      PAYG mobile phone SIM cards.

      Morocco Jan 25, 2015 at 1:47 PM

      I'm in the planning stages for my next trip to Morocco and need some advice about local SIM cards for Moroccan networks. I have a PAYG Huawei smartphone, now unlocked from the venal Vodafone network and want to buy a local SIM card with pre-loaded data plan, I'm not a lazy hound and have done my homework, proof here....

      prepaid-data-sim-card.wikia....

      But I find the information confusing, I will need 15 gigs for thirty days, and see the potential for rip-offs in setting up the phone with the local card, I can do this myself, provided it only involves switching the cards, but the outlet might want to charge an additional commission fee for this service. I only need this data plan to check the weather forecast while travelling, I won't be making any phone calls with the Huawei, I have another O2 phone for emergency use.

      So, can any members with "hands-on" experience point me in the right direction?

      No touts or theorists, please!

      Benny.

    • Spain and Morocco honeymoon advice

      Morocco Jan 11, 2015 at 7:32 PM

      Hello fellow travelers! My fiancé and I are having a difficult time planning our honeymoon, and would love help!
      Here is what we've been thinking so far: We are interested in starting in Spain. Sevilla/e looks wonderful, as does Madrid, Valencia, Granada, and Malaga looks decent and we've heard pretty good things about it. From there (after spending time in 2 places for 3 days each, or something close to that), we'd like to move on to Morocco either by bus and then fast ferry into Tangier where we would quickly move on to somewhere else: places nearby Fez that we are interested in are Asilah, Chefchaouen, Sefrou and Volobilis. The other option would be to go from Spain to more southern Morocco, near Marrakesh. Places near Marrakesh we are interested in are Essouira, and Diabat ("the castle in the sand"). We are not interested in Casablanca, unless we are just departing there to come back home. We are also up for any and all suggestions and alterations, or new information and areas we have not yet thought about.

      For our honeymoon we are looking to experience a combination of culture, sightseeing and easy adventures, as well as leisure, romance, and lots of great food and authentic, spanish and moroccan entertainment. I look forward to speaking with you soon! Thank you so much. My phone number and email is listed in my signature below.

    • uk to tangier

      Tangier Yesterday

      It seems that a flight from london to malaga and a ferry from port Tarifa to Tangier seems the easiest itinerary. I do find travel hard work and this trajectory seems reasonable. I cannot swim so I hope the ferry has lifeboats.i am mindful of that Titanic film.

    • no tour will go there we want to what do you think of the hire a car and driver option ???

      by CarolD39 Online Now Nov 2, 2014 at 8:15 PM

      We are not poor BUT we are NOT rich what we love is feeling, seeing, being part of what is real. Every time we come away from a trip, it makes me/us re evaluate, appreciate, what we have .
      We are fortunate to have friends all over the world that we would not have if we had not reached out to the distant parts of the world.
      I am no stranger to travel and what I LOVE is when you meet someone, eye to eye face to face ...... you can see the same reflection, the same mind the same wants and needs,
      I have never felt so aware of life and i love it ,
      The further away from my here and the closer i get to (there) the less stuff has a hold on me and the more people grow on me.
      i know there are issues, everyone knows that but i am no one special and i have no agenda i just love to learn and experience the goodness that each culture has to offer.

      A hotel in Boudenib?

      by DavidV28 Online Now Sep 18, 2013 at 7:58 AM

      Most websites I've found, claim that there are NO hotels or restaurants in either Boudenib or Bouanane.
      A friend of mine has told me that there is one small hotel in Boudenib: 'Hotel Hamada Guir' Can you tell me anything about this hotel?

      In Figuig, I know about the 4 major hotels including the Hotel Figuig, but what other hotels are there, the ones not named in my guidebook? Also, what about cafes and places to eat?

      I am coming to Figuig near the end of October, and I want to stay for one week.

      Please write to me at davidvickery.2013@ymail.com

      Thank you very much,

      Figuig: End of October weather?

      by DavidV28 Online Now Sep 17, 2013 at 10:15 AM

      Middle of last November I was in Merzouga, where I found the weather quite comfortable although there was a bit of rain and a windstorm.

      I'm now starting to make plans to travel from my home in Taroudant to Figuig, where I would like to stay maybe a week.

      I've heard about the heavy rains and flooding that does occur in Figuig at times.
      At what time of year does that usually take place? Is there a danger of such an occurrence at the end of October?
      Yes, I know, weather is unpredictable anywhere these days, but still...

      And thanks very much for your advice!
