Three Months in Morocco

Updated: Jun 13

We were utterly overwhelmed by Morocco; it has the most spectacular scenery, vastly changing as you move through the country. The landscapes were mesmerising; one day, you would be surrounded by snow-capped mountains, next you were in the Sahara desert, and then the beautiful surf coastal towns.


The food makes it hard to leave; we fell in love with the tajines and local wines. The Moroccan people, even more, are the kindest, happiest and friendliest souls. Lifelong friendships were made and memories that will last a lifetime.


Best Stays in Morocco

We like to treat ourselves to a certain level of luxury as we travel, as it is all part of the experience. We thoroughly research all areas and find the best options for our budgets ($100 AUD per night) primarily through Airbnb and hotels.com. Here is a selection of our preferred stays in Morocco.


Best Restaurants and Bars in Morocco

We are foodies and wine/cocktail lovers, so the first thing we do when we arrive at a new destination is google best restaurants and bars. We enjoy long lazy lunches, with a fun atmosphere, great staff and of course food and wine. We have been fortunate to dine in some fabulous establishments, and here is a list of our favourites in Morocco.


Best Cafes in Morocco

Being from Melbourne, we are inclined to enjoy long lazy breakfasts with great coffee while we travel. Here is a list of our favourite cafes in Morocco.
