That was an adventure… Morocco!

When we realized that Tangier, Morocco was just a drive and ferry ride away… We decided we had to go for it.

We booked with a company that planned the logistics for us and we are glad we did because it helped us fit everything we could into the day.

They picked us up at our hotel in the morning and drove us 2.5 hours from Sevilla to Tarifa, Spain.

One thing that has been so nice traveling around here is that it is easy to reserve carseats and boosters anytime we traveled by car.

We got on the ferry with three minutes to spare (that was stressful) and Andrew stood in line for the passport control right away. The ferry ride was about an hour away and then we were in line for another 45 minutes to get our passports checked and stamped before we were able to get off the boat.

They picked us up from the ferry and took us on a driving tour.

We saw Mosques, Synagogues, Cathedrals, the King’s home, palaces and stunning homes overlooking the ocean.

The languages (Moroccan Arabic and Berber are the main languages here), the signs, the smells, the buildings, the everything…. It was a new world for all of us. We couldn’t get enough!

We also took a walking tour.

One thing I loved seeing was the public/community oven during our walking tour. Each neighborhood shares one!

The kids were most excited about the wild cats ALL over the city (didn’t get a picture of one but they were everywhere).

Seeing where the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean meet was one of my favorite parts.

They took us to ride camels along the beach… this was a first! My kids were in shock over this experience.

I think I took 500 pictures of the streets, markets, and areas dating back to 1095.

This alley ❤️:

Olives everywhere!

Hearing the Muslim Call to Prayer throughout the day was incredible. This happens five times a day and we all loved hearing it.

They showed us a few spots where the latest James Bond was filmed too!

Andrew, Brooke, and I adored the food… the flavor from the spices was unreal. The others dined on French fries;)

I could eat this over and over and over again.

I was almost convinced to have a rug shipped home;)

Overall, it was an amazing experience that none of us will forget (well, maybe Beck will;).

And back to Spain we go… I’m getting used to blogging from my phone in a car ha.

PS It was pretty incredible to me that we could see Spain and Portugal from Tangier!

I hope you have a beautiful day and thanks for following along!

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
