Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Morocco is so rich in different things, I would defenitely recommend staying there for more than 3 weeks. Also we studies to travel by train and boat but unfortunately the costs were redicolous compared to the subsidized aviation.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    We rented a car and on the road we simotaneously burst our tires on the right side by evading a crash with another car that was driving in the middle of the road.5 minutes after the accident, somebody with a tuk -tuk like vehicle stopped and brought us a new tire after 20 minutes, in the middle of nowwhere. That's practical thinking and hospitality.

  • How was the food?

    Don't remember the name but it was a little sandwich restaurant in Tamraght which served really good sandwiches with fries and was not on the main road.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Go with a camper and spend a lot of time there.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Transportation in Morocco works better than in Germany. Usually you would take the bus. And if there are no buses there are collective taxis waiting. These wait until all the seats are full and bring you to the desired destination. This is way more economical and ecological than the usual way.
