5 days, 4 nights – 8 people, 3 camels – a journey by foot to the physical limits of the individual in the endlessness of the desert.
In the morning we have wonderful hot Moroccan tea. We head on with our backpacks and put one foot in front of the other for the following hours. The rhythm is determined by the camels and the fitness of the individual. Over the midday heat we lie exhausted in the shade of a tree. When the camels are packed again, it’s time for us to leave.
The desert is one of the most diverse places that I have ever seen. The surface changes every few kilometers, sand without stones seemed to me the most pleasant.
The last hour of the daily march, when the heat as well as the energy slowly disappears, I look forward to our camp. As soon as we arrive we fall on our mats. We cook and eat lentils with rice. We solve desert puzzles, talk and laugh together about the hardships of the day, before we fall asleep early under the star spangled desert sky.
