Colors Of Marrakech Morocco – Photo Essay

Prior to visiting Morocco, I envisioned a desert terrain with various shades of brown and red, with perhaps a pop of green here and there in nature.  Once we arrived, the terrain was exactly as I envisioned, but there was a nice surprise waiting for us.  As we spent our time exploring Marrakech, we were surrounded by pops of beautiful color around the city.  So much so, that we couldn’t stop taking photos of the beauty.  I guess in most places many of these things would just blend in.  But when layered against the back drop of the terracotta colored Medina Walls, it was something that stopped us in our tracks every time.

    • Thanks Micki! I wanted to buy so many things, but we resisted. We know we are going to be “mobile” as of the summer and wouldn’t have any place to keep any purchases, so we left with photos.

    • Thanks Brian. I don’t think we’ve met yet. Welcome to our blog.

      Yes, the walls were amazing! Alan took that photo of the spices, so he will be very pleased with your comment. I am a quick point and shoot at everything person, when it comes to a camera. Alan takes care in getting the special photos.

    • Oh you bet Cat. Thanks for the offer to take us to the airport as well. I found a great deal with the Seville airport and need to write about it, one of these days. The P1 short term parking has an on line booking system. If you book on line it was only 35 Euros for 8 days, but you have to pay at the cashier window and not at the machines. Providing you show your printed reservation they give you the deal, otherwise it is the per hour parking fee. Crazy. Cute airport.

  1. I just love the photos, takes me back to my trip there (It was by far one of my favorites). I don’t think I had ever seen such vivid colors and the spices…wow! ahhh thanks again for bringing me along with you. ;o)

    • So glad you enjoyed the Christine! Isn’t it great how a photo can instantly take you back to a place you visited so long ago. I guess that is why we took about 900 photos, or so on our trip to Morocco. It is tough filtering through them all to pick out the one that best represents what we are writing about. You can come along with us whenever you like!

  2. We’re frustratingly close to Morocco. But it’s cheaper for us to fly back to the UK and then over there than get a direct flight from here. The crazy world of the Canary Islands. Love this colourful post.

    • Funny you mention that Matthew. I checked out flights over to see your islands and potentially meet up with you and your family, but flights were off the charts expensive. I was thinking it would be dirt cheap and we could hop over for the day or something. It was only 35 Euro each, round trip from Seville, Spain to Marrakech. Crazy! Another time.

Come on and tell us what you think!
