It’s almost been a year since I was last in Morocco. For a while there, the country was beginning to feel like a second home, but things change and other opportunities beckon.
During my many trips, I fell for the sights and smells of the souks, the delectable food and the vast history – so different from where I’m from and much more romantic as a result.
Romans, Berbers, Arabs and the French – their presence is apparent in everything, from the ancient ruins of Volubilis and the tiled mosques and madrassahs to jewellery heavy with metal, baubles and meaning and decadent art deco buildings, crumbling at the seams.
I’ve shared some of these photos before on Instagram, but felt the need to delve into them again – as well as show you a few new ones. These are mostly taken in Marrakech and Essaouira, but there are a couple from Casablanca and Rabat too.
Have you been to Morocco? I’d love you to share your thoughts and/or questions on this most beautiful of countries below.
