Camels Anyone?

Today the girls and I decided to take the road less traveled and headed out into the desert right outside of Marrakech. We were looking forward to our camel expedition since we have arrived, but were worried about the weather. It has been raining on and off for the past two days, but this afternoon the sun came out in perfect timing as we were getting to the camel camp. 

When I envision a desert, I don't envision trees. However, it was pretty cool to see the North African desert of Marrakech. 

We had a lovely family of camels to take us on our adventure. 

And of course, I had to take a video.

My camel was named Stan. He was the male of the group. 

Stan the Man

His baby was called J-Lo. She was one year old and followed behind us the entire trip. 

I was really enjoying taking video's of the excursion. 

 Our camel excursion lasted over an hour. I was getting bored, so I decided to mix things up a bit. I rode my camel on my knees...

And on my back....

and on my front....

somehow I even got turned around at one point.

Towards the end of the trip, we had to share the main road with a taxi. A heard of camels riding along the highway, nothing new for Morocco. 

The three of us were loving every minute of the ride. We couldn't stop laughing. Camel rides are pretty bumpy, but I would definitely recommend trying it once. We are back to the Burgh tomorrow, so it was a great way to end our Moroccan Adventure. 

Until next time, I will see you on the internet.
