Morocco – Day 11 – Asillah -> Tanger Med -> Algericas -> Malaga (293 km)
We left the hotel at 5 in the morning and it was still quite dark. The road was empty. We were at the border about 7:30 in order to check in at 8am and board the ferry.
I did not feel good as I had slept badly at night. For the first time since the beginning of the trip my stomach began to hurt and I had to take a painkiller. As soon as we boarded the passenger deck, I went to the last row of seats and just lay down on the floor to take a nap. Fortunately the medicine helped, and the two hours of rest was really helpful.
I feel that in this way, the ferry sailed much faster. We were, however, slightly behind time and that’s why we continued our journey in Spain along a toll motorway. There were really a lot of things to do before departure but with a little time to do it. When Paul and I went to pick up the car from the car park, the remaining part of the team were preparing motorcycles for loading and re-packing things. I had the chance to use Pawel’s GS which was a cool machine. Compared to Adventurer, it is lighter, smaller and easier to steer.
When we pulled up at the hotel we loaded the motorbikes on the trailer promptly and effectively. We went to the airport after about an hour.
We landed in Warsaw in the evening. The wind was strong and it was raining. The temperature was 8 degrees. There was time for just a quick goodbye and we parted. I had to wait two hours for the plane to Poznan and was at home at midnight.
