    Some short vids we took on some of the places
    The drive to Aufous


    whilst driving to Figuig we passed Bouanane which borders with Algeria, you drive along side the baracade they have built


    This is a vid we took of Figuig, we had a coffee on the veranda over looking Algeria thru the palmerie

    We are now at Bouarfa, in what appears to be another military town, very large and very modern, lots of shops, market etc,
    We are at Hotel Climat du Maroc parked on the tennis court, we were on our own but have been joined by a cpl of French. we’ve only seen an handful of vans over this way, you also get use of the hotel shower and ehu thrown in, and it also has a bar,
    Tomorrow we head north on the N17 towards Oujda, then along the N16 and med coast.

    The above pics and vid are Saidia seems you need to upload back to front on this site ?



    EC122731-C450-4873-A0A6-9DAF7C167FAD.jpeg 8D76B9CC-0153-456F-B4EA-F5C4534EE4E9.jpeg F237FB15-0721-4839-B11F-E2E7D1A5742A.jpeg update: From Bouarfa we headed to Ain Benimather along the N17 the road is brand new to Tendrara then it’s in good nick to Ain Benimather, the wind was blowing the Saharan sand all over. note to self put external covers on over fridge etc

    we wild camped outside of the town next to a mosque for travellers, there’s a spring water fountain and toilets. there was two other french vans there.
    The day after we headed to Marjane in Oujda and onto Saidia another border town with Algeria, very modern with a marina and lots of apartments and bars and restaurants. my guess is it’s very busy here in the summer

    Seems you're the only Funster left in Morocco Marc! Seen any other Brits?

    Wonder what happened to the OP? Hardly ever heard from them after they had crossed over to Tangier.

    Hi Terry, yes seems i’m on my lonesome as far as funsters go, yes the op and his group were very quiet, i heard they got to Assilah lol and fell off the radar, I guess they were having such a good fun they didn’t get the time to post,
    We have seen only 8 other vans over the eastern side, some we’ve bumped into a few times, all French. we are now in Al Hocima loving this side of Morocco especially the N16 La Rocade Mediterraneenne. fab drive.
    See you both next year Marc & Sam

    They posted their travels on FB.

    We spent a couple of nights with them in Agadir- they were on their way north and we were heading south :)

    Ah, that's where they got to. Don't do FB

    Would have been nice if they'd reported back here occasionally though considering all the advice they got. Still takes all sorts I suppose. Glad they enjoyed themselves.
