Photo Friday #39: Camel Trekking

CAMEL TREKKING SAHARA, MOROCCO  |  TRAVELS WITH KID

Not only was having Tea in the Sahara a tick on my Life List but our stay in the desert was overall one of the highlights of our trip.


... While it doesn't look like there is much to do but take in the peaceful surroundings, Spud definitely kept busy ...


... with daddy's help, he got thoroughly buried (our guide told us that people with rheumatism come here to bury themselves because they believe it has healing properties)


... he explored on his own ...


... of course he drew in the sand ...


... learned to measure time using the shadow of a stick ...


... tracked insects ...



... our guide took him on a sort of sled ride down the dune ...


... and then a 90 minute camel ride back to camp ...


 ... so brave to ride all the way back on his own ...


... into the sunset ...



... home sweet Saharan home ...

Oh my goodness! These pictures are amazing! They make me want to hop on a plane...and then on a camel.
