Morocco stole my heart

Morocco stole my heart


From the peaks of the high Atlas to the carnivalesque street theatre of the Djemaa El Fna, however, it was the ceremonial pouring of the fresh mint tree that grounded me in the place. We went camel trekking, shopped in the souks, got lost in the Medina, enjoyed the flavours of the tajines, embraced the views as we sat on the terraces and slept in a beautiful boutique riad.

Its fair to say the Kingdom of Morocco stole my heart with its Arabian and European cultural influences, the warm hospitality from locals and of course that gorgeous Mediterranean weather.

Day 1

We were welcomed at Riad El Miria Palais, our home for the next 5 days, with some fresh mint tea by the pool before settling into our suite. After a complimentary traditional moroccan lunch, we prepared for the day ahead and stepped out to the Medina.  We were met with snake charmers, women ready to paint you with their beautiful designs and the of course the market.

Be prepared to be sold everything from everyone but also to haggle over goods you wish to purchase. We were sucked in almost immediately.
During the evening we headed over to Fuego Latino, a Brazilian restaurant with a live band and entertainment throughout the night

Day two

We decided on this day to attempt to stay cool by spending the entire day at Oasiria,a water park, before heading back to the Medina for the night markets. The night markets were filled with thousands of people, hundreds of stalls and a lively atmosphere.

Day three

We rode camels! I love a new experience and what an experience this was. We were able to ride around the villages and welcomed into the home of a local for some mint tea before mounting back onto the camel and heading back. The rest of the day we relaxed by the riad pool and enjoyed the weather.

Day four

On our final day we decided to really dive into the winding Medina maze. We were lost for hours and shopped until our pockets were run dry. before returning back to riad to again relax by the pool and eat. 



Overall, Morocco is definitely a country I hope to return to and experience once again. 
We booked through www.onthebeach.co.uk and for four adults paid roughly £350 each flight, hotel and breakfast included, which we were able to pay in instalments. 

Until next time,
