the square that never sleeps
Wednesday 26 September 2018 - Marrakesh, Marrakesh-Tensift-El Haouz, Morocco

After the charming, cool atmosphere of Essaouira, Marrakech was noisy, busy, hot and the hotel rooms didn’t have AC or even a fan. I’ve never seen a bathroom where you had to walk through the shower to get to the toilet! It was a small comfort that the public areas were some of the most

Monday 24 September 2018 - Essaouira, Marrakesh-Tensift-El Haouz, Morocco

Essaouira, a fortified town on the Atlantic coast, was literally a breath of fresh air as the temperature was downright pleasant with a cool breeze sweeping through the labyrinthine medina, not to mention a fantastic sandy beach. After a week traversing the desert everybody enjoyed some free time

Saturday 22 September 2018 - Aït Ben Haddou, Souss-Massa-Draa, Morocco

Ait Benhaddou is a ksar or fortified village on the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech, in between the Atlas ranges. It’s dubbed the Hollywood of Morocco as quite a number of blockbuster movies like “Alexander”, “The Mummy”, “The Gladiator” and the Bond movie “The

Thursday 20 September 2018 - Merzouga, Meknes-Tafilalet, Morocco

In addition to the Rif mountains in the north, the Atlas ranges transverse the country, divided into the Middle Atlas, the High Atlas and the Anti-Atlas. It is one of the highest mountain range in Africa, separating the Sahara from the coastal region. The mountain slopes and valleys are inhabited

Tuesday 18 September 2018 - Fes, Fes-Boulemane, Morocco

Fez is situated at the crossroads of all the important routes in the country and served as the capital for centuries until 1927, evidenced by an imposing royal palace area. The hat of the same name, a short, red cylinder with a black tassel attached to the top, originated in Fez but became famous

what remains of a glorious past
Sunday 16 September 2018 - Moulay Idriss Zerhoun, Meknes-Tafilalet, Morocco

For some reason, I never imagined Morocco as a land of agriculture, but the truth is that about 30% of the area is farmland with very fertile, black soil. Yellow melons scattered like Easter eggs over field after field and hay stacks the size of barns whizzed past as we hurried towards the site of

blue mountains
Saturday 15 September 2018 - Chefchaouen, Tangier-Tetouan, Morocco

Chefchaouen lies high up in the Rif mountains and the reason for its nickname “the blue city” was apparent even from afar. Buildings are mostly painted white but doorframes, window sills and doors are more often than not the most vivid of blue. Streets often have signs in both Arabic and

Friday 14 September 2018 - Rabat, Rabat-Sale-Zemmour-Zaer, Morocco

The history of Morocco, starting from 788 AD, could be summed up as “a number of dynasties, each lasting just over a century” until the current Alaouite dynasty started its rule in 1638. Morocco of today, however, became independent in 1956 after having been a protectorate of France and Spain

Saturday 17 November 2018 - Marrakesh, Marrakesh-Tensift-El Haouz, Morocco

Efter två veckors resande i flipflops och skön värme ska jag försöka sammanfatta lite av vad jag uppmärksammat på resan samtidigt som jag skriver om sista dagen. Så det blir ett långt sista inlägg. Vi hann inte med mycket mer i morse än att stoppa i oss lite frukost och gå till

The sea was angry that day, my friends
Friday 16 November 2018 - Essaouira, Marrakesh-Tensift-El Haouz, Morocco

Vi kom till kusten och staden Essaouria igår vid sex på kvällen. Otroligt skönt att känna doften av hav igen efter att först ha bytt det bördiga norr mot det sandiga Marrakesh. En kort promenad från stationen låg vårat hotell mitt i stadens medina. Essaouria är liksom flera andra platser
