Traditional Maghrebi/Moroccon mint tea
A hut in Morocco

Having come to a quick and spontaneous decision, the Red City also known as Marrakech was going to be welcoming me and my cousin before the end of 2015. With Morocco being on my list of countries to visit for a while now, the forecasted good weather in Marrakech and great flight + hotel deals were not to be missed in the month of November. Marrakech has always been the city that appeals and stands out to me most when Morocco is mentioned, so it had to be the location we would explore first. The quick research that I did do in preparation for the trip could never really quite prepare me for what was in store. It wasn't necessarily a 'culture shock', but the diversity and hustle and bustle lifestyle was endearing and some what educational. With the amount of tourists that fill the streets, there is still a sense of strong culture pulsating through the city.

The vibrant energy and charm of this city has definitely stuck to me like glue - from finding hidden treasures in the long winding souks, driving hard bargains with the locals, devouring a few too many traditional Tajines, to developing a strong love for Maghrebi/Moroccon mint tea, there was a lot to love. Marrakech can definitely put one into a sensory overload. Five days there just wasn't enough, and I left wanting to fervently roam it's lively streets once again. Fear not, Morocco will be seeing me again, as I'm keen to visit and explore the country's other cities too.

  1. You definately did a lot more than I did, having only spent 48 hours there. I would love to go up the Atlas Mountains and experience the country outside of the city. Excellent photos, as always.
