The Camel Chasers

Off in the distance, just a few hundred feet from Nacho two camels wandered through the desert. They appeared to be wild and definitely uninterested in developing a friendship with Brad despite his desperate attempts to hand feed them a…

It’s amazing how quickly you can get from Europe to Africa. All it takes is 45 minutes by ferry—a quick jaunt across the Strait of Gibraltar and you’re almost in Morocco. I say almost because the arrival port on the…

There’s nothing about the ferry from Tangier to Tarifa that seems complicated. Exiting Morocco is, by far, the easiest border we’ve dealt with. There’s the usual lines and, when the gate opens, a crush of people swarming towards the booths.…

Almost overnight, something changes for us in Morocco. Perhaps it’s the energy that envelops Meknes, perhaps it’s the massive injection of B12 back into our diets. Maybe, it’s just me letting go of trying to push through things and easing…

Την πρόπερασμένη Δευτέρα μπήκαμε στη Μαυριτανία. Η διαδικασία που έπρεπε ν’ακολουθήσουμε στα σύνορα ήταν πολύ πιο απλή απ’όσο φανταζόμασταν και διαβάζαμε. Μας πήρε λιγότερο από 2,5 ώρες και αυτό πιο πολύ γιατί ήμασταν αναγκασμένοι να οδηγήσουμε πολύ αργά στη no…

Ευθεία, ευθεία, ευθεία! Η πρώτη ευθεία στην οποία χαίρομαι να οδηγάω! Από δεξιά μας ο Ατλαντικός, να σκάνε τα στριφογυριστά κύματα και να έχουμε κι ένα ελαφρύ αεράκι για air condition, και από αριστερά μας το απόλυτο τίποτα, να κοιτάς…

Καλησπέρα σας και καλό μήνα, καλό χειμώνα και γενικά ότι άλλο καλό επιθυμείτε! Μην περιμένετε και πολλά νεότερα από εμάς αυτές τις μέρες. Ειδικά έπειτα από το ξεσάλωμα σε Άτλαντα και Σαχάρα, ότι και να γράψουμε και να μοιραστούμε από…

Καλύτερη επιλογή απ’το κάμπινγκ Diamand Vert στη Fes δεν θα μπορούσαμε να είχαμε κάνει! Εντάξει, εκτός κι αν βρίσκαμε πάλι κανέναν couchsurfer βασιλιά με λιμουζίνα να μας κυκλοφορεί στην πόλη και σπίτι με πισίνα. Γιατί μόνο η πισίνα έλειπε από…

10 μέρες πλέον στο Μαρόκο και μπορώ να πω πως νιώθουμε πλέον σαν στο σπίτι μας! Οι εικόνες που αντικρίζουμε γύρω μας, σκουπίδια, κελεμπίες, παλιά αυτοκίνητα, φωνές, ο γενικότερος χαμός που σχεδόν παντού επικρατεί, δεν μας κάνει πλέον τόση εντύπωση,…

Στο δρόμο προς Chefchaouen  Σήμερα το πρωί (05/11/13) 10:30 τοπική ώρα, κατεβήκαμε επιτέλους απ’το καράβι! Ακόμα τα συναισθήματά μου είναι ανάμεικτα. Ούτε περισσεύει ο ενθουσιασμός, ούτε όμως ξεπροβάλλουν φόβοι! Νιώθω σαν τον Robocop σε εκείνη τη σκηνή που είχε πάθει…

The ultimate dress rehearsal. Nearly two months in Morocco. From Ceuta through the Rif Mountains to the far North-East, down along the Algerian border to the Figuig oasis and South to the Moroccan Sahara. Testing everything possible on rough, stony…

Getting the visa for Mauritania was a bit of a pain as it meant to drive back north to the clean and more orderly but quite boring capital Rabat. After queuing up for quite a while at a kind of…

We are sitting here on sofas next to a pool that we have for ourselves on a beautiful little campsite ca. 15km north of Meknes while deciding to do something useful and update the blog. We have been in Morocco…

Separated by only 62 kilometres in distance but several thousand years in time, we visited two contrasting sites of ‘rock art’ in the Anti Atlas region of Morocco. Inhospitable landscapes globally have revealed carvings and paintings left by primal societies;…

Morocco’s notorious Rif region, a mainly mountainous area in the north, stretching over 300km from Tangier in the west to the Melwiyya River in the east is a natural boarder between Europe and Africa. It is also an area synonymous…

In 1956 the French left Morocco after 44-years of occupation but recent times have seen a new invasion; from the Southern Spanish Ports they come in their thousands, a campervan cavalcade marching to a victory of sunshine and low-cost campsites.…
