MOROCCO TRAVEL BLOG
Morocco Travel Blog: a work in progress on what makes Morocco unique in the world.
And unique it is. Separated from Europe by merely a few kilometers of sea, the contrast couldn’t be more poignant: from troglodytes living in caves and nomads taking their camel, sheep and goat herds from the warm Sahara desert in winter to High Atlas plateaus in summer, snake charmers, rock engravings and century old Berber granaries to well- off Westerners letting their imagination free and creating some of the most original boutique hotels, luxury camps and eco lodges this side of the Mediterranean, Morocco never ceases to seduce, in a constant cultural ebb and flow. And there is no better way to capture this essence at its best than constantly traveling around Morocco since 2006, visiting the places, chatting to the people, experiencing first hand this paradox: despite the ever growing outside influence, the local customs, traditions, languages and cultures have everything but disappeared. From interviews with hotel owners that have left their life and world behind and settled in Morocco, to the restoration of the granaries of the south, initiatives to educate girls in rural Morocco, the ruins of the pasha’s palace in Telouet, how to take on the Erg Chigaga dunes or the best things to see and do in Essaouira: this travel blog on Morocco puts together some of the places and experiences that we think make Morocco unique and that you, the traveler, can experience first- hand, too.
