Ahhh yes, Morocco Marakesh… where I stayed for three days. Where do I begin, this place is unreal. There is so much culture in Morocco that sometimes I would walk through it all and feel as if though I was in a old school movie. Lets talk about the good things first. Morocco is beautiful in its own ways. The people are extremely welcoming and friendly which you don’t get everywhere you go in the world… so this was a breath of fresh air. Also, the food was amazing.. everything had this special moroccan spice mixed into it and whatever it was I wasn’t complaining. I mean even their american style pizza had moroccan taste to it lol… although at times it was a bit over whelming. Can I just touch basis again and mention how full of culture this country is. Its a middle eastern (muslim) country and even though I as a middle eastern though I would fit in, I actually stood out like a soar thumb lol.
The other side to Morocco. This is my own opinion and we did stay in the medina (the touristy section) so my opinion is based off that. Okay, for those who don’t know me… I have OCD… not literally but you know what I mean. I am a clean freak and I enjoy clean places. For example Barcelona, this place is sooooo fucking clean and put together I love it. However, Morocco was soooooo dirty. There were a million cats (walking inside the restaurant while you are eating) and beggars (for money) and people just stopping to gargle up snot on the street floors.. oh and the million and one bugs on the foods in the street stands. Honestly, during our trip at times it became too much. My husband and I would go walking in the souk and within 2 hours we would both get headaches and feel dizzy. That is the only negative. But all in all it was one of my most incredible experiences to be able to visit such a cultured country. If I had to suggest it to a friend I definitely would hands down.
Fashion in Morocco. Okay guys… I tried to be fashionable but we were walking in sand and dirt and in jam packed streets with donkeys and horses everywhere so I really didn’t have much of an option. Also Morocco is a religious Muslim country and it is disrespectful to wear shorts and to expose your shoulders… therefore my fashion was a T-shirt, black jeans and sneakers (thank god for my sneakers). Oh and since its the desert.. it would be burning hot during the day and freezing fucking cold at night.
My favorite part of the whole trip: Camel riding. The weather was amazing. The scene was breathtaking. The hosts were humble. and it really was full of Moroccan culture pre car days!!!
[side note: tomorrow I am traveling to Mallorca and Ibiza and will be sharing that as well so follow me on instagram where it is the most current: Fashionbloggertogo]
