In pictures: a journey through Morocco

Morocco-Door

On the 18th May we flew out to the exotic North African country to start our seven night Moroccan adventure with the independent travel experts Rickshaw Travel. Starting in Marrakech we tackled the terracotta mazes of the Medina, learned how to cook tagines in Lalle Fatima’s cooking school, drove through the hair-pin bends of the Atlas mountains, rode camels through the Sahara desert, explored ancient fortress towns and stayed some of the most delicately ornate Riads we’ve ever seen. It was truly an unforgettable and gorgeously unique travel experience and one of the most photogenic places we’d ever seen. Here is our journey through Morocco, in pictures…

With roots in Bavaria, a home in England and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 35 countries on trips and living in both Dublin and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations away from the crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not travelling, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, wandering the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting around for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world - Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
