It’s been a full four weeks since our wonderful holiday in Morocco, and I am still dreaming about strolling through the souks and sleeping in the Sahara. For the inside scoop and tips on this once-in-a-lifetime holiday, head over to my previous post.
As promised, here are the pictures of our time in Morocco. I hope you enjoy!

I fell in love with all the arches that form such a big part of the Moroccan architecture! I took this photo in Meknes.
