Arrived in Marrakech 9 pm for a flight to Tangier at 22.45. Moments later a delay until 00.20 am, about 90 mins delay, no explanation. We arrived in Tangier about 2 am and in bed about 3 am
This was the view from Tangier hotel at breakfast before 45 minute drive to Tangier Med to catch the ferry across the straits of Gibraltar to Spain.
The ferry took about 1.5 hours to cross the 13 km of the Mediterranean to the Spanish city of Algeciras but we lost an extra hour because of the time zone difference. Tangier Med is the largest port in Morocco.
After the 90 minute crossing we berthed in Algeciras and nearby was British Territory of Gibraltar. It has an area of 6.7 square km and a population of about 30,000.
After disembarking we got a ride to Malaga, the heart of the Costa del Sol. The journey was about 150km and there was development almost all the way.
Next stop Malaga
