Don’t like snakes but I did felt sorry for them.

At night the square fills with food stalls. And they serve a tasteful variety of local dishes.

On your way from Marrakech to the Sahara you’ll bump into the ksar (fortified city) AΓ―t Benhaddou. It’s a Unesco World Heritage Site and the location where many films and series (Games of Thrones!) have been shot.

  1. Wow, what gorgeous photos! I’d love to sneak around a kasbah, so pretty! Did you have some yummy Moroccan mint tea to go along with the view? πŸ™‚

  2. Stunning photos, Morocco is one of those places I am never sure if I really want to go but seeing photos reminds I need to go, if only to enjoy the richness of the colours and culture.

    1. Tx for the visit Michele. I had the same feeling: not sure if it would like Morocco. But: it’s a very diverse country, and the nature is stunning. I’m sure you will love it.

  3. I love how it looks as if the desert could just completely overtake the roads, if it were left alone for a few years.

    1. Go! πŸ™‚ It’s such an easy country to visit, people are very welcoming and the nature and cities are amazing.

  4. Beautiful pictures here, a really awesome collection! I love the camel shot heading into the Sahara – a true unknown quantity in the world for sure. I love how you have included so much color into these images.

  5. Your photos show a place that is not only beautiful, but is filled with life! We are really looking forward to going to Morocco one day!

  6. Must go! I want to see it for sure – and to sleep in the dessert would be an amazing experience! Thanks for sharing the photos -they are lovely! And so cool you got to see a location from Game of Thrones (love that series!).

  7. You really captured some gorgeous photos. Love “Scenes on the road” series. I am terrified pf snakes, so wouldn’t get that close to those street performers :). And how about those guys selling water?!

    1. Those water guys were so funny. They kept offering to sell us some water but I was too afraid to drink it, they absolutely didn’t understand why. It all ended up us buying them a glass of fresh orange juice.

  8. I left my heart in Morocco, and have been back to visit it many times! It’s simply my favourite country with it’s colourful souks, dramatic landscapes and cities that hide a thousand exotic tales. I love the people too, on the whole some of the most genuine I’ve come across, and yes I even love haggling with locals (takes a few times before you realise it’s not scary!). So ‘GO’ would definitely be my advice πŸ™‚

    1. I like haggling too! πŸ™‚ At first it’s strange but once you get the hang of it, it’s like putting on a show. And I agree so much with you: Morocco is a fascinating country, still very much authentic.
