Waves of invasions and subsequent colonization of Morocco by Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Portuguese, French and Spanish all left behind cultural remnants which have been woven into the tapestry of a country I have wanted to visit for a long time. These layers, together with the diversity of Moroccan ecosystems and climate zones (Mediterranean marine, high mountains to Sahara desert) have resulted in a fusion found nowhere else – one I am looking forward to exploring.
I leave tomorrow for my first destination Casablanca. The first day will be spent exploring the city’s markets, mosques and food with a private guide before I meet up with the rest of my group and we depart for Fes. As always, I will be blogging throughout the trip (Internet dependent). Post links will appear on my FB page. Or if you wish you can access the blog directly at http://www.travelswithanne.ca
For those of you interested in following my route I have included a map. I look forward to sharing my journey with you.
