  • Wrapping up my time in Morocco

    Wrapping up my time in Morocco

    Just last week I smashed my train travel record racking up 7.5 hours and yesterday I broke my bus record reaching Casablanca, or ‘Casa’ as the Moroccan’s would say, in a solid 6 hourer! I can also tell you that was my final journey in Morocco as I won’t, for several reasons, be spending any notable time […]

    Chefchaouen: Fifty shades of blue

    I’ve arrived at Chefchaouen; an instantly likeable and popular tourist destination.  Visitors seek out Chefchaouen due to its relaxed vibe, pleasant mountainous surroundings and spectacle that is all things blue.

Those two sentences I’d heard multiple times in Essaouira and […]

  • A bonkers day out at Paradise valley

    A bonkers day out at Paradise valley

    Having decided it was finally time for me to leave the relative tranquillity and calming ambience of Essaouira, I searched for and found a new destination. Instead of taking the obvious north east route to Marrakesh, I’ve headed further down south along the Atlantic coast as there are a couple of towns/villages I’ve been advised […]
