Marrakech - Day 2

Sat, 14 Dec 2013 | By macedonboy | Views [1337]

It's my first full day in Marrakesh and I'm fully organised to go through my itinerary. Armed with Google Maps and 3g, I feel ready to tackle all the sights of interest without a hint of a tourist map. The first stop is Palais El Badii. A palace commisioned ... Read more >

A Den of Villainous Deeds - Marrakech Part 1

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 | By macedonboy | Views [1379]

"Mos Eisley spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villianly." The word of Obi Wan Kenobi as he made his fateful trip to hire a transport that would take to his fate. Events begin to move at the speed of plot. Within a matter ... Read more >

The bicycle in art

Sun, 8 Dec 2013 | By katescarlett | Views [225]

There are three types of road marked on our Carte de Touristique Moroc map. The autovia, or A1 freeway, which mere cyclists are not allowed to use. Major secondary roads, of the type we rode along on our first day riding from Tangier to Larache. These ... Read more >

The step where Strummer sat

Thu, 5 Dec 2013 | By katescarlett | Views [242]

One argument with a customs official and a 35 minute ferry ride, and we are weaving our way through the crowds of Tangiers, where we are repeatedly offered cheap hotels and hashish. 'Welcome to Africa', one would-be guide shrugs when he realises we won't ... Read more >

Manic Morocco

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 | By kish | Views [161]

In the northwest corner of Africa lies a mixed bag of desert sand dunes, mountain peaks, peaceful national parks and manic market places. Morocco is definitely not for the faint hearted - I'd recommend any potential visitor be prepared to get ripped ... Read more >

Roadtrip - cab driver morocco

Wed, 6 Nov 2013 | By jcherrojo | Views [320] | Comments [2] | Video | Scholarship Entry

A dark face, a voice that says many things at once, a complete stranger that seems your closest friend among others that look at you with the same voracity. You end up choosing him over any of them with no time to think through the idea of a thought, ... Read more >

Maroc

Fri, 23 Aug 2013 | By etak91 | Views [124]

Morocco - snake charmers, hijabs, mint tea, orange juice, dirams, tajines, riads, balloon pants, camels, 25cl beer, carpets, set courses, donkeys, travel, French/Arabic/Spanish, leather, medinas, heat. Just some of the words to describe the sights ... Read more >

Surviving Ramadan

Mon, 15 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [199]

Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting from sunrise to sunset, falls inconveniently in July this year, when the days are longest.  Followers of “the one true faith” refrain from eating, smoking and drinking even water, which is especially ... Read more >

Marrakech

Sat, 13 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [163]

The bus from Essaouira to Marrakech was most definitely not the Marrakech Express that Crosby, Stills and Nash sang about.  It stopped for ever Abdel, Hassam and Fatima along the way and ended up taking four hot, non air-conditioned hours.  ... Read more >

Essaouira

Thu, 11 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [172]

Essaouira was one of those "because we're here" stops, with nothing really special to see.  In fact, compared to other places we visited, Essaouira is modern.  It was built in the 19th Century on a French plan so the medina is less of a maze.... Read more >

Oualidia

Wed, 10 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [267]

We’re spending a couple of days in Oualidia, which is on the way to Essaouira, which is on the way to Marrakech, which is . . .     Teamwork Oualidia is a tiny fishing village on the Atlantic, so tiny that there is no dock.... Read more >

Rabat and El Jadida

Mon, 8 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [361]

Train travel in Morocco is a giant step up from taking the bus.  Of course you pay more (especially for Premiere Classe) but the coaches are more comfortable and air-conditioned.  Schedules can be a bit of a mystery to non-French speakers but ... Read more >

Meknes and Volubilis

Sun, 7 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [207]

The tourist office in Meknes was closed on Friday afternoon - almost everything else was too, either because of the holy day or the heat - so we never found a map of the medina.  Rather than wander aimlessly we waited for the temperature to drop ... Read more >

Photos: My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Fri, 5 Jul 2013 | By magreb | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

I hope that I will not wrong if I write an informal letter. I admit, it is difficult to write about yourself, especially when you are competing and when you are supposed to be outstanding. What I appreciate in my own being is the constant wish to be everywhere, ... Read more >
