Embrace slow Morocco travel in 2023

Going slow is a romantic tribute to the slow way of discovery when we tour Europe. The challenge is this: It can be a tough sell when you can do the same hop with a low-cost airline ticket.

My socially conscious low-carbon getaway began with a night at the Moroccan-owned Riad Nessama, after taking a one-way low-cost flight into the city.

Day 1: Marrakech 

I've been to this ancient ochre-coloured Mahgreb city many times, but it was my first time having breakfast with a local family in their cozy windowless living space.

Day 2: Marrakech to Fès

Day 3: A day in Fès 

Day 4: Fès to Chefchaouen 

Day 5: Morocco to Spain — Tangier to Tarifa
