Posts labeled with Country ' Morocco'
Another traveling ArcticTropic friend, Bill Tubbs, of Bay Head NJ is currently in Morocco. He has taken some great pictures and we’re posting a few of them here. Above are the Medina walls in Essaouira. Essaouira is a fishing port few hundred klicks west of Marrakesh,where the desert meets the cold Atlantic Ocean. In summer it’s a great place to take a break from the 115 degree heat inland. Often the temperature doesn’t go above 70 !
Driving up the Atlas Mountains.
Morocco is a great adventure paradise because of the close proximity to Europe. Excellent surfing, mountain climbing (even some skiing) trekking the Western Sahara as well as the Rif and High Atlas mountains are all possible within a few days.
