May 2, 2017 - Tangier to Martil

Monday 1st May Set off at lunchtime, everyone came to wave us bye. There are 3 mhomes plus a car & caravan. Completely coincidently, we met John and Barb, in a brand new Carthago, and Dave, with Land Rover+ caravan, last Thursday and we all got together for a drink which was lovely so we knew each other before leaving camp. So we left together and drove the short distance to the meeting place. Unbelievably, we broke down again. Can't believe it. We managed, after a very slow struggle to get to the meeting place. Ray the tour leader, and his...

Sep 18, 2015 - Tangiers

Friday, September 18th. No problem arriving at the Puerta for the ferry to Algiers, Morocco. It was a bit of a zoo after that. One of those hurry up and wait situations. Once the doors were open we had to wait in line for ticket taking then people flocked to the baggage X-ray machines, like the ones in the airports. I politely put my bag on to the belt after the person before me and someone actually reached over me to put his bag on top of mine. I loudly said, “Excuse me” and he looked at me as if I had just appeared out of thin air ”Oh...

Mon. 24 Nov.2014 Weather:-15 degrees/Sunny Tangier, Morocco 8:00 16:00 8h Even though it is only 15 degrees I find that I am warm enough just in shirt sleeves any more on and we start to sweat.

Nov 23, 2014 - On Way toTangier, Morocco

Sun. 23 Nov. 2014 Weather:-20 degrees/Sunny/Overast 3rd day at sea There was not much dancing done by us on board today because we only had to stand still in order to twist and sway from one side to the other—the only thing was that it was not done to the time of any music, we were at the mercy of the waves but thank goodness none of us was or has been sea-sick. We also have had no benefit of our balcony, as far as drying our delicates is concerned, because even though we are residing on deck 12 the sea spray is keeping it wet out there so...

Sep 7, 2014 - Morocco - a day out

It has been a hectic run here of late, but that is summer. We had a quiet afternoon early on to check out the bays here on Ibiza, visiting Cafe Del Mar to watch the sunset in Sant Anton. Then a few weeks later we had to do the run to Gibraltar to clear the Boat out of the EU. One night after work, I found a little restaurant in one of the old casements where I was quite enamoured of the bar chairs and the meal wasn’t too shabby either having been served on a piece of black laval rock. A group of us took off to see if we could get our...

Jan 9, 2013 - A new world

Just a quick update before leaving into the wild mountain of Morocco. I met Sam(the swiss cyclist) at the port in Algeciras. Sam has been on the road since April like me,on a different route,but a route that met with mine. We took the ferry across the strait of Gilbraltar together. It is always good to be 2 when you are about to step in another world. To adjust yourself with the lifestyle,culture and the feeling towards the residents. Big bad luck at first,our boat was 2hrs late and took longer than we thought to do its job. So we arrive in...

Nov 15, 2011 - My detour to Spain

After an early breakfast I found a great taxi driver who promised to drive me to Ceuta - about an hours drive. Ceuta is Spanish territory and located in "Morocco" right across from Gibraltar. I was a beautiful drive through some of the mountains in Atlas Mountains and great views of the Mediterranean Sea. The speed boat across to Algerciras was scheduled to depart at 10;30 and I was there in plenty of time. Well, the was a huge line-up of Moroccans trying to get into Spain, so the authorities are very thorough in their checking their...

Oct 2, 2011 - Morocco

We woke up early this morning to head across the Staits of Gibraltar to Morocco. What an experience this has been. We had a two hour trip to get to Tarifa where we caught the ferry. We were met by our local guide, Birdy! Seth, I have sent a picture of him - I think you need to update your wardrobe. We drove through the European district where the foreigners live quite nicely. After I rode a camel, we went to the Kasba which is the ancient walled city. In there is an old palace that is in terrible condition along with apartments for the...

Jul 3, 2011 - From sea to shining sea

Rick: You'd better hurry or you're gonna miss that plane. As I leave Chaouen, I see Omar, my Virgil on arrival a week ago. We chat about nothing in particular, but in a strange way it rounds off things nicely, acting like bookends for my time here. Chefchaouen has been quiet, though last night things came alive with a load of new people at the hostel, most of them sexy (female) British students, so that was a fun night on the square, though it would have been even more fun with some beer thrown in. Anyway, now I'm leaving, just when things...

Apr 19, 2011 - A visit to Asilah

We hire a taxi to take us along the coast for the day. Our first stop the post office to finally get rid of our parcel then to the Hercules Grotto – a bit of a tourist have. Eventually we reach a village called Asilah – a sea side village with lots of seafood restaurants – we indulge in a lovely lunch before walking through the old centre – most of the houses are painted white with blue doors or window shutters etc. As we make our way back to the taxi a guy selling some unusual paintings accosts us – we ask him if he has any representing...
