Kosher Travelers - Magic of Morocco Day 8

Kosher Travelers Magic of Morocco

Day 8: Marrakesh City

“The Red City” or the “Pearl of the South” are but two of the names given to Marrakesh, the most beautiful city in Morocco.

Today we explored the city center and had free time to visit the lively markets. We passed through the Melah, and stopped by the Koutoubia Mosque, visited a Berber pharmacy, Spice Shop, and the Bahia Palace & Gardens.

We toured the “medina” the market quarter of the city. The market is a mass of colors, voices and smells, a polyglot of all the treasures that exist in this country. The “medina” is divided according to the type of product: an area for silver houses silversmiths and silver dealers, while gold is dealt with in a different area, and rows upon rows of stalls sell leather, copper, and jewelry.

Afterward, we had the option to visit the brand new YSL Fashion Museum dedicated to the life and work of French icon Yves Saint Laurent. While, others continued shopping in the markets and made their way back to the Hotel, and relaxed by the gorgeous pool & gardens.

We ate a delicious dinner at the Kosher Restaurant at our hotel Grand Mogador Menara Marrakech - Luxury Hotel

Have you visited the new YSL Museum?

10 Essentials on a Kosher African Safari

By: Eddie’s Kosher Travel Staff

An African Safari vacation is on the top of millions of bucket lists.

Traveling with your family on an African Safari and showing your children the wonders of wildlife is a rewarding experience.

Traveling with your family means that you must be even more organized and prepared.

Next week, David and Chana Walles are traveling with their children to Africa joining Sivan Ya’ari and Innovation: Africa. Innovation: Africa proudly applies Israeli solar technologies to bring clean water and electricity to rural African villages.

Following the mission, the Walles family, will be experiencing first hand a Kosher African Safari.

What’s In Your Bag?

Chana, a seasoned traveler, swears by packing lists.

“Over the years, I have forgotten essentials at home.

Frustrating.

I created a set of packing lists that I now use whenever I pack.

Frustration eliminated.

Now, my luggage and handbags are organized and I am ready to relax on vacation.”

Here is Chana’s list of the ten most important things you need to pack in your handbag on an African Safari.

Chana’s Packing List

10. #wetravelkosher

Even if you are traveling with a kosher tour like the Walles family, always remember, to pack kosher snacks in your bag.

It can be a challenge to find kosher food along the way. You will be so happy to pass your kids a granola bar or snack or some almonds.

Carry your Tefillat Haderech card along with a pocket siddur and proud Israeli citizens always travel with our Israeli flag.

Here you can find the Prayer for Travelers Tefillat Haderech.

9. Glasses

You will be outdoors for much of the time, so make sure you have a strong pair sunglasses.

If you wear prescription glasses, be sure to pack more than one set (in case you lose one or they get broken).

Safarieyewear has a great selection of sunglasses.

You will get dirty - enjoy it!

What's In Your Bag?/ African Safari

Camera and Video Equipment

Africa is a dream destination for photographers both pros and rookies. Beautiful landscapes, outstanding light, sensational wildlife make Africa so photographic.

Don’t miss out. Buy a camera, if you don’t already have one.

#3 Binoculars

Most people will remember to take their camera and/or video but many people forget to pack binoculars.

Binoculars are ESSENTIAL for optimum wildlife viewing on safari. A good pair of binoculars will make a big difference to your safari.

Try to find binoculars with at least 8x or 10x magnification.

Your kids will love the Carson MicroMini 20x Pocket Microscope (Safari Green).

#2 Flashlights

It is a good idea to bring your own flashlight or two.

Flashlights can lead you back to your tent in the middle of the pitch black night.

A rechargeable flashlight is ideal but a small battery-powered torch is sufficient. The new LED miners lights fits right on your head and frees up your hands.

A smaller flashlight for emergencies or looking at star maps is also worth considering.

A great option to consider is Kohree LED Miner Head Light Headlight

#1 Important Documents

Always carry a copy of your e-tickets, passport, itinerary, travel insurance and other travel related documents.

A great inexpensive passport holder that will keep your cash and documents safe is the Venture 4th Travel Neck Pouch Neck Wallet with RFID Blocking.
