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.

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.

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'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 recognise 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 Morocco was home to respected Imans, artists and scholars is a proud, confident city. It felt cosmopolitan and yet quaint at the same time.
People of Morocco

The extroverted young Berber thought himself how to speak for languages. On top of that, he is extremely curious but he never asked himself if he would like to live elsewhere in the world.

Traditionally a tagine is prepared in a clay or ceramic pot which is closed with a cone-shaped cover. We have seen Moroccans use this pot for everything, even fried egg. If you don't have a tagine pot on hand, don't worry!

We have to admit: we were a little surprised to find a slice of what seemed like "cooked lemon" admits our tagine. A little skeptical, we tried it and were surprised by the texture and gentle, yet refreshing taste. Preserved lemons are super easy to prepare, but we promise you they will make any good Moroccan dish an extraordinary one!
