Marrakesh, the last and too short stop

Finally and unfortunately got to the end of this trip. I was anticipating Marrakesh so badly, I had been dreaming of visiting the city for so long. And yet, I was only there for a day and a half. It is now enough to know I want to go back one day. So colourful, so … Continue reading Marrakesh, the last and too short stop

Tangier, the 7th (short) stop

We stayed for about a day in Tangier. Arrived before lunchtime, having sunshine to welcome us, and departed when it was already pitch dark to Marrakech, on an overnight train. We weren't going to be there for long, but I was told it was probably enough and my first impression told me the same. The … Continue reading Tangier, the 7th (short) stop

Chefchaouen, the blue city – the 5th stop

One of the most Instagram worthy spot of Morocco was gloomy when we arrived. It was pouring. The rain that hadn't fallen during a weirdly dry winter was falling then. And I kept trying not to be disappointed. We got off the bus and ran through the thick rain to the van that would takes … Continue reading Chefchaouen, the blue city – the 5th stop

Visiting a Pottery in Fez – a gallery

There are some things that are just photogenic, and the beautiful ceramics of Fez are definitely one of these things. You really don't need to try hard to get beautiful pictures. But when you look at these photos I want you to know that this is only a result of hard, strenuous, detailed work. I … Continue reading Visiting a Pottery in Fez – a gallery

The Golden Doors of the Royal Palace of Fez

Morocco is a country of contrasts, with a very unequal distribution of wealth amongst its people. The king of Morocco owns everything and his face is present in every single public establishment - from train stations, restaurants to the simple small stalls in the street selling orange juice. It is a legal obligation - meaning … Continue reading The Golden Doors of the Royal Palace of Fez

Fez, Morocco the 4th stop – a reflection from above

It was a dark morning in Fez. I woke up in a room of a 3-star hotel. The wi-fi was only available in the reception so I couldn't check the weather lazily on my phone (meaning without leaving the bed to go to have a peek through the window). Reluctantly, I got off my bed. … Continue reading Fez, Morocco the 4th stop – a reflection from above

Volubilis, Morocco – a brief stop into a Roman past

Tell me about ancient civilizations, fallen Empires, and I am all ears. For a brief time as a child I wanted to be an archeologist. Yes, excavating things from the past sounded like a very exciting job, but soon I came to realise it looked a lot more excited in the movies than in real … Continue reading Volubilis, Morocco – a brief stop into a Roman past

Moulay Idriss, Morocco – the 3rd stop

Literally carved from the mountain, Moulay Idriss would be our third stop in the North Moroccan adventure. It is one of the country's most important pilgrimage sites. While the utmost goal of a Muslim should be to go to Mecca, poorer people have other options closer to home. Moulay Idriss is one of those places. … Continue reading Moulay Idriss, Morocco – the 3rd stop
