I have already been to Morocco a few months before this trip during Ramadan and I know quite a lot about the culture and religion of the people in Morocco, from the history of the medina and how tourism is a large aspect of their lives.
Because my previous visit was during Ramadan, I have an interest in the Muslim religion and the culture of Muslim people due to the strict rules within the Quran.
I know that material is very important in Morocco, especially Pashmina and leather, however, I do not agree with the use of leather due to personal beliefs and would like to avoid things like leather making and activities that involve the exploitation of animals such as camel riding.
I am a fine artist who specialises in painting landscapes, I am particularly interested in nature within morocco. One of the things that I wanted to do in Morocco but didn’t get the opportunity to do last time I visited was to go up the Atlas mountains.
My plan for the week in Morocco:
Arrive in Marrakech in Riad bahia salam
Tour around Marrakech – All day. Sightseeing
Souks / Henna café / Clock café
Desert activities (based on what is available at the Riad and what price) – Camping/hiking/quadbiking etc
Blind school activities
Hiking atlas mountains to see waterfalls and monkeys
Spa to relax after the hiking / Souks / Photography opportunities of mountains etc
Visiting Mosques / City garden / Galleries
