Morocco in October anyone?

Im looking to do my first trip to morocco, taking the ferry from portmouth to santander, possibly 5th til the 20th, though im flexible as still in early stages of planning.

Would be great to have a travel bud, Im looking to pass my test in September after many months riding through london traffic on a 125.

Im used to driving long distances, I drive my vw campervan to austria once a year, and have done many other long distance trips. so im not totally wet behind the ears.

Let me know if you're interested, or perhaps I can join up if you already have a plan in place

cheers

Hope to go to Morocco at around the same sort of time. Looking at getting the Chunnel to France and then the train to Spain (quicker and cheaper than the ferry??), then riding through Spain to Morocco. No firm plans as yet, but I really hope to make it, work (and missus) permitting.

Michelin 742 is the map most people use. For others see the link in my signature.
