I’m having a serious craving for travel and it got me thinking a lot about the last big trip I took. We did a country tour with a guide, which proved to be more than helpful. Over almost two weeks, we saw the Sahara, the High Atlas, experienced Berber life and culture, ate many new foods (yes, more than half were tagine), explored many cities including Fes and Marrakech where we saw the oldest leather tannery and saw how traditional Berber rugs are made by hand. We visited ancient Roman ruins in Volubilis, and saw one of the world’s oldest structures.
If you’ve never been to Morocco, or are thinking about it, I would highly recommend it! We did a lot in two weeks, but if we happened to go back some day, we would probably hit fewer cities and spend longer in a couple of our favorite places instead. It’s an incredibly beautiful and diverse country as far as the landscape goes. There are mountains with cold climates, beaches, caves, dry desert landscape, and of course the magnificent Sahara Desert. There are so many moments that truly took my breath away, so I wanted to share some photos to anyone else needing a mental break, or wanting to get away and explore!
