Sunrise in the Sahara Desert

My trip to Morocco has came to an end, it was surprisingly wonderful and I had some of the most unforgettable moments of my life.

My family and I took a trip from Marrakesh to Zagora, a place close to the Sahara desert. It was an extremely long drive, we saw many interesting things during our journey: the constant change of the landscape – from forest to rocky ragged mountains, to ancient villages in the valley to sandy grounds. I definitely felt the increasing temperature as we drove closer and closer to the desert.
We arrived at the desert at sunset after an hour and half camel ride to our ‘hotel‘ of the night, that being the camps provided by the local. I’ve never been a fan of camping nor have I ever camped in my life, admittedly I was pretty wary of the idea of spending one night in the desert. To my surprise, however, the camp site was well kept, four beds were provided in each with washing facilities plus a toilet that flushes (sometimes we take these things for granted). The evening ended with a rather exceptional meal (probably much better than what you would normally expect the locals to provide in the desert), the main dish was one of Moroccans’ favourite – Beef Tajine served with Moroccan bread! ( beef stew with potatoes/pepper/courgette/olives). Then… we danced the night away around the camp fire!

Is Rapunzel real then?… ”No, don’t be silly” might be a common reply! Hey, but I’m going to ask you think of your answer again this time… because I saw plenty of ”Rapunzel” this summer and even with longer hair!

Beauty of San Francisco

I remember how ”Save Me San Francisco” by Trains has always been one of my favourite songs, luckily this time last year I finally had a chance to experience the beauty of San Francisco! 😀

Renowned for its rolling steep hills, cool summers, fog. All of which marked a stark contrast to Los Angeles where I traveled from and made me realise how ill prepared I was at packing for this trip. Yeah, I only brought one thin blazer and the rest consisted of shorts and t-shirt. Basically I had nothing to keep me warm for the early mornings of San Francisco. The weather reminded me of the typical Welsh weather, foggy, chilly then some sunshine in the afternoon. But of course, San Francisco is about 100 times more fun ;)! Our tour guide Will told us how most people in SF are skinny, well let me tell you, it is not a surprise when you have to walk up all of those steep hills just to get a croissant for breakfast! haha.
