Wales weekend

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 14 Jan 2011 | Views [485]

A three day weekend is too good an opportunity to pass up on some exploring, and so I decided to make the most of my time off and had back to Wales to see more of the country. I booked 2 nights in a lovely little B&B near the town of Cowbridge, ... Read more >

Last days in Marrakech

We rose early to catch a mini-van back to town, which then turned out to be an hour late, causing Khalid to panic a bit about us missing our bus. Luckily the main bus was also running on “Moroccan time” so we ended up arriving with plenty ... Read more >

After a much better sleep on thicker floor mattresses during which Ross said I talked in my sleep but luckily only said, “That’s cool”, we fuelled up with breakfast and headed off on our 6 hour trek through the Agouti Gorge. Apparently ... Read more >

After a 4 hour drive to the Rose Valley we sent our main bags in the van to our next stop while we set off on another trek up to our next mountain gite with smaller overnight bags. We started the trek with lunch by the river (always a good start!) ... Read more >

Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worse so we decided not to do the four hour hike to the Sidi Chamarouch shrine in order to arrive at the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou with enough daylight to check it out. This 'fortified city', or ksar, ... Read more >

Biking and hiking to our first mountain gite

MOROCCO | Sunday, 17 Oct 2010 | Views [596]

We had an early start (one of many) to catch a minivan out to the start of our bike ride into the mountains. The first leg was the worst (well it felt like it) with a massively long hill, but I was surprised at how I was able to keep going ... Read more >

I arrived in Marrkech around midday and made a poor effort at bargaining a taxi ride into town. I knew what it SHOULD cost and the taxi driver knew, but unfortunately they had a monopoly and I ended up with the group of them surrounding me and all ... Read more >

I forced myself out of bed early to have plenty of time at the train station in case there was any drama with the tickets (you never know with my luck!) but, apart from the expense, there was no trouble getting a train ticket to Madrid. Seems ... Read more >
