Photo Diary: Moroccan Views

When I moved to Morocco I was expecting to live in the desert and see camels everywhere. Call me naive – I call myself optimistic. I love the desert and I love camels. But in reality, what I found in Morocco was a varity of landscapes and cityscapes – all unexpected. The Northern part of the country is lush green rolling hills, while just East of Marrakech are mountains with high peaks and deep valleys. Here are some Moroccan Views:

Top 5 Favourites: Morocco Edition

I was in Morocco for 2 months. I was working during my time. I was able to take the slow approach to learning about the people and the culture of Morocco.

A Farewell Moroccan Feast

In lieu of me leaving Morocco, ok actually, in lieu of the other intern working with me at Peacock Pavilions family visiting, which happened to coincide with the time I was leaving; We had a fabulous Moroccan meal to celebrate. Celebrate their arrival to Marrakech, Morocco, not my departure. Or maybe they were celebrating that. Either way, we had a feast, the drinks were pretty, the food was constructed beautifully, and the dessert was melt in your mouth delicious.

Budget: Morocco in April

Budget: Morocco in April

Going to Morocco cost more than I expected. Partly because I had to make tourist mistakes and get ripped off at the airport needing a taxi to the train station. The man was a horrible human being, lied, yelled, and I just flipped him off, paid him the extortionate fee, and stormed off. Otherwise, Morocco is beautiful and I love this country. Except the people at the airport. Evil People. Where else did my money go?

Saadian Tombs: A Hidden Beauty

Saadian Tombs: A Hidden Beauty

When something can stay hidden for over 320 Years – you know it will be beautiful. It remained untouched, unlooted, and this long neglect guarded them and helped to preserve them. They were built during the reign of Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur in the late 1500’s and undiscovered until 1917. The Saadian Tombs are the Hidden Beauty of Marrakech.

My Moroccan Lifestyle

My Moroccan Lifestyle

When I received the word that I was wanted for the workaway in Morocco I was thrilled. I knew I would be working in a small boutique hotel. I’d checked out the website and knew I would be helping out in whatever way I could. What I didn’t realize was how LUXURIOUS my lifestyle would be. This is My Moroccan Lifestyle.
