Morocco: Spices, souks & Sahara
Our time spent in Morocco explores the nooks of Marrakesh, the sweeping landscapes of the Atlas Mountains and labyrinth that is Fes. Here is all you need to know for an exotic Moroccan road trip.
Morocco is an exotic destination. Being only a few hours from Europe it’s almost a weekend destination. Yet when you first step foot into Marrakesh, it’s easy to feel like you’ve travelled back in time. The packed laneways of the old towns appear to run as they would have done a century ago. Donkeys parade past storefronts carrying goods. Local women sit in doorways tending to their crafts. Kids play in the squares, drinking from town fountains. But when you get out of the old towns, the landscape comes alive with the golden orange hues of the Saharan Desert. Spending time in Morocco allows you to see exquisite Moorish details, explore mud-brick movie sets and live like a Bedouin.
