TravelPod Member ReviewsRiad Tizwa Fes
There are 8 or so rooms throughout the house, each unique. Ours was large and right off the courtyard so not very private. The bathroom was very small with a makeshift shower. In comparison, it would've been nice to stay in one of the other rooms especially since they were not occupied. Nice rooftop terrace.

Arrival in Fes was simple, Richard, the owner of Riad Tizwa, our new home for the next three days, had provided very explicit directions upon arrival.

I then caught a collective taxi, meaning I shared with 4 other people plus the driver (it can be up to 5 other people and the driver (so 7 people all up). I walked into the bus station and bought my ticket, which unfortunately wasn't for a few hours as the next bus to leave was full and it hadn't been possible ...

I was completely overwhelmed with how different everything looked.
It was pretty late now, and we still had a while in the bus. The roads in Morocco are all up in the hills and are narrow, windy, and steep. I felt super car sick and was glad when we finally made it to the hotel. We had a little free time, then we ate dinner. It was good food - all ...
... for us. The tour groups are just arriving in their swanky coaches and the locals have pitched up in their own vehicles. Seems like we're the only independent travellers around. I stop to buy some postcards and the vendor tells me we can pick up a taxi at the top of the road, just half a km away but all uphill :-( Sure enough, we don't have to wait long once we reach the main road. We hop in a taxi back to Moulay Idriss where I drink ...
... and the very cold nights in about a week.
Even though Rabat is the capital there is a couple of interesting things to see, like the medina where you can eat camel head, which didn't smell too bad but I decided against it. Also the casbah (which I learned means castle) and some roman ruins (they got everywhere!) just on the outskirts of Rabat.
I'm going to have a go at uploading some photos now, ignore this if it works!
