Last month I travelled with a bunch of fellow London based Aussie mates to Morocco to embark on a 4 day trek through the Atlas Mountains. We landed in Marrakech on our first day and got an opportunity to explore the expansive medina of the old town.
Be prepared to lose yourself for a few hours in the Medina, as trying to remember the path you took is utterly impossible. The labyrinth of shops lead you to many different items on offer, and the sights and smells of the spices and food is amazing. If you’re looking to stay somewhere, definitely scope out the riads that litter the medina and are harder to find than a taxi late at night in Soho.
