Thank you! I am going to be sending Martin pictures and updates throughout so he will then post blogs on the homepage - most likely at the end of each day :) so you can follow me on there.

Sure thing, we will get one put together. It’s definitely handy to know - especially if anyone else is planning a similar trip!

100%, a mate and I are considering heading to Morocco next year so planning all the works I need to do before that.

Seeing your trip has inspired me to check out Europe as well and maybe even add a Alps pass into the trip.
