Another favorite place in Africa that Bill and I have been to many times, is Morocco. It is a pragmatic, hospitable and frienly country full of wonderous beauty. I am planning a two week sojourn to Morocco in March of 2024. We need to go there before it gets too hot, but after the snow melts in the Atlas Mountains so we can travel through them and see sights to the South of the mountains.
We will fly into Casablanca where we will spend our first night at the Hyatt Regency. From there we will travel by luxury bus with our guide to the city of Chefchaouene, known as the Blue City of Morocco. We will spend one night there then travel to Fez where we will spend two nights. While in Fez we will visit the midieval medina, see a traditional house, visit a tannery at work where you will have the opportunity to purchase something in leather.
If the snows are melted in the Atlas Mountains, we will travel to Ait Benhaddou where many well known movies were filmed, where we will spend one night.
We will them motor on to the famous city of Marrakesh where will stay at La Maison Arabe, a wonderful hotel that we have stayed in many times.
Marrakesh is full of life very colorful. We will spend three nights there. We will explore Marrakesh and also have a day excursion into the Ourika Valley on the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, where we will visit a Moroccan family. This was one of the highlights of our last trip to Morocco.
Finally, back to Casablanca to the Hyatt Regency Hotel prior to our departure.
