Sandboarding

Maktub! He is saying this word few times and then he’s writing it in the sand using his finger.  Then he is telling me what does it mean. Literally, It means “written”, but as phrase, it means “it’s written”, “this is fate” or “this is the way it meant to be”. Mohamed – the guide, is explaining me that people in Morocco really believe that if something happens – good or bad, it happened for a reason and they have to accept it. And maybe that’s why they are happy people. 

Alexander Stankov

El Bahia Palace

El Bahia Palace was built between XIX and XX centuries: it takes its name from the favourite bride of Ahmad b. Musa, the visir of Morocco at the beginning of XIX century. The palace consists of several rooms, decorated in marble and wood, which develops around luxurious gardens, and it’s in perfect Islamic style: certainly, it’s not missing the inspiration from the previous Islamic architecture, especially in the colours of the mosaics.

Marrakesh:How and when to visit

Transfer: It is indicated that you exchange the equivalent of 150 dirhams at the airport for taxi to the center. A bus service is also available for 30 dirhams/ person and it has wi-fi (you have to ask the driver for password). It is ideal because you can start a navigation app to your hotel from the bus. You can later get around towards other cities with a variety of transport options such as Morocco train lines (French built), long distance buses that are operated both publicly and privately or taxis: Petit-taxi (small cab) or grand-taxi (large).

Where are located these two lakes?

The Lake of Tislit is a lake located in Morocco’s High Atlas Oriental National Park, near to Imilchil town, and the Lake of Isli is near to the first lake by almost 9km (two hours walk for hikers), with an altitude of 2272 and 2266 meters.

Motorcycle Diaries.Why not start your own.

If you’ve had the chance to watch ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’ then you will understand the appeal of getting on the back of a bike and exploring a scene untouched by many others – If it’s a trip to Nepal, Cambodia, The Dominican Republic or Morocco, or maybe just exploring the local surroundings around a resort in Vanuatu. Wherever you may be, taking a voyage of adventure and self-discovery is what every traveller pursues, a chance to understand how ones-self fits into the bigger picture.

Sheree Bazzi

Sip

 Fans of the film Casablanca often leave the eponymous city disappointed. Casablanca, the city, is far from the glamorous world occupied by Ingrid Bergman. Many people are drawn to Morocco by their love for the classic film. Rather than making a cinematic pilgramage to the city itself I would direct them rooftop bar of La Salama. It provides all of the colonial architecture and hollywood glamour that the city lacks. The bars and restaurants of Jamaa El Fna are all touristy.  This one is no exception. What is exceptional, however, is the design features, cocktail menu and sunset views. Think beautiful leather chairs and ornate arches that frame a view over the medina. Like a local: no. Like a hollywood starlet shot in black and white: oh yes indeed.

Fez: the most genuine and historic Moroccan experience

The city of Fez is still not the most obvious choice when considering a trip to Morocco; that can be explained by the still growing travel industry (not as many riads as, let’s say, Marrakech), an airport with a more limited set of connections, the fact that it’s geographically away from the Atlantic and the international media coverage, which is still very much shadowed by other more popular destinations. All of this is actually the basis for the greatest compliment and an even greater reason for visiting this amazing metropolis: Fez is still a relatively “unspoiled by tourism” city (at least compared to the other ones of course). Its medina (Fes el Bali) still has the look and feel of the old times, with artisanal industries and other genuine craft-works sustaining the lifestyles of the people that live here since it was created in the 8th century, making it little arguably the oldest and largest of the entire world.

7 Reasons Why You Should Visit Morocco

Abdellah Ait-hamou

Touristic vs. real Morocco

My first tip for anyone who really wants to experience another culture is to make effort to get out of main touristic spots if it´s even slightly possible. I am not saying to skip the Eiffel tower when in Paris, but you might be surprised what difference does it make, especially regarding mentality of people. Try to visit a place that wasn´t stated on any „must see“ list and compare the difference. I have visited many countries, but Morocco was for sure the most contradictory when it comes to comparing its touristic and ordinary side. I was lucky to attend 3 weeks long volunteering project in a small village, far from places like Jemaa el-Fnaa (Marrakesh´s main square).

Karin K

Making that decision to visit Morocco

Making that decision to visit Morocco I was very nervous when planning my trip to Morocco, as it was the first time I was traveling beyond the European capitals and getting my initial taste of Africa. Although I understood the fact that the Morocco was much more culturally diverse, I just did not know how I would adapt to it or if I would get a culture shock!

Exploring Scotland: Things to do on the Orkney Islands

This is wonderful for kite flying enthusiasts! However, tree surgeons, lumberjacks and tree-climbing goats from Morocco may be disappointed. But if you DO happen to be a kite flying enthusiast, I would definitely recommend Orkney! This place is windy.

Climbing the highest peak in Northern Africa

It all began in the summer of 2015 when I and a friend of mine decided spontaneously to go to Morocco for New Year and we bought the tickets right away!

Morocco: A journey through the desert

Everybody goes to Morocco expecting to see an endless desert. It’s not like that, it’s better! When you leave Marrakesh and head south, you’ll pass a huge chain of mountains and canyons. There is lots of villages around those mountains, and you can stop around to take pictures of this breathtaking view. The most beautiful canyons are the Gorges du Dades (that are called that way because of the finger shaped mountains) and the Gorges du Todra, one of the most beautiful views I’ve ever had in my life!

The oriental city of Marrakesh, the major city of Morocco, was nothing like we expected.
