Beating the most atrocious weather conditions on the way trought France and Spain we finally arrived in Morocco.
We took the ferry from Algeceiras to Tangier - Med . To get on the ferry was some adventure as nobody seemed to know the number of the berth were the boat would leave, " just check if you can see it somewhere" was the best info we got....
There are so many ferry's ,trucks and only a few cars and vans, and no plan ,but it all seems to work We finaly saw the boat coming in and an army of camper vans , trucks and vans rolled off the boat and trailerd pulled off by small feeder trucks and we thought we would end up squashed by o e off them And theen it was our turn driving into the big mouth of the vessel that would bring us to another continent was some exciting moment.
Across the Staight of Gibraltar it takes an hour to get to Morocco and we arrived around six in the evening.With a bit of help of some friendly Moroccan who speaks perfect German , skipping the qeue by walking thouh the security barriers with a no entry signe to get my passport registered with the police, we passed through customs quickly.
We decided to head for the outskirts of Tanger to get a pls e for the night as it got dark. And even only one hour by accoss the sea and it is a different world So I'm excited and nervous when we set off to Marrakech in the morning.
Both bikes are running fine, the new Conti TCK 80 and smaller front sprocket fittet to Barbaras GS made the bike ready for the road and Harry's has fixed the whole in the exhaustPosted by Barbara Halter at April 07, 2013 09:40 AM GMT
