Once you have decided to go traveling, what is the first thing you would take into consideration?

The city is a combination of white-sand beaches, exquisite cuisine and vivacious nightlife and a plethora of things to try out!
Have you seen the movie Gladiator? If not, go and watch right now. Those who have seen in will be glad to know that Sahara is the location where the most prominent scenes of the movie were shot. You can start with capturing the velvet dunes and taking photos of the snake charmers and mighty camels proudly swaying as they carry bedouins on their back. Once in a province, you will get a chance to capture and even participate in the traditional tea ceremony as well as to see the locals playing gnawa music performed on goatskin drums. The beauty of the sunset in Sahara is just a cherry on the top of a cake you cannot miss out on.
Are you keen on water activities? Then why not to combine photographing with an enjoyable ride on the river making your vacation even more exciting!
