If you're thinking of using Airbnb for the first time, we have a $50.00 credit from us to use towards your first booking 🙂
The average person doesn’t need to think twice about getting out of town for a 48 hour travel adventure or a long weekend. The only thing stopping you dead in your tracks is finding cheap flights. Please visit our helpful posts on Booking Flights. Personally, I’m all about simplicity so I recommend Skyscanner, the the best way to search the best rates in flights.
Aside from the Jemaa el-Fna other places of interest are: Palais de la Bahia, Palais El Badiî, Menara Gardens & Jardin Majorelle. Also be sure to book a desert tour. These tours take you out to the vast desert where you spend the night or two. Hands down the best way to witness gorgeous sunsets and sunrises over the beautiful desert oasis.
Using the latest travel apps, technology and gear, I take a city; see the sights, taste the food, smell the roses, hear the stories and feel the love. All in 48 hours. Then, using videography & editing, photography and writing I retell and share those stories with my readers and viewers. I'm Christopher Rudder and welcome to Rudderless Travel.
