Adventures in Morocco


In December 2008-January 2009 we visited Morocco, with stops in Casablanca, Rabat and Fes. In Fes, we picked up a rental car and over the next ten days, drove through the High Atlas Mountains, visiting Ifrane, Azrou, Zaida, Midelt, Er Rachidia, Tinerhir, Boumaine-du-Dades, Ourazate, Ait Bendahou, Agdz, Nekob, Taliouine, Ouled Berhil, Taroudant, Imouzzer, Essaouira and Marrakesh.

We returned to Morocco in December 2009-January 2010. We flew in to Fes and visited Sefrou, before taking the train to Marrakesh. From there, we traveled south and visited Inezgane, Tiznit, Tafraoute, Mirleft and Sidi Ifni.
