Morocco: Tafraoute to Chefchauoen

We are coming to the end of our Moroccan trip. You can read my earlier posts from the road about getting to Morocco, visiting Marrakech, and the road to Tafraoute. After having a nice, relaxing evening in Tafraoute where we restocked our supplies, enjoyed real showers, and had a fun dinner in a Berber tent, we got on the road early. From Tafraoute, we drove mostly on main roads through Agadir and to the beach. Continue Reading →
