We were in Morocco for 8 days in March 2007 and had a fabulous trip. I hope you will get a chance to spend a night in the Sahara desert - that was the highlight of our trip. Here is a link to my trip report (incl. pictures) if you are interested:


We started out with 5 nights in Barcelona so you may want to skip over that part.

Never did much with this blog apart from Morocco, though I live with good intentions:

I just returned from Morocco this weekend. If you have any specific questions about Marrakech or Essaouria, I would be happy to try to answer them.

Had a wonderful visit to Morocco in March and am very much looking forward to returning some day soon. You will have such a good time! The sights and sounds, scents and tastes, colors, and the quality of the light all add up to sensory overload, almost. Here are some photos of Marrakech, if you're interested in a preview: http://jmstudio.fotopic.net/c1477120.html And here's Essaouira, on the sea: http://jmstudio.fotopic.net/c1475634.html

Wow. First of all; Jgg...wow what a wonderful family you have!! I sooo enjoyed your journal AND your pics. You went lots of the places we are going so it was really interesting to see what they will look like.

By all means do travel w/ your kids...we did w/ our 2 boys. Now they love to travel and totally understand their mad mother.....even more than my hubby I think!!!

Kavey also a terrific journal. Honestly you have my mouth watering for some of that Moroccan food...it all sounded good to me. We will also be staying in Riad in Marrakesh and I sure hope we all get the rooms we booked!!!

Julia and Patti...all of your photos are worth Conde Nast! Is the blue really THAT blue!!!!! Truly stunning pics......the sahara...wow....all of the photos were just amazing....Jgg too!!! And I really liked the one of you all sitting on the dune w/ your backs to camera looking at the sun. Really a nice shot.

Ok....now I have ....17 more days to go...but hey..whos counting!!! Ha!

Again thank you all.......
