๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2015 Morocco – Day 12 – Merzouga / Ait Ibriren (Dades Gorge)

After breakfast we paid our bill and set off towards Dades Gorge. After careful consideration from the evening before, this was the only remaining option. To drive back on the same route would be the last option. After Fes and then further along the Atlantic back to Marrakech it didn’t promise to be very great, because Fes is possibly worse than ales Marrakech as far as the annoying people are concerned and we were of the opinion that we didn’t want to see a city that would also be similar to Marrakech. Between Fez and Marrakech there would have been nothing to see according to our information. Sure there would have been a lot to see on the route, but we had no information.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2015 Morocco – Day 13 – Ait Ibriren (Dades Gorge)

The night at the hotel had been quite comfortable. Not too cold and not too warm. We had to turn on the heating in the evening but in the night the temperatures were just right. In the hotel we had not booked breakfast and therefore we drove with the car further in the direction of the gorge. Before we had already decided to stay another day here. After some time driving with attractive serpentines in the valley we reached a somewhat larger city. We just wanted to have breakfast and chose a quite frequented coffee. Everything was full with locals, because somehow it was also market day. We ordered the usual and the waiter made arrangements to set a table for us. So really with tablecloth and cutlery.

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‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ 2010 Barcelona – Day 1

I woke up around 0300. Actually I first had to get up around 0500, the worse were the following two hours, which I had spent on one side, then throwing on the other side in bed to wake up sometime and look at the clock. 0456 that’s the way it always comes, it was clear. Coffee made and terribly trembled, because the heating only starts automatically around 0600. A short look in front of the door brought the result that it was not white outside as expected. On the evening before it had started to snow, which luckily did not remain, because the temperature was about 0ยฐ. Something in the net surfed and on Telepolis the newest messages read. With DE it goes further and further downhill. Then the morning toilet finished, read on and packed my stuff into the bigger AMI backpack. Heaters set to 10ยฐC again, time to get off to the train. Two stations from Sรถllingen station to Berghausen Stadium, where Peter my nice wise driver was already waiting for me.

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฌ 2009 Egypt – Day 1 – Cairo

Sphinx und Pyramiden in Gizah, ร„gypten

Actually this trip had been planned differently, but R. jumped in to briefly explore Egypt. The flight to Cairo departed around 0100 from Berlin Tempelhof airport, where we had parked the car somewhere nearby. That was of course quite a stupid time for a flight to get somewhere. The flight lasted about 4 hours and went over Eastern Europe and then always along the Nile. Although it was dark, it looked quite interesting from above with all the lights and roads. The entry procedure consisted of some fee, the delivery of a photo and something that was attached to the perso. Outside we were picked up by someone and taken to the hotel. On the drive through the whole of Cairo one saw again and again entrenched guards on the streets and at the corners.
