A Visit to the Marrakech Medina

In November, I was able to travel to Marrakech. Since this was my first trip to Morocco, I decided to head straight for the city medina (old town) to explore the ancient area and enjoy a few great photo opportunities.

The Marrakech medina provided a vibrant display of local vendors and amazing food. While walking the streets one is able to smell hundreds of different spices and seasonings the city has to offer. Morocco has a truly unique and interesting culture and for some reason even the sky seemed to be brighter during my visit.

During my time in Marrakech I opted to stay just outside the city at the stunning Hotel du Golf, a Palmeraie hotel. The venue was absolutely gorgeous and provided an excellent home base for all my travel excursions.
