photo journey to marrakech and the nearby countryside in morocco
Morocco, one of the 2014 hip destinations is mysterious, vibrant and full of life. It’s about snake charmers in the market, beautiful old palaces and gardens where Yves Saint Laurent drew his inspiration from, haggling for pretty scarves and trinkets, tasting street food and riding camels in the desert.
For Europeans it’s one of the closest and cheapest destination where one can feel exotic, different life from home with a feel that is still authentic: narrow streets of the Jewish quarter, the labyrinth of the souk, scents of incense and the muezzin’s call to prayer lingering in the air. It’s colourful, a bit chaotic and lots of fun.
Our family did a short, five-day long trip to Marrakech and we explored the city and a bit of the mountains surrounding it. It was an experience we absolutely loved, and hopefully we’ll be back to explore more in the future. As a first post from Morocco I wanted to share some of the moments we captured there.
