Arrival day of our G Adventures Highlights of Morocco tour saw us land in Casablanca, Morocco and head to our starting hotel.

Casablanca is Spanish for “White house”.

Unfortunately for us by the time we arrived at our hotel there was no real time available for us to explore before the group welcome meeting.

After the meeting we all headed out for a group dinner at a local restaurant and got to experience our first real taste of Morocco. One Lemon chicken tagine and mint tea later and it was time to head back to the hotel to get a good nights sleep before our journey to Meknes first thing in the morning.

Pleasantly surprised by the transportation provided for our group for the rest of the tour; a well equipped and modern mini-bus, much better than the expected cramped mini-van mentioned in the trip itinerary.

Travelling through the countryside reminded us of a mix of places we have been before, part South-American, part European and the new to us African.
