We recently got back from our wonderful trip to Fez, Morocco. While exploring Fez, I decided to take some footage of what we saw so that I could document Chigozie and I’s journey for us to look back on in the future, and of course to share with family and friends.
The Train Ride to Fez
In the first video of the Fez series, we took a train ride that lasted for about four hours. At first, the train ride was really nice because we got to see so much beautiful scenery. The train itself was really nice and climate controlled which does not happen often. However, once the train picked up speed about an hour into the ride, I was already feeling so sick! It may have been due to the combination of motion from the vehicle and the greasy Pringles Chips that I ate.
Arriving in Fez
Once we got to Fez, it was like a breath of fresh air, literally! The air was so clean and it was refreshing to be in a new city. Soon after, we met with our driver and he took us to our riad.
After walking through a winding route connected to a random corridor of the Old Media we made our way to the front door of the Riad Fes – Relais & Châteaux. You will have to check out the video to see how well the beauty of this place was captured on camera. We checked in, got to our room and simply relaxed while we munched on Moroccan cookies and sipped traditional mint tea.
Stay tuned this week for the second part of our journey where I will share the places we visited, the food we ate, and more landscape shots of the beautiful city of Fez!
