Majorelle Blue | My Moroccan Adventure

22 January 2018

Not too long ago, I had a lovely trip to Marrakech, Morocco with a friend and while our little adventure was only short, it was jam-packed and incredibly rewarding. My favourite type of holiday is one where you're really taken out of your comfort zone; one where you find yourself struggling to communicate with the locals and stay relatively hygienic.

We stayed at a wonderful Airbnb called the Riad Puchka located close to Jemaa el-Fna which is the main square in the medina quarter/old city. 

Be sure to visit Jemaa El-Fna and all the souks it has to offer, samples some local cuisine and enjoy the National Festival of Popular Arts if you happen to be around in the summer. 

Why not try ATV quad biking for a bit of a rush or Jardin Majorelle for a bit of nature.

If you want to immerse yourself in the Moroccan culture, then I'd advise you book a tour of the Atlas Mountains and Ourika Valley where you'll visit Berber villages, learn how to make Berber whisky (don't worry it's only tea), go camel trekking, learn about Argan oil, have lunch in a river stream, climb to a waterfall and so much more! 

If you're a fan of Moroccan cuisine (who isn't), then be prepared for a feast. Traditional Moroccan dishes include the obvious tagines, olives, couscous etc but also snails, cacti, orange juice, mint tea and pastries/bread.


  1. Ask your host to walk you to the square so you remember the route
  2. Swot up on basic French and Arabic
  3. Book tours in advance
  4. Don't feel pressured by street vendors; if you speak calmly, you won't get stressed out
  5. If someone tells you to walk by the side of the road, they're literally going to direct you to the tanneries
  6. Be weary of women who do henna on your skin without properly asking - they'll of course charge you
