27 days in Morroco - May 21 - May 27, 2021
27 days in Morocco
After 30 years traveling solo, I knew a good driver/guide with a powerful vehicle was all I needed for the Morocco trip.
With Karim, ——the happy flexible guide/driver/assistant/DJ/playmate/dinner-mate all in one, came to my side, I realized that I could instantly enter into the self-indulgent age of innocence. Easy going and charming, Karim was a good sport. His car turned into our magic Moroccan carpet (with music soaring), carried me to the villages/valleys/madinas /high mountains and clouds… spirits soared; we became just kids, having fun and being silly, everyday and everywhere…. The ultimate joy a traveler could only hope for.
As adults, we all know that none of these wondrous moments could be possible without someone doing the careful preparation and provides solid back office support. I have to praise that Karim’s years of experience and dedication to make me happy, these were keys to create such a successful trip, and all the logistic and safety issues became invisible and he handled them seemingly effortlessly; so was his boss Abdel’s impeccable professionalism which I found truly world class and impressive. Although virtual (the biggest regret of the trip was that we never get to meet), Abdel was personable and could always make one feel understood, cared about and protected; and his support will always be there for you, whenever necessary.
Abdel and Karim, thank you for indulging me. I am grateful for everything you did for me. I wish you the best and my fond memories will be ever lasting.
