Travel Itinerary: One Week in Morocco

Greetings everyone! This Easter break I’ll be spending one week backpacking through Morocco in Africa.

I’m going to be flying into Fez, where I’ll spend two days sightseeing before taking an overnight train to Marrakesh.

Once in Marrakesh I’ll be going on a 3 day/2 night tour of the Sahara Desert, visiting Ouarzazate and Merzouga. Highlights will include visits to the Atlas Mountains, desert gorges at Dades and Todra, a camel-back sunset trek, and Berber entertainment in an overnight desert camp.

Now I have a few ideas of what I’d like to see in Fez and Marrakesh as well, but we’ll see what actually happens when I get there. I’m just excited for an exotic new culture, with fantastic food and beautiful scenery. And as always, I can’t wait to share all my experiences with you, so expect a detailed report, including a price breakdown with budgeting tips. Until then! 😀
