  • Admiring the beauty of Morocco's National Parks... 😍🌴
.
One thing I learned again on my trip through this country is that being able to visit places like this is a true privilege
.
I have seen many many poor people in Morocco
.
Actually the poorest of the poorest
.
I even had to give a 10 year old kid some food that I had left in my car, while he wanted to sell me some souvenirs to get money for his family 😕
.
This would never ever happen where I come from. It's actually illegal ☝
.
But there, people have to do it
.
This was one of many situations in Morocco that taught me about something about GRATITUDE again
.
Being grateful is so important, especially for people from privileged countries
.
We all tend to forget what kind of great lifes we actually have, because things like a child labour or example, doesn't even effect us in any way
.
Most of us can actually be more than grateful for the lifes we live and the countries we are able to travel because of the money we make❗
.
Every time I travel a new country I realize this more and more
.
And I am highly thankful for those lessons each and every time, because you really only learn them when you visit poor foreign places
.
The best thing about these lessons is that you learn to be able to put things into perspective... 🙏
.
So thanks to the beauty of Morocco
.
Thanks to the awesome people I met
.
And thanks for all the lessons I have learned again... 👌

  • Enjoying a bit of sunlight after coming back home to Hamburg 😊
.
I just came back from Morocco today and I can only highly recommend to visit this country ❗
.
From all of the places I have visited so far, Morocco is definitely on top of my list for many reasons
.
It is no suprise that it is getting more and more popular every year
.
Nevertheless I have to say that it feels good to be back home 💙
.
I really didn't want to leave Morocco though... 😟
.
I would have loved to travel it even more, but I know I will definitely come back
.
The good thing is, there is always a next destination to travel to... 😉
.
TELL ME: Anyone having any recommendations where to travel next???

  • Riding into the desert's sunset... 🐫😀
.
Seeing the Sahara was a dream of mine for a long long time
.
When I finally realized it, I could not believe it
.
And I still can't... 🙈
.
Riding a camel for a couple hours, sleeping in a proper berber tent, having dinner and a jam session with the locals as well as watching the sunrise and the sunset was more than I ever expected 😍
.
So what does that show you ???
.
Simply that dreams come true❗
.
If you really believe in them, they will be reality one day
.
Just keep moving towards them all the time and you'll eventually arrive where you always wanted to be 💪

  • So in love view with that top view of the Dades Gorge 😍
.
And this is only the tip of iceberg... 👌
.
The drive to this place was absolutely phenomenal
.
I literally had to stop 6 or 7 times within 30 minutes to takes pictures, because the views just absolutely amazed me 👍
.
On the way there I also picked up a moroccan local as well as a german traveller, that I spent the last three days with
.
The east of the atlas mountains is absolutely worth a trip and I can only highly recommend to come here 😊
.
I also already learned something again from the locals
.
ALL of them are incredibly friendly and they always try to help you with everything you ask them, even if they can barley speak one word of English
.
And if they can't explain properly, they take you to a friend or they try to communicate with hands and feet until you understand them 😄
.
Such a lovely bunch of people ❤
.
The kindess thry have and love they spread is Definetely something to adopt!

  • How wonderful are the Ouzoud waterfalls??? 😍
.
I really start to fall in love with Morocco slowly❗
.
At first I had to a couple task to master but now I like this country more and more
.
Everywhere you go, you see extraordinary landscapes with stunning sights that simply take your breath away 👌
.
The ouzoud waterfalls are one of them
.
They rise up to about 110m and they are just a short trip away from the Marrakesh
.
Definitely worth a trip!

  • Lost in the narrow alleys of Marrakesh 😍
.
I had a couple problems during my first two days in Morocco
.
When I arrived at the airport, the police took my drone away, because apparently you are not allowed to takes drones to this country
.
I also wasn't able to get a working navigation for the car that I have rented, so I had to sort it out in the city centre of Marrakesh, which wasn't that easy to be honest
.
Additionally I was not really prepared for the cold nights 😅
.
So it was quite a rough start
.
Nevertheless I have to say that I really like this Morocco so far❗
.
The food is great, during the day it's always sunny, the architecture is amazing and the people are incredibly friendly 😃
.
Today the REAL tour starts
.
I will leave Marrakesh and visit the highest waterfalls of Morocco in Ouzoud 😁
.
Sooo excited!
.
TELL ME: Do you have any other recommendations on what to see and do in Morocco???
.
Drop them in the comments! 😃
