Not very far from my country (Portugal) I found another world, another culture, another way of living. Morocco, land of contrasts, different cultures and religions, where you can see the inheritance of the Arab world, its architecture and traditions.

Not very far from my country (Portugal) I found another world, another culture, another way of living. Morocco, land of contrasts, different cultures and religions, where you can see the inheritance of the Arab world, its architecture and traditions.

However Morocco is today an easy “exotic” destination for great part of the Europe. And as such it has developed a form of tourism for masses without quality and preserving the essence of the culture, being busy showing the tourist only what he wants to see – charmers of serpents and fakirs.

On my trip to Morocco I drove around with a group of people by Jeep and quickly understood that the enchantment of this country was in its heart. The real interest of this land is outside the famous cities and inside the small villages where you can really see and feel the original and special people of Morocco.

The hospitality, affection and pleasantness are common. A smile is always there to welcome you. I had chance to dine on the desert sand. What a fantastic experience with the moon illuminating you while listening to the life-stories of people who live there.
Our arrival to the desert was be one of the most fantastic experiences of my life till now.

Me and the group arrived to our resting place during the nighttime and the most beautiful sky I have ever seen, was waiting for us, the prettiest stars and moonlight that any of us had ever seen, and we woke up the next morning with all the magnitude of the fine and soft dunes of the Sahara desert. And while looking out of the window you could see a blue turban of one Tuaregue on his camel – simply fantastic.
