ALEA IACTA ES – MOROCCO!

A few days ago we confirmed our trip to Morocco. I can’t describe how much I am looking forward to this new adventure, because October seems so far away that I would like to speed up the time just to go – now or at least tomorrow.

I have been thinking about traveling to Morocco for a long time. Actually the offer of an adventurous trip with Slovenian travel agency Shappa seemed really interesting and I think we are getting „value for money“. After all, we love to travel independently, that`s why the budget and itinerary must be as we were traveling on our own. Although I believe that the independent travel is a much better way of traveling, it doesn`t mean that you shouldn`t use the services of those agencies that give you the good arrangement.
On our trip to Cuba, we met a wonderful people that seemed to be just a good company for our next adventure, and we mentioned to them our next trip. As for now, I think we could be going to Morocco with some of them and it makes me very happy. Of course, as it happens, when you mention that you are planning a trip, everyone would like with you. However, what I`ve learned is that I do not like when I am persuaded and I am not planning to do that to others. When I decide to travel, then I am going and anybody else how wants to go – can go.

What do I expect of my trip to Morocco? 13 days of adventure through the most beautiful parts of Morocco on the route: Fez – Volublilis and Moulay Idris – Chefchauen surroundings – the desert Merzuga – Dades – Ait Benhaddou – Ouzud – Ourika valley with views of the Atlas – Marrakech
We wanted the route to include trekking on the highest peak of Atlas – Toubkal (4167 m), but as we are going in late October, there will probably be snow, so we gave up this venture. What a shame!
If I marked the route right, it should look like this:


Well, you must be wondering what shall we be doing there? You know how the trip goes – we’ll see much of the country, visit the most important places and buildings on our road, we`ll enjoy the nature, go on the trekking trails, explore canyons, ride camels through the desert, sleep in the desert camp, and I’m sure that we won`t miss the good food, the drinks, a lot of fun and laughter and all followed with the Moroccan rhythms.
As the travel time will approach, I’ll bring you more information about my preparations and this wonderful country.
