Taking a break in Agadir

I’m taking a break with my family in the South of Morocco, Agadir.

I am not a particularly keen on beach but if it means more reading time, I’m all for it. I find it hard to decide what I want to read. I’m not going to do very much site-seeing, having been in Agadir last year. This time we will spend 8 days in Agadir and another 4 in Marakkech. It is going to be about 45 degree Celcius, so wish me luck that I come back in 10 September all cool and calm!

I wish you all a great rest of the Summer and I’ll see you in the Autumn!

  5. I don’t like the sand aspect of a beach vacation but I do love the ocean views. My ideal hotel would have a veranda that backs to the beach which would allow the kids to have fun, and allow me to watch from a nice, shady spot. Enjoy! Can’t wait to hear what you read while there.

  6. Agadir looks delightful, so I hope you have a great time! And yes, having reading time is crucial on any vacation! Alas, even though I am no longer in graduate school, I still seem to have no time to read… I haven’t finished a single book in the past 2 months! Eep!

  14. 45 degrees?? wow…That’s incredibly HOT!! I have complained all the time with the heat here in Indonesia and it’s still below 45.

    good luck and have fun Jo 🙂

    • Novroz,
      Thanks, I had fun. It’s interesting to note that heat in a humid country and heat in a dry country feels differently. A 35 degree in a humid country is more unbearable than the 45 degree!

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
