Izak, Loryn, myself and Albert (left) set off to Morocco late on Monday evening, 14 March 2011 on Iberian Airlines Flight IB 6050, unaware of the glorious time which awaited us. On the 15th, we were met by Jamal Ghannam, our driver for the next two weeks, who turned out to be an exceptional young man. He not only crept right into our hearts with his lovely personality and intelligent conversation, but also impressed us with his punctuality, cautious driving and personal attention to detail.
Our trip was organised by Jeff Wilson of “Morocco Tours”, an affiliate of the American-based company “Experience It Tours”. Jeff, together with Jamal, our tour guides and accommodation personnel, made sure that we indeed “experienced” Morocco. The trip was professionally planned and every expectation from our side exceeded.
“A country like Morocco defies description, is more than mere words can tell. One can of course draw up a list of essential facts. But no matter how exhaustive, can such data be anything more than an oversimplified and artificial document?” (The Golden Book of Morocco).
