Morocco

Things to do in Morocco :

  • Take a desert safari complete with a camel train, chicken tanjine and melon dinner and sleeping outside under the stars.
  • Go to Fez and visit the leather dying vats, the carpet shops and the incredible medina that completely seduces all of your senses.
  • Travel to Chefchaouen and experience all artsy, laid back blue-ness the mountain city has to offer.

Hotels in Morocco :

  • Riads are historic homes in Morocco that have been renovated into a sort of boutique hotel with a large courtyard surrounded by rooms.

Food in Morocco :

  • Mint tea is the drink of choice in Morocco – with its own accompanying ritual and copious amount of sugar!

Understanding Ramadan in Morocco

May 16, 2019 8 Comments »

The sun dips down in the sky disappearing into the Atlantic Ocean. I seldom have watched a sunset so intently; waiting, waiting, waiting for that last little sliver to disappear. So much rested on that last sliver. My gaze moved from the sliver of sun to the restaurant around me.  Families and couples sat at […]

Navigating a flight cancellation and cultural divide in a foreign airport

After nearly 11 months of travel, it finally happened – I finally reached the end of my rope. Thanks to Egypt Air and Royal Air Maroc Airlines – I nearly had a colossal nervous breakdown. I actually had visions of me ending up in a Moroccan jail, arrested by the airport police in Casablanca. This […]

Morocco - Rich in Color and Culture

View Morocco Photography I’m sure you might be surprised that I didn’t use the obvious title choice for this Moroccan send-off post – Rockin’ the Kasbah… I did actually think about it, but that’s not what I think of when I examine my parting thoughts about Morocco.

Argan Tree Climbing Goats in Morocco

After the first week, someone in my group mentioned in passing something about the Moroccan goats that […]

Morocco Bus Ride from Chefchaouen to Tangier

Camping in the Sahara Desert

View Morocco Photography We had been driving for about 4 hours when we turned off the bumpy road onto the flat expanse of desert. You could see for miles. There were no roads, just a few tire tracks and a bunch of signs sticking in the sand advertising various hotels that were nowhere to be […]

Cultural Trekking in Morocco with Intrepid Travel Atlas Mountains

We spent our first week in Morocco mainly enjoying the countryside. We had a couple of days in Marrakech to look around the Medina (old neighborhood) and the souks – it was nice, but not a place I would go back to. I have mainly enjoyed getting out of the bigger cities with crowds of […]

Travel and Transportation in Morocco

View Morocco Photography For the last week in addition to my 50 lbs of luggage, I’ve been toting around eye drops, lip balm, and alcohol – welcome to Morocco. It’s dry here…the orange ground begging for water, the sun burning brightly every day. My eyes are thirsting for liquid as are my lips and my […]
