Moroccan beauty

One place that is high on my travel wish list is Morocco. The colour, culture, architecture, decor and exotic elements all appeal to me. And of course the intricate tiling and textiles too. One day, I’ll get there, in the meanwhile my inspiration folder is growing with Moroccan inspired tear sheets and cut outs! Have any of you travelled to Morocco? What are your experiences, I’d love to know.

    Morocco is definitely on my list of places I'd love to visit.

    The architecture is truly breathtaking, and I'd love to enjoy authentic food in a busy little restaurant.

    My husband and I went backpacking in Morocco for 2 weeks in 2008. It was one of the hardest journeys as the haggling by men is consistent and scary at times but looking back it was the most cultural rewarding trip we had been on. Chefchaouen is a city completely painted blue but a lot of Europeans go there for the hash but is was one of the most beautiful. Fez with its 1000's of little streets in the Medina was fascinating felt at times like we were living in Calcutta. Fez also has the leather tanneries and artist that still carve everything by hand. Some of them can only carve for half a day otherwise they go blind. Marrakesh was a bit of dissapointment but we has osme bad experiences there. Tourist unfortunately always stands out like a sore thumb in Morocco so its easy to be taken for a ride which we, and we think of ourselves as seasoned and savvy travellers, unfortunate to experience. Essouira by the sea is beautiful but the highlight was our time in the desert. The Sahara is one of the most awe inspiring natural sight I have ever seen and we slept under stars which will forever be one of the highlights of my life. I will email you a link to some of my pictures. I will definitely go again in a heart beat. Such a pitty that one can't bring everything back home because it is one of the most authentic culturally and artistically rich places I have ever been. My advice would just always be to be cautious and well informed. Some times the hard times makes for the fondest memories
