In June I spent ten days traveling through Morocco visiting Marrakech, Fez, Casablanca, and maybe smaller cities in between. I traveled some of it alone, met up with friends, and ended up making some wonderful friends I shared some fun times with along the way. Unlike anywhere I've ever been before, it was by far one of the most challenging (and often frustrating) trips I've taken but also by far the most delightful + rewarding. So many great stories and experiences from my first adventure in Africa.
I ended up with over a thousand photos but these from my second day in Marrakech are some of my favorites. Although I stayed at a different hotel, I really wanted to check out the riad El Fenn. I had seen a few photos posted by a friend and it did not disappoint. I could have spent all day (or likely days) snapping pics of all the beautiful details and secret spots tucked into the space hidden behind the walls of the medina.
There are three beautiful swimming pools, gorgeous courtyards, and a restaurant at the very top with perfect views of the city. It's so peaceful and a place you literally never want to leave.
Morocco has a special style all its own and there was no better place it was on display than at El Fenn. Please go visit and see it all for yourself!
