 A day out in Mouley Idris with a donkey ride to Volubis….to be cont….

It was an early morning taxi ride away from our temporary home in Sefrou. The highways well signposted and surfaced. We headed towards Fez and then moved southwest …rolling country, the edges of the highways dotted with small flocks of sheep and goats always with a goatherd and a dog. A few hours saw us into slighly steeper more rugged country with Mouley Idris kind of like a gate way down onto a large plain.

Our wonderful guide…..who walked us up and down through this beautiful town pointing out places of interest and historical significance.

We arrive at where we will clamber aboard our donkeys to be lead down to Volubis…..unbeknownst to us, it was going to be a long and strenuous ride!

Ready to go…..

Daytripping in japan

It seems like yesterday and indeed it was less than a week ago that  i was driving along the western edge of Hokkaido to Cape Kamui…. 

Elegant bridges…

Spectacularly long tunnels…

Protected fishing boat harbour

A lone gull…

Cape Kamui spinning out to sea…..

sunset close to Cape Kamui….

And an especially beautiful onsen ….(hot tub) to finish off….right on the beach.An incredible day!

And just to top it off a flower i fell in love with  ….

I have a hunch this might be a relative of the carnation….maybe. They were often to be seen.
