marrakech morocco | part 2

When I look back on all of our travel photos, the ones from Marrakech Morocco stand out the most. They simply amaze me because I’ve never experienced such colorful city in my life. There was eye-candy in every direction — from stray cats lounging on wooden carts, to the local women in their beautiful headscarves, and fruit stands and spice markets — I couldn’t get enough.

We found ourselves spending most of our time near the Koutoubia Mosque and Jemaa el-Fnaa, the vibrant square with food vendors, spices, souvenirs, snake charmers, and monkeys. We also walked around snapping photos of the unique architecture, and browsed the many pastry shops.

We bought local sweets, spices and Moroccan lamp shades to bring home with us.

Even though our trip was wonderful, it was eery to see the covered Argana restaurant that suffered a bomb blast in 2011.

Everyone welcomed us with open arms, we fell in love with the local children, and staying in a riad was an experience in itself.

We were a bit nervous to make the trip since we’re both Americans, but we didn’t have any issues and to this day, it’s our favorite city we’ve ever visited. Both Brandon and I would look to go back in the future; this time we’ll stay longer!
