Touristy Life in North Africa

Egypt & Morocco


Nordafrika - so nah und doch so anders. Nach West- und Ostafrika haben mich Marokko und Ägypten sehr positiv überrascht! Die beiden Ziele eignen sich perfekt für Backpacker. Vor allem in Ägypten, kann man fernab von den Pauschal-Urlaubsorten viel entdecken. Gut, die Pyramiden zu besichtigen ist überlaufen, überteuert und trotzdem ein Must-Do ;) Aber der Rest vom Land bedeutet pures Abtenteur, beste Falaffel-Sandwiches, tolle Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und nette Leute! Und Marokko lässt sich so zusammenfassen: Surfen, Kiten Surfen, gutes Wetter & traumhafte Strände.

Hundreds of tourists, big buses and crowded souvenir shops lead the way to the entrance. Welcome to one of the seven wonders of the world. Read More


Morocco: 3 cities, 3 experiences

Morocco and I became friends in December 2017, even though I visited the country two times before. But at that time, for some reason, I was blind to see the full beauty of Morocco!

From there, we travelled by bus and train to Essaouira, the wonderful, cozy beach town. On our way back, we stopped in Marrakesh. Here is the full city guide about these three places! Read More
