Meetings in Morocco

The best way to finish a season of being on the road as a tour leader, is to make a mini holiday for yourself. After my week at a surf camp, I came to Marrakesh to meet up with my colleagues for a couple of days of catching up. We only had a small group…

Morocco 2.0

Exactly one year ago I was in Morocco. I travelled through the North, was amazed, intrigued, annoyed and surprised by the life there, and came back with the idea I should one day head back to explore the South. I had no idea it would be this soon. I usually say that about places; ‘I…
