Trip Report Tasty tagines and mobbed medinas - a Moroccan medley

Jump to last reply

Aside from one foray to Egypt, and one long ago visit to Mexico, all my travel has been to Europe and Asia (I live in the US). But I’d been considering a trip to Morocco for some time, and finally decided to combine Lisbon and Morocco for a trip last November (plus a little Paris and London at the end - I aim to see as much as I can per Transatlantic flight). I was looking forward to wandering the medinas, admiring the scenery and enjoying the food.

These days I prefer to travel independently, but I’m not really comfortable having a car, driver and guide for just one person (and the last time I did that the results weren’t good). I didn’t want to rely on public transport for the mountains and desert, so I combined solo travel (Rabat, Essaouira and Marrakesh) with a tour (Casablanca to Marrakesh) with Intrepid. I’d traveled with them before in Asia, and liked their itineraries.

I’m still working on the photos, but the first three galleries - Rabat to Fes - are up at kwilhelm.smugmug.com/Travel/667854
