Morocco 2018

Morocco was my first step into Africa and it was amazing. There was so much diversity of culture and language in this northern country that I could barely fathom what the rest of the continent would be like. During the trip we went through many cities and towns, getting a glimpse at each. The entire trip was filled with color, animals and great architecture. Since this trip was much longer than my usual, I’ll be segmenting the photos by city.  My photos were split between my Lumia 950 and my LG V30 (Until I broke my LG V30 in the pool...).

Casablanca

Casablanca

Despite the romanticism that may have been created by the movie with the same name, Casablanca isn’t that. This is not to say that Casablanca wasn’t enjoyable, it’s just a big city with everyone on the move and trying to make some money. Casablanca had a mixture of old and contemporary architecture. The Hassan II Mosque was a great site with a lot of history. At sunset all the kids were gathered near the mosque, jumping into the water playing; it was cool to see.

Chefchaouen

Chefchaouen

Also known as the blue city, Chefchaouen was the highlight of my trip to Morocco. It was a treat for the eyes, ears and stomach. Walking through the blue medina you would hear English, Arabic, French and Spanish. It is also quite a shift from the normal tourist experience. The city sits within the mountains and gives off a serene vibe that just calms the mind.

FEZ

FEZ

A very old city rich with culture and interesting people. In Fez stands one of the oldest medinas in Morocco. During our time there, they were celebrating Eid al-Adha so, most shops closed early and there weren’t many tourists around. This worked out in our favor when it came to visiting monuments and getting to see how Moroccans celebrated Eid. Once the holiday was over, things went from 0 to 100 quickly.

Atlas Mountains

Atlas Mountains

On the road to Merzouga and the Sahara Desert we made our way across the countryside. During the trip we passed through Ifrane (They call it the Switzerland of Morocco) and the Cedar forest. This was all through the Atlas Mountains where I saw some crazy views.

Merzouga

Merzouga

A desert oasis that’s instantly captivating the moment the dunes catch your eye. Everyone we met was very friendly and welcoming. Strange plants, to sparkling rocks, Merzouga felt like I was hundreds of miles away from anything familiar; it was a great feeling.
