Lets Go 2 Morocco No 2

My words could do no justice to anything I experienced during my latest trip in Morocco, so I will let the photos speak for themselves.

Thanks for this incredible journey to Karima from Lets Go 2 Morocco, Neil from Rewilding Bushcraft, and Idir from Idir Desert Life.

Eating Should Not Be a Luxury – Fundraising for UNICEF

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and support my attempt to help some of the most disadvantaged children in the world.

Eating shouldn’t be a luxury – Fundraising for Unicef

In this campaign, individuals like me open up their kitchen for friends for a day and invite them for lunch, dinner or breakfast. In return, we only ask them to contribute to the work of UNICEF with a smaller (or bigger…) amount. You can donate directly through this page or in person. My fundraising goal is 150 EUR, a tiny amount compared to the help UNICEF can provide even from this.

Sadly, many of you live far away from me, a dinner at my place is not an option. However, thanks to online donation, you can still contribute to the cause. Don’t forget, online donation is one of the easiest and safest way to help and I will appreciate the smallest gift you can offer.

And of course, you are always welcome for a meal whenever you visit Budapest!

Eating shouldn’t be a luxury – Fundraising for UNICEF

 

 

I have been to Africa!

So here I am, my new self. I have been to Africa, and I want more of it. As a first update, I will share the programme with you together with a few links that you might find useful if you want to participate in similar, life changing experiences.

Day 1: Marrakech arrival – an afternoon of free time on my own, but I received all help from the organizers to find everything I needed on my first day.

Day 2: Meeting with the group and the organizers! Visit to Asni and see how a weekend market looks like in Morocco. First evening spent in a beautiful, luxurious accommodation in Lalla Takerkoust (Le Patio du Lac), that is a 30 minutes drive from Marrakech.

Day 3: Departing from Marrakech after a rich breakfast in the hotel. The day is spent on the road. Some of the group leaves by car, others like me by coach. The destination is the Sahara. Late arrival in Dar Sidi Bounou, that will be our base camp for the rest of the trip.

Day 4:  A day getting to know our temporary home, complemented with a bit of camel riding and watching my very first sunset in the Sahara.

Day 5: A visit to the nearby village, first meeting the everyday reality of locals. Dinner spent in the desert together with our guide Idir, whom I will talk about later.

Day 6: A beautiful day spent in the L’Oasis sacrée d’oum Lâalag and the Chegaga dunes, finishing the day off again with a desert sunset!

Day 7: Visiting the nearby Bounou kasbah, so full of history, beauty and tragedy at the same time that you might find yourself questioning everything you know and do. Lunch at our guide Idir’s home then again a big portion of chasing history in the desert and crossing the now empty Draa river valley. Not only artefacts but human remains are also scattered under you feet.

Day 8: Final day of the trip spent on the dunes of Dar Sidi Bounou with the loveliest people you will find in the desert.

Day 9: A very difficult early morning good bye to new friends, then a nearly 10-hour bus journey back to Marrakech. Night in one of the riads of the Medina, where again, I was treated like a family friend. The following morning leaving Morocco with the first day of light, only to be able to return.
