Morocco in Pictures

 "In a world filled with beige interiors, Morocco is the perfect antidote" 

Maryam Montague

 

Morocco is an amazing country, filled with colors, contrasts, beauty and treasures. We are often asked why we are so obsessed with this country and why we ended up here. In a previous blog post (see "Why Marrakech?" from October) we tried to explain why fell in love with Morocco and Marrakech.

There is the food, the culture, the architecture, the climate, the people and the exotic mystique. We love the many faces of Morocco. Where else can you find the snowy mountains and the great ocean just next to the desert? If you travel beyond our beloved Marrakech and leave the tourist trap Agadir behind there are adventures and dramatic nature to be found all over the country.

Perhaps the best way to explain the many faces of Morocco and why we love it is by pictures. Below you find some of our favorite photos that capture the magic and diversity of this country. The Sahara desert, the Atlantic coast, the Kasbahs, the Medinas, the Souks, the Mountains, the Architecture and the Colors. 

Enjoy!

The people of Morocco

It is a magical country and we feel very fortunate to have a house here. We look forward to explore Morocco further during the years to come. Starting next Saturday it will be our permanent home and we become true "Marrakchis" (people who own a house in Marrakech and live there). Come join us!

Have a great weekend,
