an unforgettable journey
From Marrakesh to the gateway to the desert
Moroccan High Atlas
and finally the door of the desert
I visited Africa for the first time, crossing Morocco and its beauties. A simply unforgettable journey, in the colors, flavors and splendid landscapes.
The souks of Marrakech are simply mesmerizing. A whirlwind of colors and flavors. The magnificent Tajine of beef or vegetables, and spices with a thousand flavors. The cuisine of Morocco simply won me over.
After three days in Marrakech we set off towards Merzouga, at the gateway to the desert. We reached the apex of the Atlas at Tizin Tichka, then descended and up to Ouarzazete and the magnificent Ait Ben Haddou.
After crossing the Desert Gate in Erfoud, our guide welcomed us in Hassilabied and together we left for our camp where we would then spend the night. Both day and night, the colors of the Sahara Desert are truly out of the ordinary and will stay with me forever.
