The ultimate A-Z of the sahara

One of the games we played as we walked through the sweltering desert was the A-Z game. We did various subjects from pop singers to countries, cheeses to things you do at a wedding. But now, this is the A-Z of the Sahara, the mother of all A-Z’s! (But I apologise this might only make…

Day 9, then 10: nothing

Today I would stay in the hotel, all day, by the pool. For I have seen Marrakech before! So, only this happened…  

Day 8: the day I shouldn’t have walked anywhere

Today, my feet died. Alarm call for 4.30am, we were all very disciplined and rose like maggots from our sleeping bags. We assembled our kit in the dark, something we were getting good at with the use of our head torches.

Day 2: acclimatising 

Okay, I have skipped the airport and flying parts of this trip, cos it’s just people on a plane. I have also skipped the part where we all met, as it was magical and we all loved each other. Lots of frantic chatting often leaves me in a daze and I then find it impossible…

The Great Saharan Awards Ceremony 

To disguise the fact that Discover Adventure weren’t supplying finishing T-shirts, we pulled together some awards to make the medals a bit more meaningful, and to help people forget about the aforementioned T-shirts.
