A Bit More Devon and Dartmoor

      No Comments on A Bit More Devon and Dartmoor

Time to move on again, end of housesitting duties so we say goodbye for now to the Devon coastline and the hills of Dartmoor. The weather hasn’t been quite so kind the last few days, but we’ve taken the opportunities to get out. Back now to Somerset for a few days, and then probably a week or so on the… Read more »

Views over The Devon Coastline and Dartmoor

      No Comments on Views over The Devon Coastline and Dartmoor

A bit behind with the photos, so a quick update. The sun has been shining on and off, allowing us to get out and explore the coastline, and a cracking day on south Dartmoor. Really enjoying this bit of Devon at the moment, just a few days remaining. Still undecided about where to go next!

House Sitting in Newton Ferrers

      1 Comment on House Sitting in Newton Ferrers

Well, something of a change from last week, but at least the sun is still shining. We’ve come to Newton Ferrers for a spot of house sitting for a couple of weeks. It’s a lovely place, overlooking the estuary, and with great coastal walks very close by. We headed over to Mothecombe beach for a Sunday morning stroll, then back… Read more »

The Bahia Palace, Marrakech

      No Comments on The Bahia Palace, Marrakech

Our last day in Morocco, and time to tick off a couple of sights that we missed at the start of the trip. The palace is a grand house and gardens, each room decorated lavishly with hand carved plaster and tiles. A bit more schlepping through the souks, this time taking more time to ponder what there was to buy,… Read more »

If You Think You Had A Shit Day, Try This

      No Comments on If You Think You Had A Shit Day, Try This

Now here’s a job with prospects. The prospect of not standing in shit and urine, going home, and having a shower. Except that’s probably not going to do it is it? These are the leather tanneries in Marrakech, still operated in the age old fashion of soaking the skins in piss and pigeon shit for a month to soften the… Read more »

Fish Stalls at Agadir Harbour

      No Comments on Fish Stalls at Agadir Harbour

At the North end of the bay of Agadir, there is the commercial harbour and the swanky marina. Lots of well dressed throng to the marina and its shops and restaurants. Our friend Isabelle suggested we find the sardine restaurant at the harbour, but we weren’t sure if they meant one of the marina restaurants, or the commercial harbour. The… Read more »

Agadir Souk

      1 Comment on Agadir Souk

A full day to wander Agadir, we headed first to the Supratours bus ticket office to get our tickets to return to Marrakech. Supratours takes over where the railway leaves off, providing a service a bit like National Express at home. We paid the extra £2 for the Confort Plus service, as the standard service down from Essaouira smelt a… Read more »
