Morocco is a place for dreamers. It’s a country that captures the imagination with it’s rich culture, vivid colors, fascinating cities, and gorgeous landscapes. I had the opportunity to spend a week in Morocco while studying abroad in Seville, Spain. The close proximity between the two has made Morocco an appealing day trip from Spain. But I encourage you to linger in Morocco. It’s not a country that can be soaked up in a day or two. It takes time and patience to fully absorb the beauty and mystery of Morocco. I discovered that I have a fascination with Islamic architecture and culture while in Morocco and ended up wishing I had spent more than a week there. So give Morocco the time it deserves. To further convince you to book your plane ticket, I decided to give photojournalist a whirl and share some of the photos I took.
