You have to live the experience that is Morocco. It’s hard to describe in words really, but there is something magical about that place. Despite the rocky start for many a tourist who ventures outside the well-lit path (which in my case included almost getting robbed and beaten up the first night), the country opens up and embraces you in its unforgettable atmosphere and culture. In the words of my friend Jawad, “Where you come from you might have watches, but here we’ve got time”!
And just like that, somewhere in between wandering around the local souks and haggling for trinkets, drinking the most incredible mint tea (also known as the Moroccan whiskey!) and tasting the flavorful local meals, or riding through the mighty Atlas mountains and sleeping under the stars in the Sahara, you fall in love with it.
