Hello Marrakesh! Are You Ready To Rock?!.
It is week 6.5 of the Hazy Shade of Autumn Tour and for the next 10 days (starting tomorrow) we will be visiting Morocco, in particular Marrakesh and Chefchaouen.
We have partnered with Low Cost Holidays for a five day adventure in Marrakesh, where we will be riding camels, comparing a resort hotel versus a traditional Riad and putting our bartering skills into action during a market charity challenge, in which we will be given a list of items needed by a local charity and we will see how much stuff we can get for $100. While I’m not much of a haggler (hopefully I can hone my skills a bit), I have a feeling that the vendors won’t know what hit them when Beth and Ben Franklin join forces.
When our “Tour Plane,” which goes by the name of Easy Jet, touches down tomorrow afternoon in Morocco, it will mark our third continent, not counting North America, on this trip. There have been a lot of first on this tour, but this may be the biggest yet.
Honestly, I have no idea what to expect, aside from the images I’ve conjured up from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s playful Marrakesh Express. I’ve drooled over the photos of our accommodations on Low Cost Holiday’s online site, but I still can’t wrap my head around what the scene will be like. I guess now might be a good time to open up our guide book we bought in Greece.
Following our days in Marrakesh, we will make our way to Chefchaouen, a walled city known for its blue color. Like Morocco itself, this is one of Beth’s dream destinations, and now, after hearing her talk about it, one of mine too. The photos coming out of the town are striking and I can’t wait to get into the heart of it.
Our time in Morocco also marks the first time Beth and I will be on the road for major holiday. As America and our families celebrate Thanksgiving, we will be in Tangiers celebrating in our own way, what that entails, I have no idea, but it will surely be an adventure.
