Morocco was crazy in every way. The desert trip was just the BEST!!! It was a very long way from Marrakech, but so worth it. We stopped at so many awesome places along the way including the atlas mountains, which were stunning, and an amazing gorge! We rode camels and spent so much time just rolling around in the sand. It was so fun! We spent the night in a nomadic tent and stayed up all night star-gazing. That was my favourite part.
The Moroccan locals are such lovely, friendly people as well, even if they do try to constantly sell you things. I love the lively, bustling atmosphere of the markets, and the exotic flavours and colours of the food. Their mint teas were delicious and I'm not even a real tea-drinker! Morocco is just so diverse in landscapes and so different yet so near, and not even that difficult to get around in!!
Of course, this experience would not be the same without our excellent tour guide and driver, Othman Khalloufi, who is now a good friend. He has such a charming, fun personality so we bonded very quickly. He taught us a lot about the Moroccan traditions and culture, whilst we listened to his amazing playlist of music. He's so easy-going, and was even willing to take time out of his schedule after the tour to have dinner with us on our last day!! A friend I'd definitely wish to see again.
