What a fascinating destination for writers, artists. lovers of adventure and the exotic
My experience in Morocco has evolved from first arriving as a tourist in 1986, to being a student in 2017 - when I stayed in Fes to study Moroccan Arabic or 'Darija', followed by 6-months in Fes (yes, it's probably my favourite city), and many, many weeks of exploring the Sahara.
More recently my small group tours in 2018 and 2019 have been an opportunity to share my love of this country with others.
It's an interesting bit of synchronicity that here in Sri Lanka, where I'm presently living, I've discovered a community of Moslems who self-identify as 'Maghrebi' - those coming from North Africa - specifically Morocco. There are many fascinating references to Moroccans in Sri Lanka ... the more one travels, huh ?
So, while my next small group tour to Morocco is simmering, I hope you enjoy these travel stories from Morocco, including my latest video roadtrip on YouTube, 'Yala' !

Looking for a little adventure?
Undertaking a camel journey between two of the three historic entry points into Morocco from the Sahara needs careful planning.
This recconnaisance trip with The Three Mohammeds was
a wonderful journey in its own right.
