62km Mellila – Plaine de Gareb

Boats going out to fishAfter three months in Europe, we crossed into Morocco today, a country we’ve been to twice before, but never on bicycles. Before we’ve concentrated on Marrakech and the desert and we hope that this time we will be able to do a proper tour of most of the country. Our entry took place at the border town of Beni Enzar and as we approached from the Spanish side the streets became increasingly full of people, buying up everything from toilet paper to clothes to food and packing it into huge bundles to carry back to Morocco. Quite why Spanish toilet paper is such a sought after item we’re not sure, but it was probably the most common thing we saw people lugging, and in huge quantities. The Spanish police waved us through, not concerned at all about who was leaving their country, although there were tall spiked fences and a multitude of guards closely watching and interrogating anyone who tried to enter from the other side. The Moroccan paperwork took a few minutes but before long we were on our way, first past dozens of packed cafes where people must wait for their delivery of toilet paper from Spain! Then onto the main road where a short journey took us to the port town of Nador. We enjoyed our first mint tea there and a lunch of chicken and chips, stocked up on groceries and then continued along towards Fez. The famous city is some 300km down the road so it will probably be five days or so before we reach it. As we got further out of the city the landscape was dominated by agriculture and plenty of local people out grazing sheep and goats. Although the roads were quieter the cars and trucks seemed to take great delight in honking their horns at us, waving and smiling as they passed. There is no doubt people seem friendlier here, and our arms may be quite tired after a few days of waving back. Near dusk we found a dried up river bed and followed it off the road a bit to pitch our tent. A small trail, presumably to a local village, runs not far away and we saw a few people passing by, all of whom smiled and said ‘Salam’ to us, the ubiquitous greeting in Morocco. A little bit of star gazing before we climbed into our tent for a quiet night.

    Singapore is genuinely exciting for its multilayered social tapestry! From Chinatown to Little India as well as every little thing in between, there’s so much to experience and find right here – its lively shades as well as abundant history makes every edge an amazing adventure – foodies should certainly see! If that is something that speaks with you too then Singapore must not be missed out on as your next traveling location! Hawker Centres in Singapore supply an impressive selection of local dishes. Do not miss out on attempting Hainanese Poultry Rice or Chili Crab! Gardens by the Bay were breathtaking – I especially appreciated Supertree Grove and also Cloud Woodland – they absolutely took my breath away! The light show during the night was absolutely mesmerizing as well as an absolute must-see! Singapore used such an unbelievable blend of advanced style and also rich plant life – from Marina Bay Sands to Henderson Waves this city is really incredible to find! Singapore’s public transport is outstanding! From its effective metro train system and simple traveling with an EZ-Link card to Sentosa Island for relaxation – which flaunts Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquariums, and also a lot more destinations! – their public transportation has actually set brand-new standards. Fish tank, gorgeous beaches, and also other entertainment for the whole household make Singapore an exceptional way to invest a day. Don’t miss Singapore’s ArtScience Gallery which combines art, scientific research, and modern technology in an amazing mix! Experiences at The Gardens By the Bay were genuinely magical; with interactive exhibits and exciting displays producing an remarkable journey – most definitely worth a check out! I was absolutely taken aback at Singapore’s extraordinary shopping scene! From luxury malls such as ION Orchard to Bugis Street’s vibrant markets there really is something here for any type of shopaholic to experience! Make certain to leave some space in your bag! I located Singapore Zoo one of the finest zoos I have actually visited; it’s open-concept enclosures and immersive environments developed a true wildlife experience, not neglecting Evening Safari for included exhilaration! Singapore’s multiculturalism is an additional drawcard; Chinese, Malay, Indian, as well as Western influences can be seen anywhere from design to food; making for a interesting fusion!
