Saturday Spot: Morocco’s Magnificent Markets…

November 22nd, 2011 · 4 Comments

A friend of mine went to Morocco recently and allowed me to live vicariously… she gave me a whole lot of photographs to share and I have to say I so have the travel bug badly!!! A week or two in Morocco would be fabulous…

While my ideas of a North African country are hot and dusty…

Quite forgetting the blue skies…

With a little bit of sea thrown in for cool relief…

And at the far end of a little wander…

And let’s face it there is nothing better than street food, wherever you are…

And finding a place to relax in the heat of the day…

I have always wanted to visit Morocco… for now I am virtually traveling through a pile of library books, just the covers make me want to pack… and a good friends epic tales.

Hope you guys all have a fabulous week… I will just get on with day dreaming!!!

    Before we all went digital, I used to have a summer job up in London at a colour photo library. Sort of place magazines and other publishers visited to buy photos. Looking at your friends photos brought back a long, long forgotten memory. I spent a whole day filing away photographs of Morroco. It looks timeless and the colours are amazing. Thank you for including the blue sky!

    Morocco – I too had some preconceived notions about this place – heat, dust, rugged lanes – until I recently devoured a photo essay in the Lonely Planet magazine!

    These photos are so awesome! Makes me want to go too. But only after I have had enough of South Africa. Yes darling – your country is what I dream of – of visiting again, after that last and latest trip! 🙂
