Wanderlust: Morocco

For the 2 months I lived in Spain, I had one free weekend to spend traveling to a nearby place. The shortlist included: Paris, France, Marbella, Spain, and Tangier, Morocco (it's literally a ferry ride from the southernmost point of Spain). I ultimately chose Paris for my weekend getaway but I often think about Morocco. I've always had a love for Muslim cultures and architecture. After gawking at photos and researching information for this post, I think I'm actually glad I didn't take that weekend trip to Morocco, for I'd much rather set aside at least a week to travel to this colorful, culture-filled, beautiful and geographically-diverse country. As you can see from the above photos, there are some amazing beaches, however the Atlas Mountains also provide some great hiking experiences. Surely, the shopping would be an irresistible temptation and I also know that I would love to interact with their locals and pick their brains about life as a Muslim and life in Morocco.

Have you been?

Morocco is so high on my wanderlust list! I'm dying to go - and lately it seems I've been hearing so many great stories from people who have recently travelled there :)

I went to Spain this past January and we had a 2 day trip planned to Tangier but it ended up not working out because we didn't have enough time in Spain. It's still on my list of places to see, though and hopefully i get a chance to go.
