  1. Hi there,

    This trip to the Sahara desert in Morocco seems gorgeous! One day I will go there and book this holiday, but for now unfortunately we are in complete lockdown in my country, no travel is allowed. I will bookmark this link though for further reference. And I like the hiking shoes, are they suitable for the desert? 

    Best regards,

    Lizzy
