Passports ready? Don't forget your bag.
Let's load up the caravan.
We'll need comfortable, yet stylish clothes for warm temperatures: nothing too exposed; modesty is a plus in this Islamic nation.
Many Moroccans believe that jinns play a role in everyday life. Morocco moves to its own multi-cultural rhythm, with strong influences from the Moors, Africa, Spain, Europe and the Middle East.
Seeing stars, in the cobalt blue colour predominant throughout Morocco.
Lanterns in various Islamic shapes and sizes are found in virtually every corner of Morocco.
You can never have too many lanterns.
It's been a long journey. Shall we accept an invitation for tea?
What a selection of tea glasses! Maybe we can take some home?
Oh, my head is spinning with all her suggestions of what to see, where to eat, what to do! I'm thinking we need a month, just to hit the highlights!
Isn't it charming to see a child dressed in a traditional costume?
Hmmm, after our busy day, perhaps it's time to take a break. Let's meet back here later to discuss what to see next. Meanwhile, leave a note (in the comments section) for a chance to win a prize from Morocco PLUS a special prize from France worth 200 euros!
