Travelling to Morocco has always been my dream since childhood. I have always dreamed for riding a camel, witness the desert, discover maze-like medinas, shop in souks, and drink mint tea with Berbers.
As I stood overlooking the Sahara desert one morning, wondering at the musical, rolling dunes of the barren land, I understood that my fantasy had come real.
For miles and miles, the sand dunes rolled like red-shaded waves in the ocean. I can’t believe myself that I was eventually somewhere I had dreamed about.
I spend 2 weeks in the country and stuffed myself on couscous, soak my body weight in mint tea, trekked, and captivated the sights & sounds of Morocco. Here in this post I am going to share my morocco travel experience & some favorite moments during the trip.
Camel Trekking In The Barren Land Of Sahara:
Camel trekking in Morocco simply can’t be missed. Though riding a camel for one hour is very uncomfortable, but witnessing the wonderful shade of the barren land from very close, camping with Bedouins, and looking at a million of stars with no pollution made it all precious. There is a creepy silence in the barren land when the wind stops and you get to feel a wonderful sense of stillness, just sitting and soaking yourself in the nature.
Wondering in the Medinas:
The medinas are the historic centers of each town in Morocco. Here you will discover twisting & turning streets where eateries, shops, markers, and houses all line the avenues in building apparently too close to one another and too old to stay much longer. If you are someone who likes to get lost, then the medians are the place you should be. I spent hours pondering through them; it was really thrilling I must say.
Explore the Beach And Seafood Of Essaouria:
My beloved town in Morocco, Essaouria is placed a few hours drive from Marrakesh on the Atlantic shore and is an admired beach destination for travelers. I loved the tranquil ambiance of the town, the sea air, the lack of aggressive touts, and fresh fish as well.
You must visit the beautiful fish market in the city, where all the fisherman sells their fish to the customers. Later, visit the tiny fish stalls close by the main square where one can enjoy grilled seafood without breaking their bank. Me and three friends of mine took a meal here for $75 USD; we shared a lobster, 8 tiger prawns, 2 fish more than 1kg, and ½ kilo of squid. It was really mouth-watering!
Marrakech was everything I thought it’d be – a contemporary blend of Moroccan & international customs with the most assortment of appetizing international food and stunning construction in the medina.
The hectic pace exposed a town and folks always on the move. The well-known Jemaa el-Fnaa square is really the chaos everybody explains: thousands of people during night eating, shopping, listening to bands & storytellers, getting tattoos, and watching jugglers. It is one of the most frantic, but interesting people-watching place in Morocco. I still can’t believe myself: how big & full it was!
So, friends these are the things that make me to visit Morocco again and again. Hope you visit Morocco once in your life and write something spectacular about this amazing land.
