Whether you want to focus on something specific - be it landscapes, cities, customs, or traditions - or whether you want to experience as many aspects as possible that Morocco has to offer, that is the first decision that needs to be made. Since Morocco is such a huge country, it is better to decide and then focus on one or two areas where you can experience this. You should bring enough time to take in and enjoy everything you want to see and experience, rather than trying to fit it all in. Also, the Moroccan population is a mix of Berbers, Arabs, Africans and Andalusians, which is also something to consider when planning your itinerary, depending on what cultural and traditional aspects (e.g. gastronomy) you want to experience on your trip.

The North of Morocco - the Blue City

The evening sun bathes the town in a blaze of blue color. The whole town seems to glow - like a mystical underwater world. But these are only brief moments in the turbulent alleys, which are winding, narrow, sometimes ascending, sometimes descending, leading the visitor from square to square and store to store. Here you can find handicrafts, leatherwork, handmade carpets or the warm djellaba with hood, famous in this area. Not all that glitters is gold, but those who are not immediately persuaded to buy the next best thing can still purchase small treasures here.

Today we will visit Rabat city, the capital of Morocco. Rabat is one of Morocco's four royal cities, along with Fez, Meknès and Marrakech. The name goes back to an Islamic border fortress (ribat) built by Zanata Berbers in the 10th century at the mouth of the Bou Regreg River. In the 12th century, the Almohads had the ribat expanded into a fortified city (kasbah), which remained an important trading city until the 19th century with and in competition with Salé. We will visit the Medina, the Kasbah of Oudaia and the Mausoleum of Mohammed V. Break time for lunch. Overnight in Rabat city in a charming Riad or Hotel.

 Stage 1 - the local open pit mine

In Mefiss we make a first stop. Here Hassan shows us the quarries where even today Eyliner coal is laboriously mined. He told me (Monika) that he himself worked here as a child after his father died at an early age. He gives me such a stone. Shiny and special.

 Stage 2 - La Musée du fossiles et minérales

On we go to the fossils. Incredible what can be found here in this plain. A small museum contains fascinating treasures. Outside we see a whole "turtle family". Some of the fossils are still cut and polished by hand. You can buy beautiful plates, polished coral fossil or snails.

Departure from Marrakech in the morning at about 9:00. We pass interesting sights, like goats on trees. Photo stops can be made at any time. Arrived in Essaouira (after about 2 hours) you will first move into your accommodation (probably a riad in the old medina). The afternoon and evening are at your leisure.

If you let your eyes wander over the sea on the old Portuguese fortress, you will discover them: The Purple Islands. These islets, off the coast of the small harbor town of Essaouira, or formerly Mogador, got their name because the Phoenicians used to extract the precious dye purple from sea snails here, which was reserved for kings and nobles.

Colors still play a role in this small artist town and its many, sometimes hidden art museums, which is also famous for its music scene and the annual Gnawa music festival.

If you still have room in your luggage, you should buy one of the beautiful wooden works made of thuja and lemon tree. And don't miss the morning local fish market. Would you like to try a freshly caught oyster? Or have a fish you've never seen before prepared on the spot? The variety is indescribable. Of course, a walk on the miles of wide sandy beach is a must. We take you there, to this picturesque little town: Africa North Journeys.
