Marrakech, Morocco

Well, ok ... I'll admit it. Reluctantly. When my wife and one of our friends first started to talk about a road trip around Morocco, I was not too enthusiastic. "Morocco? Why the heck should I go to Morocco? Whatís in it for me?" I asked myself.

In the end, I was overruled. Fortunately. A month and a half later, I was sitting on a plane from Rome to Marrakech. We - a total of eight people - rented a car in Marrakech and took off on a five-day road trip: Marrakech, Ait-Ben-haddou, Skoura, Gorges du Todra and back again. The last two days were spent in Marrakech.

Well, it was truly an eye-opening tour. How could I have been so stupid and ignorant? A flight of only two-and-a-half hours from Rome catapulted me into a totally different world. Different and extremely fascinating.

What could I possibly say about the Marrakech medina that hasnít already been said or written? Well, nothing, I guess, except that I never really expected to find anything like this and I didn't even know that a place of this sort even existed. Fascinating. Captivating. Exotic. Marrakech, donít change. Wait for me ... I'll be back soon.

The photos in this gallery are mainly from the medina of Marrakech but some shots are also from the road trip - people, portraits, situations, colors, texture, sensations, food and a single cat.

Photographically, I chose to travel light. I brought my Fuji X-E2 and the kit lens 18-55 mm and a 35 mm lens for food and portraiture. The two lenses work very well together and limited the overall weight.
