My husband & I are planning a trip to Morocco late this summer, and are trying to narrow down our options as for places to go. We have about 8-10 days, and are flying in & out of Casablanca from the US. We are definitely willing to travel around via plane, train or car while there, although would not like to do much frenetic running around. We are relatively young and adventurous, and so are planning to do as much 'outside' activity as possible (i.e. hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking etc). On top of it all, we LOVE FOOD! We are huge fans of finding the 'out of the way' more interesting places...
So, any food related tips? Biggest caveat here is that I am a vegetarian, although I do eat fish... I am also slightly lactose intolerant, so can't do meals that are extremely dairy-heavy. My husband will eat anything put in front of him. Suggestions? Words of wisdom - or of caution?
We have been throwing around flying to Marrakech & then heading into the Atlas Mountains, or maybe over to Essouira. Thoughts on those places?
Thanks in advance.
