๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Intro

Travelogue of a tour through Morocco in January 2011. Due to a spontaneous idea the flight and a hostel for Marrakech were booked cheap in November. On the spot we should finally see where we are going. The destination should be cheap, warm and culturally diverse. Unfortunately, the tour had to take place alone, which has certain advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, one does not have to pay attention to the sensitivities of someone, on the other hand, one cannot share great experiences and impressions.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 1 – Marrakech

Around 0730 public transport was used to get to the airport FKB. First tram, then tram again, then bus. Relatively cumbersome but without problems. The winter had settled now also in Baden and everywhere lay snow and of course it was cold. At check-in my backpack was 8.5 kg. So I could have taken something with me. But I didn’t need any more as it should turn out later. Around 0930 the plane took off for Girona. Cloud cover pierced and already times little sun again after long time see.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 2 – Marrakech

Around 0530 I was woken up by the muezin, who spread his message with an insane volume. Nevertheless I turned around and went to the roof terrace for breakfast around 0700. The view from there was not very spectacular and also the temperatures were not very high. Only the rising sunshine brought some warmth. For breakfast we had flatbread with all kinds of sweets. Two older Italians were also there and disappeared again. The roof terrace had an approx. 3 m x 3 m wide opening, which reached two floors to the ground floor. The building was thus open to the top. In order to be now armed against rain a plastic foil was stretched out as funnel in it, which ended in a hose and led off the water with rain.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 3 – Marrakech

The Muezin began again quite early with his daily work. But I didn’t care about that around 0600. Around 0730 I got up, after I had noticed how the English girls had gone away. I visited the roof terrace with nearly the same result as the day before, only the Italians were missing. So I took some pita bread and jam, not without consuming plenty of tea and cigarettes. Somehow nobody was awake at this time, although the hostel was quite well occupied. From the alleys I heard again the typical noise of the people, dealers and moped drivers. I went into the bathroom for a shower. This should be one of the few warm showers of the tour. Or at least permanently warm showers.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 4 – Essaouria

The morning it had lasted then nevertheless until approx. 0900 until I came from the bed. Did also nothing, since my bus should drive only against 1300 and I did not really know what I should look at now. So I got ready, grabbed my still not quite dry things from the terrace, recharged all my batteries and finally said goodbye to Maschud. I missed the obligatory breakfast at the Jeema this time. I went back north through the medina to the exit where the bus station is.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 5 – Agadir / Inezgane

I woke up around 0900. It was bitterly cold and the wind was still whistling through the holes. The sea was also loud. The set of laundry, which I had washed the evening before, was not dried at all because of the humidity at the sea. I went into the community shower and packed up afterwards my stuff and determined that the Digicam would have hardly longer electricity. With the computer it didn’t look any better. I cursed again on the socket and left the dirty chamber direction sun. I walked again along the city wall through the area that was warned in the planet, again towards the center of the medina and finally again towards the bus station, about 10 min outside the walls of the medina.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 6 – Sidi Ifni / Legzira

This time I woke up before sunrise. In the night it had become quite cold and I woke up from the eternal cough of a man, who would not make it much longer judging by the cough. I was content with a meager laundry and went with my stuff one floor down into an already opened cafe. Here I could enjoy again the decent Moroccan coffee which has a decent caffeine content. I was with my winter clothing on the way and nevertheless it was already quite cold. After the coffee I went to a shop and got some flat bread and cheese for the trip to Tiznit and on to Sidi Ifni.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 7 – Sidi Ifni / Legzira

I awoke around 0800 from the loud quake of the waves that hit the rocks in front of me. I freshened up, had slept very well and the evening pseudosalmonella attack was no longer felt. In the community shower there was enough warm water, so that I could warm up a little after the quite cool night, especially since nobody was to be seen further in the hotel and all the more not in the corridor. Of course there was no light in the shower, but I had candles with me. Additionally I showered a set of clothes, because with two sets of clothes I had to think ahead.
