Nov 26, 2014 - Rabat on atlantic coast

I use my main camera the most and some days I forgot to take pictures with my phone whose I share photos from.I did not succeed to move pictures from the camera to the phone through my PC even if O getto the end of the process. In Rabat I focused more on the kasbah which is very big and well kept. The last 3 days I had rain during the night so I know now the van is waterproof. However days were dry and warm. So I get back to summer season wearing short pants, tshirt and 'babouch'.And I like it. No real people crossing even if many people...

Mar 4, 2013 - Dakhla, Morocco

I have tried to add the town I am in at the moment, Dakhla, to the map, but it's so isolated that it can't be found by this website. It was certainly a long way down through miles and miles of desert, and have to say that I am pretty knackered now. It's going to be another early start tomorrow as I make my way finally to Mauritania, whereby I intend to spend the day at the second city, Nouadhibou, which is just a couple of hours across the border. No public transport goes there so I have arranged for a taxi to take me ( 35 euros for the 8...

Mar 2, 2013 - morocco

Well I managed to arrive in Morocco safe and sound after a night sleeping in Milan airport, where I was pretty much the only person there. Given that I managed next to no sleep, I was pretty well knackered when I finally arrived in Casablanca at eleven in the morning, and decided that I would spend a day there before catching the train the following day to Rabat, from where I am writing this. Didn't actually take any photos of "Casa" as I barely left my room due to copious amounts of sleep. Arrived in the capital, Rabat, on Thursday and...

Nov 26, 2011 - Final Wrap

We arrived home safely last Saturday having left Cairo just before the latest protests started there. So now it is time to wrap up our trip and select our best or most representative photos. During our trip we had some extraordinary wildlife experiences in southern and central Africa, were surprised by the culture, landscape and life in Ethiopia, saw some of the amazing history of ancient Egypt and were fascinated by the diversity of Morocco. We agreed that the best experience was the visit to the mountain gorillas in Rwanda - a truly...

Nov 7, 2011 - The Great Eid Adventure

Warning!!!! This story and pictures is not for the squeamish of heart and stomach!. Reader discretion advised!!! During the night we were kept up a lot by an incessantly barking dog! By morning Brian was ready to sacrifice the dog instead of the sheep! It was a bright, sunny day and going to be 18 degrees C; breakfast was the same as yesterday: sweet croissants, baguette style bread with marmalade, small containers with yogurt and coffee and tea. At 10:20am we loaded our gear into a minibus and headed for the train station to catch the...

Nov 6, 2011 - Morocco

The final leg of our journey has been 11 days in Morocco before we head home via Cairo and Singapore The latest leg of our journey We flew into Casablanca from Cairo and were picked up by a driver who took us around Morocco. From Casablanca we headed east on a tollway along the coast to Rabat. After one night there we continued on to Fes for two nights including a drive to see the Roman ruins at Volubilis and then Meknes, one of the former capitals of Morocco. From there we headed south through the Atlas Mountains to the edge of the Sahara...

Oct 31, 2010 - Rabat

Today we drove from Tangier to Rabat, which is the nation’s capital. The drive was long and generally uninteresting. The new part of the city and the approach to it is well laid out with wide roads which are divided down the center with a wide island with palm trees, grass and plantings. It makes a very nice impression. Like elsewhere, there is a lot of new construction going on and this part of the city looks impressive with an exotic architectural flavor. Our riad was in the older part of the city, in the medina. Here the streets are...

May 10, 2010 - My Typical Work Day

صباح الخير! Good morning! I hope you've all been well over the past few weeks. I'm sorry in advance for the brevity of this note; I've just arrived at work (though as per usual, everyone else is on Moroccan time -- about thirty minutes behind the clock), so I'll have to be going soon. I have had several of you ask what an average day looks like for me here, though, so now that I'm settled in, I'll do my best to walk you through my general schedule. Each morning, I wake up at a bright and early seven am to get ready. I have to light the...

Apr 12, 2010 - Morocco-The Arrival

le 7 avril, 2010 April 7, 2010 مساء الخير! Bonsoir! Good Evening! Welcome to the first chapter of the blog where I'll be sharing with you some of what I anticipate will be a series of many exciting adventures over the course of the next four months. I'm also hoping this will serve as my main way of keeping in touch with my friends and family (you), so please, at any time, feel free to post any questions, comments or concerns (to my loving parents with a high propensity to worry, please minimize the latter :) ) I'm actually preparing this...

Jul 27, 2008 - Rabat, Morocco

July 27 2008 This morning’s breakfast was in the dining room of the Hotel Majestic in Meknes. The dining room is dark and decorated in the original 1930s motif with some minor touch ups here and there. The food was our staple of bread, butter, jam, cheese, and coffee. It was a enjoyable just looking around at the décor and picking out those items that were not original or poor imitations. Once the bread was gone, we climbed 2 flights back to our room and finished packing our bags. When we dropped the key off at the desk, I double checked...

Feb 20, 2008 - Once upon a time in Africa!

Hello all! I apologize that I haven't sent an update lately- all of this traveling has been keeping me quite busy! In the next few posts I will try to provide substantial updates... The weekend of February 15-17, I ventured South to the grand continent of Africa! Morocco is known for having a little bit of a questionable reputation, and so my friends and I relied upon a tour company to show us the sights. We arrived via ferry in Tangier, Morocco on Friday morning, and traveled by bus to the capital city of Rabat. In Rabat, we perused the...

Jan 3, 2008 - Rabat

If yesterday was a wet Wednesday it was nothing compared to wet and windy Thursday. It started off slightly grey and damp which was fine for the walk up to Institut Pasteur early this morning. As medical matters go that was one of the least painless and friendly ones I've ever had, the doctors English was only marginally better than my French but she was one of the jolliest people I've met. 10 minutes and I was done, a hole in my arm and a Carte Jaune in my pocket. It was also a seventh of the UK price. I got back so early that I realised...
