Get lost! in Marrakesh

Covered market, Marrakech

To get lost in a foreign city is a fear that many of us have, but putting away the map can be just the thing for adventure. The souks of Marrakech are – we promise – a great place to get lost in.

So, what to expect?

Well, cast adrift in the maze of the medina, carts will trundle past you, laden with oranges and timber. You’ll see hawkers selling piles of eggs, fruit of all colours and fresh herbs. You’ll spot ancient weavers working at looms. The smell of delicious freshly baked ‘khoubz’ (bread) will waft over you.

You’ll pass brightly coloured apothecaries, where inside, hundreds of glass jars containing everything from pickled birds and crystals to ras el hanout and saffron will be for sale. You’ll be invited in for tea. You’ll have offers of guidance and you’ll certainly pass plenty of shady cafes to cool off in with a Casablanca beer or some mint tea.

See, doesn’t sound too bad does it? Chances are, after getting lost in the souks, you will return with a dozen travel tales, a handful of souvenirs and a camera full of photos.

This recent article on the Huffington Post website, inspired us to write this blog post, they agree that getting lost isn’t so bad!
