Volunteering with Education For All, a nonprofit helping girls in the rural Atlas Mountains attend school, I spent 4 months in the Spring of 2012 in Morocco. When I wasn't teaching or creating lessons for French, computer, culture, or dance, I managed to travel a bit and get these shots:

Avenue Ben Mohamed El Alaoui, N° 1 Takharbicht، Laayoune Rcif، Fes 30200, Morocco
Probably one of my favorite souvenirs from Morocco are the mini tagines I bought from a friend's shop and a pottery factory we visited in Fes, where these mini tagines were also available in what I've been told are the city's emblematic blue and...

Preserving food in salt is a centuries old method that crosses cultures. In Morocco, they salt preserve all sorts of vegetables as well as lemons. Every market you go to, you see containers and jars packed with all sorts of preserved veggies....

Rue d'Oujda, Essaouira 44000, Morocco
When in the laid-back beach town of Essaouira (a 3-hour bus trip from Marrakech), be sure to head over and visit the port where you'll find ships heading out to sea and coming in to harbor with the day's catch. You'll also see huddles of the...

Chances are if you climb Jbel (Mt.) Toubkal in Morocco, the highest point in North Africa and second in Africa only to Kilimanjaro, you'll spend the night at one of the refuges at the base. We stayed in the Refuge du Toubkal--Les Mouflons after...

Teryana Kebira, Fès, Morocco
Though I usually stick to budget-friendly hostels for accommodation, Morocco is definitely one place I don't mind springing for something a little nicer. This is because, in addition to indulging in my love for Moroccan-inspired decorating,...
Save Place
Medina, Meknes, Morocco
Something I'll always carry with me from my time spent in Morocco is an appreciation for the country's artisanal style of decorating and in its own way this photo captures so much of what I love about it. The wash of yellow on the walls reminds me...
Save Place
Medina, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
In an effort to remember and visually preserve my travels, I often like to snap pictures of just about everything, including what I see off the sanctioned path. Wandering through the souq of Marrakech, this road wandered off probably to a...
Save Place
Toubkal, Morocco
Climbing Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in Africa not named Kilimanjaro, is a surprisingly convenient and doable adventure if you're based in Marrakech and looking to see the High Atlas (and burn some calories along the way!). You'll probably...
Save Place
Tinmel, Morocco
One of only two mosques in Morocco open to non-Muslims (the other being the Hassan II mosque in Casablanca), the Tin Mal Mosque is a worthwhile and historic visit despite its distance away from the main tourist trail. Deep in the High Atlas, Tin...
Save Place
Sidi Bouloukat Djemaa el fna 53 Sidi Bouloukate، Marrakech 40000, Morocco
Described by writer Tahir Shah as the “greatest show on Earth,” no visit to Marrakech would be complete without a visit to the famous night market on the Djemaa el Fna. Arrive before sunset and park yourself at one of the...

116 Derb Lhammam, Mouassine, Medina, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
Depending on how you feel on a given day, the souq can be one of the most exciting, crazed, interesting, or even frustrating experiences in any Moroccan city. Heading out early one morning to do some sightseeing, though, I found most of the...

It wouldn't be Morocco without tagine, right? And they're not just for the main course--we had appetizers and spices served up in these mini tagines, decorated with Amazigh script. Not only do these tagines have a certain charm imparted by their...

Asni, Morocco
Now this is a view I could get used to waking up to--just walk outside the bedroom door, take three steps, then turn left. Finally, stand in awe.

Asni, Morocco
Every Saturday there is a souk in Asni! They’ve got all kinds of things, from fruits, vegetables, grains, and spices to clothes, teacups, jewelry, and furniture. Although I didn’t buy anything this time, it was nice to get a feel for what would be...
Save Place
Asni, Morocco
I don't have a mobile phone that supports cool apps like the new one from AFAR, but, seeing everyone's photos of great rendez-vous and rituals, I had to post one of my own. Living in rural Morocco for the next few months, I was pleased when my...
