Trip Report 4 Days in Morocco Video

Jump to last reply

Hello I thought I would share a video from Morocco that I shot 2 years ago and just put online.
here is the link:
https://vimeo.com/144072020

Some background for the video: My friend Matt and I got 2 49$ round trip tickets from NYC to Lisbon and decided to jump on it. We got to Lisbon but thought it would be cool to go to Morocco so we got 2 cheap tickets for a 4 day round trip[ and flew to Casablanca. Not being the most interesting city we knew that we needed to get to Marrakech and around 10pm that first day we found a guy who would rent us his car for 4 days. Done. We hit the highway at 12am and headed straight to Marrakech. We slept in the car that night and a hostel the next night as we explored the city on Mopeds before heading off to Agadir the next day. We skimmed past the industrialized city and headed north till we found a pull off that we could camp at. There was one lonely other car parked, a surfer from England who had been traveling for a year. The next day we got breakfast at a cafe and sped off to find surf. We ended up getting lunch at Essaouira and continuing to Safi arriving just in time for an evening surf session where I was able to borrow a locals board and get in the water. We skated a skatepark that night with a local from the water earlier and then headed north again to find a beach to camp on, which may or may not have been allowed. The next day we completed our nearly 800 mile trek just in time to return the car and board the plane.
It was by far one of the best trips I've ever been on, besides it being so short. Cant wait to get back, and please post any comments or questions you have!
