I never thought I would be one to go on a group trip - but when Morocco came calling, a trip I had long wished to take, but never felt brave enough to embark on as a solo traveller - I signed up. I hoped it would be the best way to discover this amazing destination, with a local guide and the company of hopefully like-minded travellers. Taking this trip opened me up to new friendships, a shared travelling experience of discovery, learning and fun.
We take off across the desert on a jeep safari, roaring over sand dunes and blaring the band Tinariwen from the Sahara Desert (at least in our jeep). Our drivers keep everyone safe throughout the thrilling rides, and even partook in a pretend 'wheels-stuck-in-the-sand' moment.
As a group we did everything together - here we stop in Tamegroute to learn about the local pottery a traditional Morroccan method which has been passed down through generations. The distinctive green colour of the pottery is achieved with Magnesium, and is unique to the area.
