Bonjour mes amies! I’ve had the best few days in Morocco, and today was absolutely extraordinary. Morocco is truly one of those life changing places, and I’m so excited to show you inside the country with this photo diary.
Yesterday, we drove to Marrakesh from Casablanca. The drive there was about three hours, and the drive was so beautiful. From rural villages to yellow-flowered fields and the towering mountains, I was in awe of all the beauty around me.
Our first stop was the Majorelle Garden which was absolutely gorgeous. If you have followed my blog for awhile, you know that I am absolutely obsessed with flowers, so this was my dream come true. The garden was designed by French artist, Jacques Majorelle, and later owned by fashion designers, Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé.
Next, we drove a little farther to the medina. With mopeds zooming through the streets and venders haggling for our attention, it was a sensory overload, but the best one at that.
The medina, built in the 11th century, feels like a labyrinth of twists and turns. Our guide showed us behind the scenes of many of the shops, and we saw a true look at the life of a medina craftsman.
After the medina, we were starving, so we decided to eat at a restaurant overlooking the city. One of my favorite things about this country is how wonderful the food has been. Every meal is fresh, natural, and tasty, and it has been very easy to eat vegetarian.
I hope you all enjoyed this photo diary of our day in Marrakech. Morocco has truly been an eye-opening experience. While staying in Casablanca, we had a look at extreme poverty and upsetting slums, and I will be forever humbled by that experience. Seeing the destitution makes you truly grateful for everything that you have, and I want to try to be more aware of the blessings in my life. I really hope that you all will visit Morocco because it is such a culturally-rich and breathtaking country.
See you next time❤️
