Week 3 Having left quite a good campsite in Fes, we stopped at an unusual site in Azrou which had been built by a Saudi sheik and looked like something from Disneyland! Apparently the apartments alongside the site are to be used for holiday breaks for orphans but were not open yet. The next stage of our journey took us through a very barren landscape leaving the green and fertile land behind. Everywhere we go there are happy, smiling children waving at us - the adults are not quite as demonstrative but many are pleased to greet us, mainly in French. We eventually arrived at a campsite at the Source Bleu de Meski. It sounded like an exotic oasis resort which it may have been in the 1950's but now it is very rundown and the ... read more

Africa » Morocco » Fès-Boulemane » Fes March 12th 2014

Week 2 (continued) Next stop – wild camping near Volubilis. We pulled into an area of woodland where we stayed the night. The local villagers passed through day and night with herds of cattle and sheep and two shepherds acted as our 'guardians' for the night. We cooked baked potatoes on an open fire and enjoyed a few drinks together. The following morning we visited Volubilis – it was strange to find the remains of a Roman town in the Moroccan countryside! From there we moved on to Meknes, our largest town so far, where we took a tour around the sights on a horse drawn carriage with some of our fellow campers. It was 32 degrees, the hottest day so far, but thankfully it was quite shaded in the souk. Our next destination was Fes ... read more

Africa » Morocco » Tangier-Tétouan » Chefchaouen March 10th 2014

Week 2 Found the truck stop OK and met our fellow travellers, only four other motorhomes so quite a manageable group size. The ferry crossing from Algeciras to Tangier Med was very calm thank goodness. We managed to arrive in one piece and had completed our paperwork correctly – there is a lot of red tape as we had to re-register the motorhome for our stay as well as fill in our details on umpteen forms. The northern part of Morocco was quite a surprise as it is very mountainous and green! Our first stay was at Motril on the coast, the beach and promenade are quite pristine but the same can't be said for the campsite. It was absolutely packed with motorhomes on every available space, mostly from France, obviously no fire regulations here. From ... read more
