Fez, Nice castle walls , smelly Tannery

After Volubilis and a look into Roman empire we wondered down to the modern city of Fez, the walled city is very pretty and we ventured into the souk to see the tanneries, the souk is pretty standard and nothing special but wow how the leather tanneries smell, we were guided down little back ally after little back alley to as non tourist tannery and it was very genuine, the impromptu guide was not taking no ( we clearly had some skills that needed reacquiring),get stuffed as any sort of guidance, obviously he thought we would be lost and was amazed when we went straight back to the main souk even commenting ‘you are a clever man, well done’ . the years of being asked by Milly, “remember that shop we visited 20 years ago, can we go there now!! Has done me good 🙂


The campsite Diamond Vert is very impressive and of a standard that would befit any decent European Site, it even has a decent water park and very tidy rental villas, but it was the real Morocco of old we came to see and experience.

Another place that has wizzed by over the years

Volubilis, Romans in Africa .

we called into see the ancient city of Volubilis and find out about the Romans in Morocco 2000 years ago, it was very nice and interesting, the best building was the hidden modernists visitor centre, a nice pice of modern work probably 1990’s would make a nice home. oh and the ruins were OK too.

It IS sunny and Milly IS warm, the thick coat is just for effect and in no way was it bloody freezing on that mountain side.

We all know that sisters and brothers assume that anything the other sibling has is fair game and cunning techniques are used to uncover the location of the new must have piece of clothing is hidden, now having two daughters it is usually items of sorry cloth and facial chemical paint etc that you would think is fair game ,however  in my master plan of having daughters who are into motorsport the items that are kept next to the bed while they sleep are a little different to the normal teenage girl.



That’s Chloe’s pit,

Zoe keeps all hers in the boot of here car securely.locked up, not from little sister but away from me , 😣  surely some mistake.



I am sure the lads down the pub love the eau de WD40 aroma on Chloe while Zoe is partial to a dab of ep90 behind the ears.
