Part 6: Reunion with Driss

The following years we then spent vacations in the south of France, Greece, Italy or often with friends in Andalusia, Spain.

In April 2015, we were drawn back to Morocco. This time we flew from Belgium, Charleroi to Agadir and also spent the first day there.

The following day, we took the rental car on the road to Essaouira. The drive there takes about 3 hours and there is much to discover along the way.

When we arrived in Essaouira we immediately went to Driss.

During this visit, Driss told us that he would like to take us to visit his family in Meski, Errachidia one day. He told us that he actually lives in an oasis in the desert and was also born there. We said that we were interested in seeing this place and to our surprise Driss said to Bernhard: “When we go to Meski please pack your swimming trunks”.

We then spent a few more days in Essaouira before heading back to Agadir.

After 4 days we went back to Agadir, where we wanted to spend two more days.

On the last evening we went out again to celebrate the farewell. Afterwards, when we arrived at the hotel around 11 p.m., we received an email from the airline that our flight was cancelled the next day due to an air traffic controllers’ strike.

So we went to the airport the next morning and tried to get a new return flight. After a long wait and negotiation, we were then able to book a very expensive return flight one day later with another airline, but not to Belgium, where our car was, but to Frankfurt. So we had to be picked up by our son in Frankfurt and pick up our car in Belgium the next day. On Monday, we were able to recover from all the vacation stress at work.
