So, I am getting ready to announce my next Moroccan adventure but find myself facing a bit of a dilemma.
There are two major draws on my tours: 1- the blue city of Chefchaouen and 2-The dunes of Merzouga.
These two places are beautiful, magical, amazing. They in and of themselves could make a tour. From experience however they just don’t fit within the same tour, they would involve too much travel, too much running around. So, I have two potential itineraries and need to pick one. In other words, I need your help.
Itinerary 1: A more relaxed pace, 8 days in total, land in Fes, Head to Chefchaouen for 3 leisurely days, comfortably explore the surroundings for another 3 (mountains, sea), back to Fes.
Itinerary 2: 8 days, land in Marrakech, 1 day in the valley of Kasbahs, 2 days in the dunes, 1 day in the valley of the Ounila, 2 days in the Atlas Mountains, back to Marrakech.
So, which one is it?
Life is a bit of a high speed bullet train on a rollercoaster track these days. Lots happening. Lots of changes. All good. There hasn’t been much of an opportunity to do any landscapes lately (it is also the crappiest time of the year right now to do so…). But stay tuned, there will be some good stuff down the pipeline soon. In the meantime, you can always check some of the cool stuff Amanda and I have been brewing over at doublespace: http://doublespacephoto.com/blog/checkered-lights/.
This, by the way, is an image I made in Gaudi’s famed Casa Battlo in Barcelona. A must-see despite the crazy crowds. I managed to find a little calm before other visitors stormed in.
As promised yesterday, today is Michelle’s turn to shine with her Moroccan crop of photographs. Again, thank you Stephanie and Michelle for coming along for the ride and for generously accepting to be featured here!
I am very pleased to announce that I will be offering a new photographic adventure to Morocco in 2012. This will not be your run-of-the-mill tour that takes you from one bus stop to the other on the main touristic road. Rather, I have carefully designed this adventure to take the road less travelled and to show you some of the most amazing sights this country has to offer. This is not a fast-paced tour that puts quantity ahead of quality. I deliberately chose to reduce the number of places we visit to take our time, to give you ample opportunity to take in the atmosphere of the places we will be visiting. The adventure, The Rockin’ the Kasbah Tour, will take place from May 19-29, 2012 and will concentrate on the southern delights of the land from mountain to desert.
