    Hi everyone,

    It's that time of year again :thumb: we are on our way, back to Morocco, someone has to do it :Wink:.

    We are sailing from Portsmouth to Santander in the morning, should sail across to Tangier Med Friday/Saturday, all being well.

    First stop Moulay Bousselham, then Marrakech, Agadir and Sidi Ifni, we hope to go further south this trip, we shall see, anything can happen.

    Updates and photo's will follow.

    Sue :Tongue1: & Dave :Cool:

    Have a safe trip south, we may see you down there, not sure if going via Portugal or doing Portugal on the way back.

    Enjoy yourselves.

    Hi Alan & Val

    We felt the same last year :Mellow:, and here we go again. :thumb:

    We are only stopping off in Agadir for fuel and supplies at the Metro (cash and carry) then we are heading for camping Solymar in Sidi Ifni where we will probably stay over Christmas.

    Hope to see you somewhere out there.

    Sue :Tongue1: & Dave :Cool:

    I am sure like yourselves we have no ‘set’ plans. We have loads of ideas though :Rofl1::Rofl1: Would like to park up at Legzira before Sidni Ifni, if we go further south to the desert Camping Complex Fort Bou, apparently it is in the middle of nowhere....

    Will stay in contact via the forum and look forward to meeting at some point – you must both be so excited to be starting your trip tomorrow!

    We're planning a return to Morocco from late Jan/early Feb to the Anti Atlas and down south, which we missed out on our 'grand circuit' at the beginning of this year. Fort Bou sounds intriguing. Does anyone have info on the roads from Sidi Ifni or Guelmin? On googlemap there doesn't seem to be much marked away from the N12. Is the P1901 sealed? :Smile::Smile::Smile:

    In Morocco

    We are now in Moulay Bousselham, arrived aroud 1pm, It started raining on the ferry across, and hasn't stopped much, it's mainly "that fine rain that's wets you through":RollEyes: it's supposed to be better on Sunday.

    Just to let everyone know, you cannot park overnight on the Lidl car park anymore, the police move you on as soon as Lidl closes, but there is a large car park 2 mins away behind Mercadona, if you get your tickets from Carlos they will direct you.

    The ferry prices are the same as last year 200euro's plus 20 if you are towing.

    The Ferry terminal improvements at Algeciras are nearly complete, and the same applies to Tangier Med.

    The exchange rate at the port today was £1 = 12.94 dh, Carlos had 1 euro = 10.50 dh and at the port it was 1 euro = 10.90 dh

    We have some friends that visited Fort Bou last year and they were very disappointed, but everyone is different.

    Will keep you posted,

    Sue :Tongue1:& Dave :Cool:

    Sidi Ifni

    It stopped raining on Sunday and we have not seen a drop (rain that is) since.:Blush:

    We are now in Sidi Ifni,arrived here at a very quiet Camping Solymar around 4.30 this afternoon. :Eek!:

    It looks like the new campsite next door is almost ready for opening.

    Not had time to explore yet, :Wacko:photo's and more updates to follow.

    Still quite warm 14.7c not bad for 9.30 pm in November :RollEyes:

    I thought I had worked it out just right last year. After filling up with diesel on route for the return ferry I had 3Dh left - yes, THREE Dirhams! :thumb:
    Then I realised I had one more toll booth to go through on the motorway! Feck! :Eeek:
    Fortunately the last toll on the motorway takes credit cards - apparently the only one in Morocco to do so :thumb:
    So I've got no notes From last trip Steve, I'll just have to get all new ones when I get there. :Smile:
