Riad Laarous, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
Everything glitters in this breathtaking shop: antique Berber silver, amber jewelry, inlaid mother-of-pearl furniture, and ceramic bowls full of gleaming beads and stones. 3 Fhal Chidmi, Rue Mouassine, 212/(0) 24-442-2578. This appeared in the...
5 Derb Zerbtana, Fès 30110, Morocco
The tangled maze of narrow alleys in the medina in Fes, Morocco requires that all deliveries are made by push cart or donkey. I woke this guy from his nap to transport my luggage to my riad - which was most helpful, since I had no idea where it...
Hay Ait Skato, Fès 30050, Morocco
On my travels, a highlight has to be capturing images of local people, either chatting and then asking for a photo (usually positive) or like this one, a candid shot. While staying in Fes, in Morocco, I went to the Souk every day. It's an amazing...
9 Derb Lamsside, Fes 30200, Morocco
Staying in The Medina in Fes, Morocco is one of the most amazing experiences travel can offer. One of the surprises was the people and how helpful they were. Our Riad owners arranged for baggage handling to our waiting taxi. A local touch that...

Rue Abou Abbas El Sebti، 40000, Morocco

Circuit de la palmeraie, Douar Abiad, Marrakech 40000, Morocco
No trip to Marrakesh is complete without a camel ride, right? We took a short taxi ride from the medina to La Palmeraie, a palm grove about 20 minutes from the city center. Off the main road of La Palmeraie were guides here and there, waiting with...
Jamaâ El-Fna, Marrakech 40000, Morocco
There are plenty of wonderful foods to eat in Marrakesh, from tagines to saffron-infused rices and more. But one of my favourites is to head to the bustling Jamaa al-Fna in the old medina and sit at food stall "Stall 32". Located in the middle of...
Place du jardin public، 248 Bd Sour Jdid، الدار البيضاء 20250, Morocco
Ok, so there really was no Rick's Cafe from the movie Casablanca. It as a set of a gin joint where she walked in, where Sam played it again, and where he looked at her. But the authenticity really doesn't matter because when you're in Casablanca,...
Boulevard de la Corniche, Casablanca 20000, Morocco
The other famous landmark in Casablanca is the second largest Mosque in the world. The minarets defy proportions. Intricate Arabic carved into marble walls makes the grand building feel accessible, but really we visitors are just meant to stand...
40 Rue des Banques, Djema el Fna, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
The thing that struck me the most on our travels through the Kasbah were the façades of the old city were all the same, be it new or old, rich or poor. Unlike the American culture of showing their wealth for all to see and to envy, the...
