The Marvels of Morocco — The Wanderbee

Morocco Mania – I had been viewing this itinerary on WOW Club’s website for quite a few years. In 2013 I nearly signed up for it but the dates didn’t work and I went to South Africa instead. This was my second trip with a women’s travel group and through this post, I really want […]

Tourism in Marrakech — Discover Morocco

After a 14 hour trip from the Sahara we arrived in one of the Morocco’s major cities: Marrakech. As many of Moroccon cities Marrakech is packed with vendors and their shops in the medina.

Marrakech, Morocco: How to be wonderfully lost in the medina —

“Adventures are the best way to learn.” I found myself stepping out of El Fenn Hotel‘s doorway and into an alley with terra-cotta painted crumbling walls and a million people rushing by. I had a hint of the medina being a bustling bewitching place but nothing really prepares you for something like it once you’re […]

Staying Out of Trouble in Marrakech! — The Travelling Giraffe

Marrakech is an exotic, beautiful, vibrant and chaotic city; full of snake charmers, monkey tamers, henna ladies, shoe shiners, and of course the wonderfully disorientating souks. It is definitely a destination to put on your bucket list! I have travelled to many countries but in my eyes Marrakech is by far the most different city […]

Sourcing Ras el Hanout in the Spice Market of Marrakech — spicebox travels

Morocco’s legendary spice markets were one of the main reasons I visited. I envisioned piles of spices, some known to me, others, new. My husband booked a room in a riad (traditional house) walking distance from the Spice Square in Marrakech’s medina so that shopping for spices could be one of our first activities. The market, known in Moroccan […]

Sunlight and snow in the Atlas Mountains — The Adventures of Pip

The Atlas Mountains never cease to be breathtaking, but a few months ago we were driving along a remote road that traverses this spectacular range when heavy snowfall had blanketed the landscape. The sun was out blazing and it was absolutely stunning at every turn of the road. We had left the Todra Gorge that […]

Memories of Morocco: Ascending Jebel Toubkal — Voyage Freelance Writing

I have always loved hiking through mountains. It probably started from my childhood (and adulthood) interest in the Hobbit and LOTR. I have been ingrained with the idea that there can be no adventure more fulfilling than the journey through a sheer mountain pass, scenery so grand it’s like stepping into Tolkien’s pages. I can […]
