Postcards from Chefchaouen

Tuesday, 14 July 2015

It's been about a month since I visited Chefchaouen and my goal of 'one blog post per week' failed miserably over the last month. My temporary blogging hiatus has been mainly due to my jam packed travel calendar over June and July so you won't hear any complaints from me. In a way it's nice to write a travel post one month later as I get to go through all my photos of Morocco and relive parts of my holiday all over again. 

Chefchaouen was my absolute favourite city we visited in Morocco and it's easy to see why. The soft, powder blue and white walls give the whole city a calm, celestial feeling, It's undoubedtly the most photogenic city I have ever visited.

The best way to see the city is by getting lost in it. Guides will approach you and give you an excellent price for a day tour but we decided to explore ourselves so we could take our time and take plenty of photos (read, obsessively). In a desperate attempt to convince us that having a guide was the best option, the guides told us the city was unsafe to walk around and that people often get lost - this is untrue. Our group, three girls, felt incredibly safe taking little alleyways and narrow off-the-beaten-path-looking streets. The locals are warm and friendly and the medina is small and easily navigable. It's impossible not to instantly fall in love with this dreamy city, next time I hope to spend a few nights here and have time to try the excellent cuisine famous to this part of Morocco.

  3. If you are an art lover and colors fascinate you the most, do visit the blue city of Morocco known as Chefchaouen. So, whenever you Travel to Morocco, do make plan of visiting the city covered in blue color.
