For the last few days I’ve been completely off line because Michael and I ventured off into the Moroccan desert. We rented a car (despite a few warnings) and had the best 8 and half hour drive listening to audio books and gawking at the scenery.
After we got to Merzouga- the desert in Morocco, we weren’t sure what to expect. What we found was a magical oasis in the desert and the loveliest at most comfortable tent I’ve ever had- we even had heaters! It was of the most memorable experiences of my life. Some highlights include: sunset camel rides through the desert, waking up at 3 am to the most incredible displays of stars, the fluffiest bed made warm with hot water bottles, the kind staff from around Morocco who prepared delicious dishes from their home country, and sandboarding down the steep hills.
I can’t quite put into words how wonderful the experience was, but you know I’ll try. I actually teared up as we were leaving, I just didn’t want it to end. If you’re ever in Morocco you MUST go to @merzouga_luxury_desert_camps__
