Marrakech/Morocco – Carcassonne/France

(07:38H)


 

Spain and France to go.

Off we were on a flight over more water. This requires wearing our life west’s for the last time on our flight and on the pre take
off briefing going through a “Ditch routine”. Lovely experience and Iam glad we never had to use it.


Hello Europe

 

 
Our routing in very hazy weather and virtually no forward visibility lead us on the airway via Casablanca, the city of Fez, overhead
Meilla, Spanish Morocco, then in clear sky over the Mediterranean sea to Almeria in Spain, along the coastline past Barcelona and
hop over the Pyrenean mountains.

Last overnight was in the French medieval walled city of Carcassonne, landing at sunset.


 


All along, scenery was sensational wherever we went, from the great Namib Desert, to the tropics, north over all the dark bush, savanna,
deserts and following rivers and coasts.

Cultural differences, religions, wildlife, as well as many interesting people we met are stories on their own.
