Essaouira Photo Diary

Essaouira

Essaouira is a wee gem situated on the Moroccan coastline. Come explore the port and the medina with me!

When I last left you, I had just finished my incredibly cool Desert Glamping experience in the Sahara. However, I also briefly mentioned that I had managed to get a severe food poisoning… Unfortunately, this had quite the impact on my experiences and itinerary in Morocco – I can hardly even remember the days I spent in Fez and Agadir. Upon my arrival in Essaouira, the last stop on my Moroccan itinerary, I finally got some medications, and for a few hours I once again felt like a functioning human being. Naturally, I rose to the occasion, grabbed my precious camera, and spent my day getting lost in the medina! I can’t even explain the happiness and excitement I felt when I finally managed to leave my hotel room, and head out to explore the magical streets of the souk…

I fell head over heels in love with the magnificent colours of Morocco! I mean, how can you not?! I nearly bought every single one of those spice cups. Hello Christmas gifts!

EssaouiraAfter spending far too much money at the souk, Andrea and I decided to head down to the port. It turns out that Essaouira – other than being famous for its medina, the beautiful beaches, the great surf and for being hippie capitol No 1 in Northern Africa, is also world famous for its amazing fish market.

We stayed for a while, slowly walking our way through the market and the beautiful surroundings. It was a complete chaos, filled with colours, blood, freshly caught fish and loud bargaining between friends and foes.

Sadly, my visit to Essaouira was over far too quickly. But I’ll definitely be back, and next time I’ll try out the surf!

    Usj da… matforgiftning er aldri gøy. Jeg elsker å gå på markeder, og det marokkanske er jo en drøm av lukter og farger. Essaoira har jeg ennå ikke besøkt, men da har jeg jo en veldig god grunn til å reise tilbake til Marocco!

    For en trivelig og fargerik by! Flotte bilder :) Men svært synd med den matforgiftningen altså.

    Så kjedelig å bli matforgiftet og dårlig. Bra du fikk noen fine timer i denne flotte byen til slutt, i hvertfall :)

    Fine bilder :)
