Morocco is hands down one of my favourite countries and in the 21st century it’s an incredibly exciting place to be, as the old order of reverence and tradition seems to meld beautifully with the young generation of Moroccans who were raised on social media and who now are pushing forward their lifestyle ideals. 

If the frenetic madness of the Medina in Marrakech becomes too much, there are rooftop cafes in which to draw your breath (Cafe Nomad in the Spice Market – try their courgette fritters!) as you look down into the melee of other tourists who haven’t yet discovered your sanctuary and if you want to really get away from it then a walk in the gardens followed by afternoon tea at La Mamounia is a highly recommended treat.

I took short trips to Essaouira, a pretty coastal town, Merzouga and the Sahara desert and Chefchaouen the blue city and even though I felt I’d seen a good part of Morocco there’s always more to see and do.  Next on my list is Tangier, Fez and the Rose Festival so guess I’ll be back!
