Morocco through my eyes

14 July 2015

Here my 1:1 guide to the south of Morocco and Marrakech - the extraordinary city of contrasts.

Since I met him 5 years ago, all our gifts - no exception - have been focused on the thing we love most in the entire world: Discover the world together. This time, our adventure was located in Morocco, a 5-day tailor-made roadtrip crossing the Atlas, sleeping with locals in Zagora, getting lost in the Sahara desert and ending up in the ancient labyrinth of Marrakech.

Everything was fascinating from the architecture, prints, aromatic food, music...but the place I loved most was the time in the desert. I have never walked in such a silent atmosphere. 100% breath-taking!
