After spending our first night in Morroco at By Hotel, Laurie and I then moved onto Riad Alkaderi located in the middle of the medina. A young man directed us to the Riad, and we had to knock and ring the bell a few times before we gained access to the Riad. When we entered a young man directed us to a seating area where we were served tea and given snacks. I asked during this time if I should pay and was told no that we pay at the end of our trip.
Laurie and I recently got back from Marrakech, Morroco, and whilst it was a lovely trip I just wish there were a few things people would have made us aware of when travelling to the Medina. Please don’t let any of these things scare you away, even if we were scammed a few times I would still go back in a heartbeat.
- Beggar children in the Medina
I’m extremely excited to travel this year, I feel that I always come back refreshed with my mind in better focus. Below are the 7 destinations I plan to explore in 2017, if this all works out it would be a great year!
1) Marrakech, Morocco
A metropolitan city in the Kingdom of Morocco, this will be my first taste of Africa. I had initially wanted to go to Egypt but somehow got drawn to Marrakech, I don’t know how this happened but it may have something to do with the stability of Morocco. This is the holiday I treated Laurie to for her birthday. We’re going to get Hamman, ride camels, see the gardens, and of course, explore the medina.
