Very beautiful Marrakech Mosaic Door

On the 18th May we flew out to the exotic North African country to start our seven-night Moroccan adventure with the independent travel experts Rickshaw Travel. Starting in Marrakech we tackled the terracotta mazes of the Medina, learned how to cook tagines in Lalle Fatima’s cooking school, drove through the hair-pin bends of the Atlas mountains, rode camels through the Sahara desert, explored ancient fortress towns and stayed some of the most delicately ornate Riads we’ve ever seen. It was truly an unforgettable and gorgeously unique travel experience and one of the most photogenic places we’d ever seen. Here is our journey through Morocco, in pictures…

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a special fondness for Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up visits to over 40 countries. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Nordic noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my favourite places; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
