At 56 days to departure, Euro 2014 is starting to take shape. With the exception of the train between Lisbon and Porto and the bus from Faro in Portugal to Seville, ES, all the transport reservations are done. There’s lots of driving in this year’s plan including Lisbon to Faro, Seville to Gibraltar via Cordoba and Granada, Madrid to Barcelona via Spanish and French Basque country and Tangier to Marrakech via Chefchaouen, Fez and Casablanca.
No doubt about it, Morocco is pushing our comfort zone a bit, but I’m really looking forward to it. The town of Chefchaouen, located in the Rif Mountains in the northern part of the country is known for a couple of the things. One is it’s blue-washed walls and buildings the other is it’s prodigious supply of hashish. It should be interesting.
