Maybe there is just a little bit of everyone’s fantasy destination in Morocco. It stands in the collective imagination of the West. It is the mysterious bridge between the warmth of the Mediterranean and the mysterious legends of the East. At the same time, it has all the appeal of what we seek in an exotic destination. It is edged with just enough mystery and a hint of the unknowable mystique of the Arab world. It is a place that you yearn to know, but realise that you never will completely, but to taste and sample it may well change your life forever.
To make your way to Morocco is to embark on true adventure. It is to show a real zest for all that life can offer. It is convenient as it is close by, and yet centuries apart. It is familiar through tales and legends. It is medieval and modern all in the same breath. There is a sense here than life is being lived, embraced and that life is colourful, sensual and sometimes edgy.
It is life above all that is filled with character and real charm. Embracing it we know will make us better, more rounded and even more understanding. It will elevate us with spirit. From the beaches of Essaouira, and Tangier to the heights of Jebel Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains, Morocco does exotic. From Sahara night camel trains under the stars, to medieval Berber villages in the mountains. The sensuous cities of Marrakech, Fes and Meknes, all life it here. It is rich and vibrant, and it is touchable.
