Part 5: Fes, Kenitra and Sidi Harazem

For October 2009 Bernhard then looked for new places to go in Morocco and we ended up in the royal city of Fes for the first time. (In total there are 4 royal cities in Morocco).

First we stayed in a nice hotel with a cute little balcony and from there we explored the surrounding area on foot.

Two days later we went by train and cab to Kenitra, 200 km away on the Atlantic coast.

Everything is also checked again at the station

Once there, we strolled through the alleys to find suitable accommodation, but unfortunately the only hotel we found was closed. So we sat down in a small restaurant to plan the next steps.

Typical Morocco, a man approached us there and asked if we were looking for a place to stay. When we confirmed this, he immediately said he knew someone who would take care of it, we should just wait for him in the restaurant. And sure enough, after quite a while he came back with another man and they took us to a small apartment with a cozy balcony right across the street from the beach.

I know someone who can find you accommodation
And there he is
The view from here was just great
Just relax
Every evening we enjoyed the sunset on the balcony

From here, we took daily beach walks or lazily lounged on the beach for the next 6 days. Bernhard was so brave and also went swimming in the cold Atlantic.

The beach in Kenitra is absolutely gorgeous

After this wonderful time out, we headed back towards Fes and spent the night in a hotel in Sidi Harazem, a small spa town where a mineral water known in Morocco is also produced, before heading back to Germany.
