Next destination - Morocco

It has finally been decided. The destination of our this year's main vacation will be Morocco. An interesting and incredibly diverse country in North-western Africa.
I reserved airplane tickets just a couple of days ago. M. and I are going there for three weeks this October. This time it is going to be just ourselves and our backpacks - a new experience for us in this part of the world.

I can hardly wait! M. on the other hand isn't completely sure whether to be excited or maybe a bit worried about our plans. The feedback we have been getting from various people who had been to Morocco recently, is not completely positive. She would be happier if we chose an option more similar to our Egyptian Adventure last year. Nevertheless I am still pretty sure we made the right decision to go there and just try to enjoy the diversity of Morocco by ourselves.

We visited the Land of Pharaohs with Oskar Travel Agency. They obviously liked what I posted about the trip, because they have a link to my blog on their main page (unfortunately, their web page is only available in Slovenian).

No matter how nice it was to travel with them, this time we have decided to try such a trip on our own. You can look forward to a bunch of beautiful photos once again.

Borrowed from www.morocco-travel.com
So far I have been mostly browsing through the Lonely Planet Thorn Tree Travel Forum.
If you know any other useful web sources that could help a backpacker going to Morocco, feel free to share them with me.

Has it really been a year since Egypt. Wow! Morocco sounds exciting too.

Time really flies doesn't it?
It also seems like yesterday to me.

I am pretty sure it is going to be exciting. I am just hoping that in the end there will not be too much of excitement.

It may take me a while, but you'll definitely get to see another report after we come back.

Morocco will be a great spot to take shots. Enjoy.

Hi,
I have visited your blog and I found it quite interesting. But I am here to search cheap accomodation for me in a place like Jodapur as I will be visiting this particular place in India in the next month. Please can any one help me out? I will be glad to receive the response.

@Trade Port India:
I don't have a clue about that. However, perhaps a fellow blogger from India can help you out.
Take a look at his blog and try to contact him:

I hope this helps. :)

When I checked my trvel guide about Morrocco it said "DONT GO THERE" !!
So I went and found a whole new world. It was very interesting and great food.
