Way back when Globe Trekker was a fledgling production company, series 1 was created.
In one of his very first shows as a Globe Trekker presenter, Ian Wright traveled to Morocco on the north-western tip of Africa. The episode went on to win a number of awards, including US Cable Ace award for Best Show and Best Host and was Ian Wright’s international and US breakthrough.
It’s a country of stark desert, high mountain ranges, and some of the most richly cultured cities in the world.
Ian began his journey in the port of Tangier, where most travellers enter the country. Sharing a ride with an American businesswoman as far as the small market town of Chaouen, Ian picked up some valuable tips about travelling in Morocco after which he hitched a ride to the walled city of Fez, through the Rif mountains, the country’s main Hashish growing region.
