Usual truck load… Pictures from Marrakech.. ..Marrakech.. ..Marrakech.. ..Marrakech.. ..Marrakech.. ..Marrakech.. ..Marrakech.. ..Marrakech.. Leaving Marrakech, towards Tizi N’Tichka I recommend: after the pass, turn left towards Telouet, Ait Ben Haddou.. wonderful, but watch out the weather… if it rains forget it… Ait Ben Haddou Towards Taliouine Taliouine: buy safran From Taliouine to Tafraoute… the road get’s nasty…just has been washed out by the river …but anyway, I went through with my fully load GS and with wife as pillion… Just wonderful to look at and drive … Towards Tafroute… A must in Tafroute: Ait Mansour oasis Heading back to Tafroute Watch out: from Tafroute there is a new route Afla Ighir,Azgour, Issafn, Tata, which is not on the Michelin map 2012 Glimpses of desert… and back through the desert. Temperature is managable: 35 degrees and dry Foum Zguid Vallee’ du Draa towards Zagora At 6pm, students leave the school A must in Zagora: 52 days to Timbuktu Crossing a little river.. Rissani Preparing for the piste to Auberge Café du Sud… I can only recommend it… wonderful At Auberge Café du Sud…in In Erg Chebbi In Erg Chebbi Wow… Well, one of the few pictures together … Incredibly, we got rain in the desert ! What a dinner… and there is a pool too.. Well, sorry, but we meet this German several times on the rout… but I cannot remember his name…just write me in case you are seeing you in the picture… Preparing for a hell ride… and these two will be our engines for the next two days…hell, what a nightmare…afterwards remark: I prefer to walk! Unaware on how uncomfortable a Camelus dromedarius can be… Heading towards our camp in the desert where we will sleep a night The view is just worth the suffering… Amazing…desert A moment of rest during sunset Sunset in Erg Chebbi desert Exhausted: couldn’t barely move my legs anymore…not to speak about my back. Moreover, a dromedar is as uncomfortable as a ship in a storm… Nightlife in the desert camp Sunrise in Erg Chebbi desert ……after too few hours of sleep I’m wondering about how much I will suffer for the way back… Happy to be on the bike again!!! Ooopppss, sand storm, needed to follow my GPS with full zoom to get back on the road. Towards Todra Gorges Some Swiss we meet several times… Todra Gorges Towards Boumalne Dades, then Gorges Dades Our hotel on the top of Gorges of Dades A must and picture you will find everywhere about Dades Gorge Our hotel on the top of the Dades gorge A Swiss pair arriving with an old sidecar.. (drums as brakes…) Best ride: from Gorges Dades, M’Semrir, Agoudal to Imilchil. Off-road Some watering… just be sure not to go there if it was raining or there is high risk of rain.. Nice scenario: getting up from Dades gorges to Agoudal On top… 2916m high pass No one around… and a long way towards Agoudal This boy run towards us from far away and just asked for food. We gave him all the food we had with us. If you hit rain here you camp here for quite a while…in the mud Wonderful lonely valley Incredible: a boy on a bicycle … too big for him Just Wonderful … Children always welcome you From Agoudal towards Imilchil… Dinner at Imilchil… too much Imilchil Towards Tounfit. Nice valley Hotel? No thank you, we have a tend Unclear to us why they dry the clothes on the wall… A joke: dangerous turn…maybe because there’s something else on the road… Hell, something went wrong. After 110km there is no road anymore. Just washed away by the river…. see next picture. Uff, turning this heavy machine wasn’t so easy.. Luckely, people coming towards us gave us a hint to find another road to Tounfit. Great, wonderfully new! Not for long… another river crossing… Tounfit Wanted to go to the Jaffar circle, but was feeling sick… so headed towards Boumia – Ifrane- Meknes Ifrane, what a difference. didn’t like it Meknes Meknes Unhappy. I spend 1 day in the hotel with fever, stomach issues of various kind..looked as I were hit harshly several times by a pole…. Ok, no time for rest: we need to go. This time, we planned to go through the RIF mountains, from Meknes- Fes, Ketama, Issaguen, Bab Berred, to Chefchaouen. If you do not know about the RIF mountains, just let me say: it’s the heaven of canabis… Everywhere canabis, even on the road border I recommend: just don’t stop… Uff, went over the RIF without too much issues… Chefchaouen, lovely Tanger Tanger Tanger Med.. our ferry On ferry, Tangier – Livorno (2 days) Short stop in Barcelona Happy back at home… That’s it, folks.
