Hammam – naked, oiled and scrubbed raw

January 31, 2015

0

The Hammam we decided on is the oldest in Essaouira. According to the guide it’s a place that Orson Wells used while visiting this area. Dunno how factually correct that is. It took us some time to find it as the name of the road is spelt differently from the name on the map; which […]

Essaouira – magic cookies, viagra and fish

January 31, 2015

Essaouira is a beautiful. It has a wonderful classy charm about it. The harbour is filled with small battered fishing boats, men selling their freshly caught catch of the day and al fresco dining everywhere. The beach is sandy and if you walk away from the medina gates trendy cafe and bars are dotted along […]

El Jadida and another epic bus journey

January 19, 2015

Mr T and I spent the morning scoffing breakfast, using the internet before heading to the train station Casa Port. He was flying out of Rabat back to London and I was continuing my adventure further south to a town called El Jadida, an old Portuguese town, also known as Cite Portugaise. The idea of […]

Casablanca, a trumpet player and a narrowly missed love bite from a sleazy Moroccan

January 18, 2015

Rabat may well be the capital of Morocco but it lacks the buzz and charm of some of the other cities I have visited so far. There is an air of wanna-be sophistication but it doesn’t quite pull it off. The boulevards are wide, the roads jammed with small blue taxis and beat-up cars while […]

Meknes, Grand Taxis and Roman Ruins

January 13, 2015

I said farewell to Fez and loaded up my backpack. Now with a heavy rug I feel like a human mule. Running for a train with 25kilos on your back is not easy especially when that’s half my body weight!! I just managed to catch the train with seconds to spare. Thankfully a large Moroccan […]

Fez, brass knick-knacks and camel heads

January 13, 2015

1

So many friends had said to me how much fun I would have in Fez that I was psyched to get there and explore. It is a booming tourist destination with its ancient medina bursting with textiles, tanneries, pottery, camel meat with a head signposting the butchers and brass knick-knacks. It is the new Marrakech […]
