Sahara Desert Day One

Sahara, Morocco

To be honest I am still processing my overall opinion of Morocco. When I got there I had one goal, visit the Sahara Desert. As a little girl, my older brother Marc would hog the tv, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen Indiana Jones. (My last name is also Jones) I would imagine that we were related planning our future adventures together. Growing up great adventures were always being enjoyed by men. I never saw myself as the damsel in distress instead I wanted to find the gold. 

Here I was years later in Marrakech with a Riad only booked for 3 days, I also had a 3 days gap with no accommodations! My best friend booked me a Riad in Fes, where I was flying out of but  Fes was 7 hours away. I had no idea how I was going to get there and the issues didn’t end there. I entered into Morocco with 340 Euros, I was alone, tired and the lowest quote I received prior to arriving in Morocco was 600 euros since the tours catered to groups.

Everything was against me yet, I managed to fill my 3 days with a tour that included one night in a Riad and one night in the Sahara Desert WITH Breakfast and Dinner for under $100. Living the nomad life and learning Berber words even if for only one night.

And because I love a list:

Here are 5 things I wish I knew before heading to the Sahara Desert

1. The camel ride hurts – so bad

2. The journey is long and includes extreme heat, the wind and cold nights

3. Take extra water – Their’s none in the desert

4. Don’t forget your sunscreen – You’ll see my funky foot tan in the video 🙁

5. Your camel may or may not like you
