Date of Trip: May 2009
Hi, I love to travel. It makes me alive so I have been to many countries and many places. Recently, I just came back from my trip to Morocco and I absolutely love it. I have stayed few days in Marrakech, which was absolutely beautiful. The famous square of Djema El Fna coming alive at night. The streets full of souks leading from Djema El Fna square. The stunning Kotuibia mosque, the gardens, people.
The reason I am writting this report is because of our trip that we took to the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi into the Sahara desert. We have booked our trip with a company Your Morocco Tour 3days/4 nights and absolutely love it. Our guide and driver Abdou was fantastic. He made us welcome and was so happy all the time. He was not only our driver but he became our friend. He was always there for us to make sure that we are having a good time and we are well off taken care.
Visiting the sand dunes is so beautiful! Claiming one of the dunes and sitting there atop and watching the sun goes down is stunning. You see the different colors of the sand changing. Than the night sets in and the sky is full (I mean really full) of stars. You have the local Berbers sitting with us around the fire and singing and playing their drums. It was such a romantic night out. I want to warn you that riding the camels is not that easy. After couple hours you do feel tired and prefer to walk. But it is good to try it. Also driving through the sand dunes is so much fun. Just make sure you are with the right guide, it is so easy to get lost.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you Your Morocco Tour and Abdou, our driver, for the fantastic trip. It was one of the best trip I took. Thank you, Chukran (as Abdou taught us in Arabic). We hope too see you soon. Inchalah. Amanda
