In the second half of our adventure in Morocco we travelled out towards the Atlas Mountains and stayed in an ecohotel miles from anywhere. On the first day we borrowed bikes and rode to the nearest village which had its weekly market that day. We ate with locals and listened to Berber musicians, it was pretty magical.
On the second day in the countryside (and sadly our last day of the trip) we had originally planned to take it easy and then catch our flight in the evening, but instead we borrowed a car and went for a long drive up into the mountains. It was a bit scary driving on the wrong side of the road next to sheer drops, but the sights were breathtaking. I'm so glad we did it. And I love that even though I'm back home I'm walking around in boots that still have Atlas Mountain mud on them!
