Essaouira, part 2.  The lingering sounds of sea breeze rustles your hair and billowing skirt, Atlantic coast sends sea wave crashing onto the rocking shore, flying sea gulls echoes above our heads set wonderfully against the rich cyan blue sky, no promise of eye-locking targets with poop bombs for sure.  In the courtyard of an old Riad fills with colour patterned tiles marries perfectly with rose petals filled mosaic water fountain, balconies and roofs with draping foliage and flowers boast a rustic Moroccan feel.  That is my dream outdoor living space and here goes Pinterest.

A couple nights of well earned sleep at the Sofitel Hotel Mogador, the fluffiest and most comfortable bed I ever slept in without interruptions known as ‘My Bed’.  A balcony view overlooking breathtaking sites lined with exotic palm trees, carefully arranged sun beds and hammocks, private villas, golf course and spa.  Crispy blue sky reflecting in pools and ponds mirroring the sky and Earth, forever fools your eyes like mirage in Sahara Desert.  The burning red sunset.  Breathtaking.  Surreal.

Many thanks to Sofitel Hotel Mogador for accommodating us, and thanks to Faical of Morocco Tourism Board for the amazing, unique and unforgettable experience in Essaouira, and great companions Kate, Lucy, Lexxi, Rachel and Russ.  Kit Lee of Style Slicker was a guest of Morocco Tourism Board.

  2. Beautiful photos – you make me want to visit Morocco again and opt for a fancier hotel rather than a bog standard Riad (though the Riad wasn’t too bad really). The shot of the bird at the end is awesome!
