A post that I saw earlier today on my Twitter feed has inspired me to write about Morocco. I love Morocco and when we can travel safely again, this is one of the places that I would like to visit. The weather is very pleasant during spring and although it is not a really long flight from the UK, you feel a million miles away when you visit.
The North African country borders the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. It is a wonderful destination to visit for a cultural change. It is inspiring, different and enchanting for so many reasons. I also love the food.
Here are three places that should be seen:
It was actually a picture of Chefchaouen that inspired me to write this quick blog post. The beautiful blue streets popped up on my Twitter feed. Chefchaouen is situated in northwest Morocco and it is famous for its striking architecture. All of the buildings in its old medina appear in a vivid shade of blue, which gives an amazing contrast. It is an incredible place to visit and you won’t want to put your camera away.
This is a popular beach destination and the blustery coastline is good for those who enjoy water sports. The likes of kitesurfing and windsurfing are particular popular in this part of Morocco as the conditions are favourable. It is also known as a place where the argan oil trade is well established.
I probably should have put Marrakesh first on this list as it is the most famous place in Morocco. The Medina is a wonderful maze and you can get lost among the food stalls, market areas and souks. With botanical gardens and some amazingly traditional accommodation options, it is a brilliant city to explore for an authentic change of scene.
