Strolling around Marrakech, making new memories, and having the biggest cultural shock we’ve ever had. From the language, to the food, to the customs, to walking down the street, everything felt very different. All eyes were on us, especially when one of us has purple-ish pink hair.
We were in Marrakech during July, which has extremely hot weather. We would walk down the street with the sun beating down on us with 116°F - it was insane! But, we would stop by the cart #54 where our friends would make the BEST orange juice anyone could dream of drinking for only a few cents. With juice in hand, we were always ready to head into the market place and haggle our way to trinkets. Ahhh, it was awesome!
One thing we would recommend is staying at the lovely Riad & Spa Bahia Salam. It was one of our favorite places to stay while visiting. Not only was it extremely close to everything, but the staff there was on point. The most welcoming people you’d could come across.
Morocco, we got off to a bumpy start, but we got caught in your spell and fell in love by your charm. Sure it can be a bit challenging, but it’s really worth the adventure. We cannot wait to go back!
