Usher ended 2013 by embarking on a trek across the Sahara Desert.
The Yeah! hitmaker jetted off to Morocco after Christmas (25Dec13) for his final adventure of the year, and he documented his travels in a series of posts on his Instagram.com page.
He posted snaps of himself exploring souks and trekking through the desert on a camel. He is seen wearing a traditional headdress and pouring sand out of his shoes, and the trip also involved camping in the North African desert.
The singer posted pictures of a glitzy New Year's Eve party (31Dec13), while other snaps show him riding through the desert on an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and posing with a snake charmer in Marrakesh.
