In Morocco until this weekend, living a Travelife, our group of Travelife Magazine readers and friends had great fun visiting the souks of Fes, Rabat and Marrakech.
We also went to some of the best stores and boutiques in Morocco.
What a feast for the senses these places all were, with so many beautiful designs and colours.

NO SOUK IS ALIKE.
ABOUT THE SOUKS OF FES,
RABAT AND MARRAKECH.
Each souk of Morocco is slightly different, so we enjoyed visiting each one, at least in the cities we visited.
The souk of Fes, for instance, is still very much unchanged from centuries past and it’s full of local colour. It’s also a maze of alleyways that you can very easily get lost in.
The souk of Marrakech, on the other hand, is very touristic and completely crowded unless you go on off-hours.
But there’s lots of variety for those willing to explore the alleyways.
The souk of Rabat is more tame.
One main road of the souk, in particular, is very wide and uncrowded so it’s nice to shop here without harassment — or without having to take care every few seconds in case you’re toppled over by a whizzing motorbike or a donkey laden with goods.
“Best trip ever.” Join the next Travelife to Morocco
And so I closed my eyes and handed over my credit card to the girl at the counter. A few seconds later, I half-regretted it, but the deed was done and the dress was in a shopping bag in my hand.
But later on, back in the hotel, I tried it on again and I loved it.
And each time I wear it, I will remember this truly wonderful trip to Morocco with Travelife Magazine readers and friends, when everyone with me was also happily living a never-endingly eventful Travelife.
