New Year’s Eve in Merzouga, Moroccan Desert

We spent New Year’s Eve in Merzouga, located in the Moroccan desert about 30 miles from the Algerian border. The small village is at the edge of incredible sand dunes, thus it is frequented by travelers and truly makes you aware that you are in the Sahara desert.

Our desert inn was quaint and adorable. A live local band, Moroccan feast, bonfires in the court yard, and celebrating with our new friends made it one of the best new year parties I’ve ever experienced! (And I totally admit I was sound asleep by 11:30).

We're not twenty-something backpackers taking a trek around the world (anymore). We work full time and spend every spare dollar and minute on our wanderlust. We live to travel. Exploring new cultures, meeting people from around the world, sharing food, drink and music—all this reminds us that we are one tribe. We write how-to tips to help you have a smooth journey as well as our inner thoughts on new places we explore. Let us know what you think!
