Chefchaouen (pronounced Shafshawan) – The Blue Pearl.
Located in northwest Morocco. This beautiful city sits beneath the raw peaks of the Rif mountains and has an absolutely stunning medina!
Almost everything in the old town is painted in various shades of blue, from the walls, to doors & floors.
It was surreal wandering through it’s narrow corridors for a few days, it felt like the game pacman, but a real life limited edition where everything was covered in blue.
Berber Stories, Lamb Tagines, Moroccan mint tea, hearing calls to prayer simultaneously from different mosques – my time there was an incredible experience, it felt like I had stepped into a different world.
SHUKRAN to everyone that I met on this trip ; the locals, the taxi drivers, the Berber Carpet makers, fellow travellers. Special thanks to Mohammad Sherief, who was effectively my local connect.
