Horse Carriage Ride Through the Streets of Marrakech, Morocco

After visiting Jemaa el Fna Square and the Medina in Marrakech, we decided to take a horse carriage ride back to the our hotel.

If you’ve ever wondered what Marrakech really looks like, outside of all the tourist places, this will give you a good view as we ride through the city, navigate traffic circles, get a little lost, watch the horses make some wonderful U-turns, and finally make it back to our hotel.

While I’m playing tour guide, Tim is being a goof, as usual.

As usual with our Live Stream videos, we don’t do a lot of pre planning because we want to show you exactly what we’re experiencing. Sometimes travel goes smoothly, and sometimes it doesn’t – but that’s all part of the adventure, isn’t it?
