So many have been inquiring about Morocco these past years. I haven’t been back since 1992 so I guess it’s about that time. Before I get started I must say, those that wanted Vietnam again; it’s about maxed out. Last night when I closed my eyes, I was thinking gee, what happened to all those that had expressed an interest in Vietnam but when I opened my eyes this morning up popped 5 more. That being said, Kat’s Tailor Made Vietnam will be in full effect April 2019.
Marseille is so lovely and we had such a wonderful time, I will return with 5 nights there and 4 nights in Morocco. I know you must have questions so I will give you a heads up. The weather in October in Marseille should be 60s-70’s, 6 hrs of sunshine, some rain but so what it rained last week, nothing major though. Marrakech in the 80’s with 8 hrs of sunshine. Marseille is just a mere 2+ hrs flight from Marrakech who has a lovely new airport terminal. Morocco; such a mystery surrounds it.
What kind of accommodations in Marrakech? Riad or Hotel? I haven’t quite decided. There is a lovely black owned property but I’m not really feeling it. I’d rather be closer to the town center.
Here are some terms to become familiar with. You know there will be so much more that I will share with those that join me. The tour size will be limited to 16. There are already 7 on board. Remember, you snooze, you lose.
Riad – The house must have a garden, divided into quarters.
Kasbah – Several structures behind a defensive wall, was a place for the local leader to live and a defense when a city was under attack.
Medina – Old part of a town. Typically walled, contains narrow streets, fountains, palaces and mosques.
Interested parties, let me hear from you. Space is limited. On this one; by the time rates are announced, we will more than likely be sold out.
Until next time,
