My friend and I rode camels to Merzouga, a town near the Sahara Desert. We decided to spend the night in a desert oasis (a hidden paradise!) with two camel guides. It was amazing! We watched the sunset, gazed at a million stars at night, and saw the sunrise – all surrounded by Berber culture. The camel drivers told us stories, sang songs, and cracked jokes – it was a blast! This whole experience was pure happiness. Thanks to our awesome camel guides! We’ll be back someday!
