Desert Sojourns

As the plane dipped its wing the scattered lights of Marrakech slid into view. Banking hard, the jet pulled itself around and set up for its approach in the warm night. It felt like the sun set a long time ago but a faint yellow glow still clung to the horizon, past the black hills… Read More »

Excerpts from a Moroccan Holiday Diary

First Impressions of Marrakesh.  My first time in Africa and what a place – it is an assault on the senses. The narrow streets buzz with life as push bikes, motor scooters, cars and donkey carts all fight for space through the alley ways of the Medina in Marrakesh.

Sweet Mint Tea Flavoured Sahara

Me and my mom had five days we could spend for vacation. I looked at the map searching for the unique spot that wouldn’t be oceans away from home and then it hit me – the Sahara desert is just 5 hours flight away and is definitely one of the must-see places in the world.… Read More »

Transported to Another Place and Time

First off, I want to say that our whole experience with Authentic Morocco was great. Our trip would not have been the same without the experience you afforded us and I feel that the itinerary you created for us, based on what we said we were looking to experience, really allowed us to explore the… Read More »
