Marrakesh - the dream of 1001 nights

Marrakesh mesmerized me from the second we left the cab. Surrounded by "guides" eager to lead us to our Riad. Never would we have found our Riad ourselves, even though the taxi left us only about 300 m from the entrance. The unimposing door was hiding the beautifully decorated and colorful Riad. We were confronted with the incredible detail of Moroccan style. We stood there with our mouths open. Deeply impressed and taken aback by so many impressions, so much beauty.
Heri es Souani in Meknes, Morocco

Meknes - authentic vibes between beauty and roughness

After visiting the blue medina of Chefchaouen, we were off for a more authentic experience. Meknès is not as often visited as its glamorous neighbor Fez. We really can't understand why. To us, Meknès was a fascinating city to visit. It's not as busy or big as its famous neighbor Meknes, but that only adds to its charm.
Dani in Chefchaouen, Morocco

Chefchaouen - Morocco's blue city

Fez has been lovely. We had a great time roaming the medina's maze. But Chefauchouen has been calling us. Many travelers have enthused by the charm of the blue city. Of course, we were eager to discover the blue town for ourselves.

Fez, Morocco - an insider guide to the medina's maze

Fez's old city, the medina consists of more than 9400 alleys. Some of them more extensive, some of them so narrow you almost didn't recognize it them as a path. Moroccans are proud of their traditions and heritage. As you roam through the streets, you'll be able to watch artisans apply century old traditions. Fez, one of the four royal cities of Morroco was home to respected Imans, artists and scholars is a proud, confident city. It felt cosmopolitan and yet quaint at the same time.
Zanzibar's beaches: Nungwi beach

Zanzibar's beaches - pearl of the Indian ocean

We loved mainland Tanzania, and the experiences made surpassed our imagination. We could not have been more happy about our time spent there. It wasn’t after rushing to get our connecting flight from Dar to Zanzibar that we set on the airplane and realized how exhausted we were. While in final descent we were surprised by the size of Zanzibar. It seemed huge! So naturally, Zanzibar offers plenty of things to do. We did not have an itinerary planned (as always: no plan is the best plan) and ended up visiting:
Stone Town, Zanzibar narrow alleys

Stone Town - Wander the alleys to past times

We quickly lost ourselves wandering the narrow streets of Zanzibar’s cultural heart: Stone Town. It almost feels like a journey in time as we pass decayed buildings. Stone Town is sheer incredible, and we promise you, that you'll be mesmerized at every corner!
