Before we went to Morocco, we talked about planning a trip to the Sahara desert, but the idea was quickly rejected out of hand since it’s a 10-hour long drive from Marrakech and it just didn’t seem manageable. BUT during our stay in the mountains, we were told that the Sahara was only about 120 miles away from our hotel, which was why we very spontaneously chose to drive to the desert on the outskirts of Morocco.
It was probably the best decision we took on this trip, because as you might have seen on Snapchat, we spent the day exploring the desert by ATV and then spend the night in a camp in the middle of no man’s land. It was the wildest experience to stay overnight in tents, have dinner and listen to authentic music in the middle of the desert. At night we considered the most beautiful night sky with the brightest stars, and there wasn’t far between shooting stars. I took a (y) picture of the night sky, which I intend to upload later this week.
