Visit to Marrakech with Alexander and Georgina, as usual all details fully sorted by Gij. Last year we visited Agadir and this was a striking contrast – a quiet beach resort compared to a buzzing metropolis. We were a fair distance away from the Medina but walked in each day – often twice a day in my case – to get the full experience.

This was my second trip to Marrakech having visited with Amanda some years ago when we stayed in a Rihad within the Medina, which I actually managed to locate again. We discovered lots of great little places to eat with our favourites being the Earth Cafe and the Cafe Des Epices, both of which I remembered from last time.

Wandering through the Souks was as fascinating and irritating as ever “Come into my shop, I give you very good price…”. Drank no end of mint tea and managed to find a couple of very discreet off licenses to satisfy the need for a beer.

As it happened we arrived at the end of the 2019 Renault 4 Trophy and there were hundreds of 4Ls scattered everywhere. They seemed to be occupying most of the hotels along the same road as ours. This also sowed the seed for a potential 4L trip of our own next year…
