Crossed to tangier med this morning, it seems a lot more organised at Algeciras this year. We were the last motorhome off the ferry, mainly french, and a couple of Dutch and German, no other Brits. After getting our Moroccan paper work we noticed all the vans had gone immediately to the left and were going through the scanner, really strange, we just drove out of the normal gate and guess we were one of the first away, no idea what and why.

now parked up in the campsite at Chefchaouen in the sunshine.

Hi, always been through the scanner leaving Morocco, but never seen it for arrivals and so close to ‘paperwork offices’ strange.

We're going south next week Poole/Cherbourg and are all set to go back to Morocco in February to find some warm weather and a lovely culture. I believe Spain and Portugal are not much better than here in the UK atm.

If you are at Chefchaouen you might be going to Fez next.

We like our campsites and last year stayed at Diamont Vert as Camping International gets very poor reviews.

Apparently the owner had not crossed the right palms and the local officials and army had turned up a demolished one of his bungalows. We stayed there a week later and saw the evidence.

It is still reported as being closed, so if you pass by and can find any more information it would be really helpful...................anyone else know the latest situation.

We took the train from Kenitra and stayed overnight in a riad in Rabat.

Same in Marrakesh and Fez and it's a great and easy way to see the city life. We're not so keen on any parking close to city centres or driving to centres for that matter

Planning to overnight in Casa this trip as there's a train from Mohammedia so any info appreciated

We stayed at camping l'ocean bleu which was fine.
We took a taxi for the afternoon to visit the Mosque but we didn't do much else except walk round some appallingly poor streets in the shadows of the Mosque

Plenty of people on the site were getting petit taxis to the station to get into the city.

The campsite were very helpful in ordering taxis.

We had to visit Iveco in Casablanca last year and drive through town in rush hour to the mosque , watch out for road closures and park 4 night closures, but about 400m from the mosque we found a side street to park in. We went to ‘Harry’s bar’ for dinner, very civilised and not to expensive. Next day we went around the mosque, a great trip for the money.
Today, walked down the hill to Chefchaouen Medina, an easy walk, and a very pleasant walk around, no hassle, very clean and EASY.
I was expecting more grief and hassle, that doesn’t bother me, but a great day 👍 🇲🇦 .
Over the next few days we are planning to travel east to Oujba, and than travel south on the N17, and see what we find ......🇲🇦

Love Chefchaouen. Is Casablanca worth a stay? We went on the scooter from ocean bleu. Saw the mosque ( impressive) but had a spin round the town and seemed a bit grim.

We found the Medina near to the mosque, a real real locals place. Didn’t investigate the rest of the city, as we don’t really do actual history or historical culture 🙈

We'll take the train/taxi from ocean Bleu and find a cheap riad somewhere. Casa is such a modern city that we left it out last time.

We found the train journey is an adventure in itself. We have stayed in some lovely cheapish riads and are then able to stroll out into the city at night ........still have to pay for the van onsite. We'll try the Medina at Casa
