I was doing a southern loop from Marrakech; camping in the desert, staying in the mountain villages and relaxing on the coast. It was a great trip, and the constantly changing scenery was part of it. It’s hard to pick a highlight, for I really did like it all. We went through the palm groves of the Draa Valley, the dunes of Erg Chegaga, Tata, Tarafroute, the mountain village of Tagoudiche, coastal to Essaouria, back to Marrakech and a whole lot of other places along the way. (Route map of sorts at the bottom)
And in what is my most picture heavy post to date, here’s is some of what I saw…
And’s let not forget Jemaa el-Fnaa square. Post Thursday’s bombing. We didn’t hang around in this area or stay to be entertained by the mythics, snake charmers or water carriers. Not this time.
The route we took looks kind of like this on the map (although we did some more off road, rather than following the roads so it’s not quite accurate)
