The Beauty of Marrakech: Through the Lens

It was our first time in Marrakech.

We’ve been wanting to visit the country of Morocco for quite some time. When our plane landed, we took a taxi to the Medina; the old walled city where we’d be spending the next week exploring. The Medina  is exactly what we envisioned. It’s busy, full of life and hectic. It’s where the old world still clings to life as a new world emerges around it. Snake charmers and street artists perform for money in the middle of the main square dJemma El Fna and thousands of stalls are set up in the Souks selling everything from carpets and lamps to dates and mint tea. It’s a place to get lost in. Walking through the Medina is part of the adventure of being in Morocco.

Let yourself get lost and see where each turn takes you through this historical city. Or you can simply enjoy this visual journey from Dave of our favourite photographs from our time living as a local in Marrakech Morocco. Enjoy!
