After having been self employed, teaching children IT skills and acquiring a sailboat, I made the decision to start a new life outside the European Union. Today I'm an IT professional, homeschooling father and living aboard my sailboat with my wife and two children.
Please go to my BLOG for stories about my voyages.

I sailed from Belgium to Morocco and I have started a new life in Morocco.
I'm now berthed in the capital city of Morocco, Rabat. North of my current position I have been navigating upriver to the city of Kenitra, see the picture below.

South of my current position awaits an amazing surrounding.... Dakhla. When? Allahu a3lam.
If someone told you that in Morocco, there exists a place where, in the month of December, you can relax in the sun on never ending beaches of fine sand in a pleasant temperature of 30°C, bath yourself in a lagoon, observe pink flamingos, Sail or windsurf and taste grilled fish as much as you can take, you would probably answer that such thing is not possible...
Yet it is possible, but it is known by few people only ... In Dakhla, more than 1,750 km south of Casablanca and 350 km north of the Mauritanian border.
Dakhla is located at the tip of a peninsula with a long arm of sand in the Atlantic Ocean where it results in the formation of a calm bay with clear waters as long as 40 km and as wide as 3 to 6 km. It is in fact an ecosystem protected against currents and windswept, where you climb the sand dunes to just walk right with your feet into the calm crystal clear water. By observing the area, you see the unique geography: the hundreds of kilometres of flat beaches made of fine golden sand, the high cliffs of about twenty meters opening onto desert plates, high perfect waves who break closer to land, clear waters revealing teeming schools of fish...
My last holidays: North-Morocco and Spain! I rented a berth right next to Jebel Tariq (Gibraltar), the year after I toured in North-Morocco (Tanger, Smir).
