The Sand Dunes of Marzouga

The Sand Dunes of Marzouga

Merzouga is a village in the Sahara desert in Morocco,. We drove 6 hours from marrakech, though hills, the winding roads of Tishka, the kasbahs around ourzazate, oases, flat lands, even more beautiful oases, and finally our hotel with a magic door opening towards the famous sand dunes of Merzouga. The view is just breathtaking--- warm colors, and space... lots of space and lots of camels! Riding a camel is something else, front, back front, swing, and you are on top of the world! This is Julie, getting excited to ride a camel for the first time. And this is Jane who equates riding a camel to her aerial dancing routines! And all we go, slowly, in our mini-caravane, to our tents where we are spending the night! The sun is setting... it's so beautiful. time stops. In the tents, our guide served us hot Moroccan tea. We ate, we watched the stars in a perfect sky, and played music... In the morning, we woke up early to watch the sunrise... That is one unforgettable experience. This is the lead camel, we nicknamed him "jojo" it's time to leave - the caravane is moving Breakfast was waiting for us at the hotel but not just for us! Talking about camels, have you ever had camel milk before? It's creamy, nutty, and delicious! and we were not the only ones who liked it, baby camel LOVED IT!!! oh baby camel... we want to take you with us!!! and off to continue our journey in the south of Morocco...

Mehdia – the Land of Fresh Fish. Morocco Trip.

You can get the freshest most beautiful fish in this market: sardines, whiting, shrimp, prawns, squid, crab, sole,...they have it all! Outside the market, there are people specialized in cooking the fish you just bought. They can prepare it for you anyway you want: grilled, fried, or even in a tagine!

My Trip to Paris V – My Favorite Things

My Trip to Paris V – My Favorite Things

This is the last video about my trip to Paris. The things I loved the most in Paris were: bakeries & pastries (oh my god...), petit pain au chocolat, unique food shops (I just showed 2 places, but Paris is full of them), world music in the metro (I loved it, every time I took the Metro, there was someone playing a different genre of music), and.... everything! I love this city; it is unique, mysterious, and has something for everyone. This trip would not have been the same without the people I love the most: Amit, Rim, and Eric. This video is dedicated to them. Thank you for the love you guys fill my life with... Alia
