Maneuvering Marrakesh

Morocco Dreamtrip in Marrakesh

So today we began our vacation club’s Morocco Dreamtrip in Marrakesh.  My friend Suman and I loaded the bus at 8:30am with our new-found friends, Jimmi and Margit from Sweden and Nina and Brien, Americans who live in South Korea, among others.  Nina is originally Filipino, but due to Brien’s job and her resulting opportunities it is better for her to have a U.S. passport.

The Amazing Medina in Marrakesh, Morocco

UPDATE: Due to the recent 6.8 magnitude earthquake in Morocco, some of the places in this article may be impassable. Please support Morocco’s tourism sector in alternative ways if Marrakesh cannot accomodate you. Essaouira, Rabat, Casablanca and El Jadida are other places to consider.

Getting to Marrakesh

Despite not so good food on the plane, our we enjoyed timely and unventful travels to Marrakesh, Morocco. This is always nice with multiple connections and checked bags.  Our biggest delay occurred when we arrived at the very nice new terminal and our driver was not there to pick us up to take us to our riad in the Marrakesh medina!
