence while producing a speciality product of this part of Morocco. The argan tree has a little fruit like a cross between an olive and an almond which they use to make the oil. The oil is then used for food and making cosmetics.
    Next we drove to the end of the valley and started a bit of a hike along the river, stopping at a little cafe shack to order our lunch for later.
    Eventually, after climbing over some slippery rocks we arrived at paradise. It's a pool created by water running down from the mountains surrounded by palm trees in the middle of the dry landscape all around. We swam in the surprisingly cold water, sunbathed and watched braver people than us jump off the rocks.
    The route is circular so to come back we had to climb around the side of the pool, which was pretty terrifying but we managed to swear our way through it. After stopping back at the cafe to eat our tagine and drink mint tea we got back in the car and drove around the mountain to a hot spring. It wasn't quite as beautiful as the paradise valley but it was interesting to see local people enyoing the hot water. As it was rather full we decided to enjoy it only from distance.
    We had our dinner by the ocean in a romantic little local restaurant with an amazing view.

    Agadir

    May 12, 2019 in Morocco ⋅ ☀️ 36 °C

    A heatwave has reached us with up to 38° so we were really looking forward to our bargain deal 3 star hotel in Agadir with swimming pool.
    In the morning we got on the local bus and an hour later we were in our "private pool", as the hotel was pretty much empty. No sunbathing tho, we are in big pain from yesterday!
    The most important task was to buy our bus ticket for the next day so once we cooled down we headed off and also to see a bit of Agadir. At the main market we got a bit ripped off by paying a lot for some unwanted tea and henna but we knew it was coming at one point.
    We had a look at the beach and surrounding hotel complexes and restaurants but it's all kind of fake and plastic and completely separated from the rest of the city.

    Taghazout

    May 11, 2019 in Morocco ⋅ 🌫 20 °C

    Taghazout is a small fishing village which develops a lot year by year to keep up with the surf tourism (there wasn't even sewage system 5 years ago). The panoramic beach is a top surf spot in Morocco so we also couldn't miss out on renting a board and discovering how much we remembered from our one and only surf lesson 4 years ago in Ecuador. Well as it seems not a lot :D but we decided to blame it on the waves. The beach was windy but the sun was extremely strong so we both got painfully sunburnt. After a little siesta we went out to grab some food and mint tea by the ocean before sunset. Some places don't serve food from 7:25pm to 8pm as they break their fast, some others do so we try to remember not to order close to sunset because it's a little bit uncomfortable if the call comes from the mosque and everyone can start eating but some poor guy is stuck serving us.
    We had a lovely, relaxing time in Taghazout, ready to leave for Agadir tomorrow.

    Atlas Mtns day 4 Ouled Berhil to Agadir

    October 27, 2019 in Morocco ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    The day started with a hearty breakfast which wasn’t quite ready at 0800 when requested but was probably the best of the trip so far!

    We set off at 9.30 and were soon caught by 2 local cyclists whom we drafted for several miles before thanking them and dropping off. This helped us cover the first 32k (20 miles) in an hour. Not bad for gravel/ cross bikes with paniers.

    The National route was very straight , slightly downhill and smoothly metalled. Traffic was not too bad and a real mixture of motor scooters, trucks, vans with sheep, cows or chickens on the roof etc.

    We thought were making good time to cover th calculated 110k (68 miles) to Agadir. Nothing really to stop and see until we got to Tarandount , where we ended up going through the centre of the walled city on market day which at first was slightly intimidating and then fascinating.

    We ploughed on stopping for an egg sandwich ( from breakfast) , freshly pressed orange and apple juice when the sun started to blaze. As we sat eating a mini whirlwind moved through the forecourt!.

    Lots of police checks on the roads , basically at the entrance to each major town or village; not interested in bikes, but friendly enough.

    At the 68 mile mark we had only just reached the very outskirts of Agadir and our off line local directions said another 10 miles!! It went on and on and when we’re close to our destination the aptly named Hotel Atlantic View we got lost and Andrew got disoriented and drove into a sharp pointy bush gashing himself; nothing too serious although the Hotel treated it seriously enough when we eventually arrived. The appartment hotel wasn’t too keen to have our bikes in the foyer but as it turns out there would have been ample room in the room! We dumped or stuff and headed for a swim in the see 128k completed (89 miles!).

    Later we headed out for dinner, but Agadir is a resort based location so not many restaurants to choose from. We did find one though with beer on the menu outside and on the menu; happy days except that the waiter informed us they didn’t serve alcohol! Quite a surprise therefore when they produced a bottle of red when he pleaded “I really need a little glass of rouge with my tagine” in French obs! He had to keep it under the table though! And our waiter did pour the water like it was wine though and we were quite enjoying our Orange juices by then.!!

    Our goal was to cycle from Marrakech to Agadir via the highest road points in the Atlas Mountains in 4 days..... and we did it! Bus back to Marrakech tomorrow; time flies!

    Day 3 : Hazy Day

    March 5 in Morocco ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Bit of a drab hazy start, which lasted most of the day with the odd sunny interval. At least it made for a pleasant walk to the marina and back. After lunch it was reading time by the pool and then a short walk to the gym. If only my YMCA Gym had this view!!! 🏃‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🚴‍♂️Read more

    Massa Desert dam

    August 17, 2019 in Morocco ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    On this viewpoint there was an amazing view of the multilayered landscape created by all types of environments... the desert to the west, the mountains to the north and the lake created by the dam to the east. An unforgettable view.Read more
