Postcards from Morocco

I enjoyed my first trip to Morocco immensely. My first stop was the the Atlas Mountains for a spot of hiking. Next, I headed to Marrakech, losing myself within the warren-like medina. To finish the trip, I headed to Morocco’s Atlantic Cost, where I experienced the chilled out hedonistic vibes of Essaouira. One thing I learned is that Morocco is a very photogenic country. There is a bounty of beautiful architecture to behold. A kaleidoscope of vibrant colours please the eyes. In the evenings, there were some of the most splendid sunsets imaginable. I certainly plan on heading back there sometime!
