15 Apr Morocco – April 2015
A wonderfully diverse country. We really wanted to tour around Morocco, as there is so much to see and do. We started in Marrakech – what a city! Our kids first visit to Africa and so culturally different to anything they have experience before. I loved the vibrancy, sounds and tastes. We stayed at a riad in the medina and everyone was so welcoming and helpful (the hand-drawn map from our riad manager was the only way we found our way back!) Next we went to the foothills of the Atlas Mountains to go horse-riding and zip-wiring at Terres d’Amanar. There are so many activities there you could stay a lot longer, but after 2 days we were off to the coast to the lagoon town of Oualidia. It is a beautiful place and we had a very relaxing stay at La Diouana where we were very well looked after by Abdillah and Fatima who cooked for us even though our French only stretched to basis requests. The lagoon and beaches keep us happy for the whole week.
