Located in North Africa, the Kingdom of Morocco nearly touches Spain and has a magnificent coastline that greets both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. From the snowcapped tips of the High Atlas Mountains to the rippling dunes of the wind-swept Sahara and the modern streets of Casablanca, the country’s incredible geographic and cultural diversity keeps you amazed at each new turn.
A few days after arriving in Morocco we found ourselves in the beautiful city of Chefchaouen nestled in the Rif Mountains. Founded in 1471, it’s an enchanting maze of white and blue-washed walls, hidden doors, endless stairways and vibrant streets that leave you feeling as if you’re lost in time.
In our journey through Morocco, we got lost in the historic medina of Fes, spent nights awestruck by the stars above the Sahara’s sea of sand, and were greeted by snake charmers in Marrakesh. Even after spending countless hours driving and immersing ourselves in this beautiful culture for two weeks, we have only just scratched the surface.
