{the sartorialist - in morocco}

If you've been reading our blog for a little while now, you'll probably know that in April of this year we were in Morocco and Egypt for a 2 week holiday.  

So when I saw The Sartorialist post some pics of his recent trip to Morocco, I felt a little giddy - given the fact that he and Garance visited Essaouria - a very small seaside town about 6 hours south of Casablanca, a little town we too visited in April.

He captured the town much better than I ever could.  If you're planning an overseas trip any time soon but not sure where to go, Morocco is a definite must.  I used to live there when I was younger, so going back there was quite an awesome experience - to see it through grown up eyes so to speak.

Marrakech is a beautiful place (we left about 3 days before the bomb hit the centre of the town - lucky....) and generally so safe for tourists.  Casablanca (where i lived when I was a young teenager) is such an awesome cosmopolitan city, so that should also be on your list of places to see. 

Egypt on the other hand....well, seeing the Sphinx and pyramids was simply amazing but Cairo itself is a crazy place!  If you've got the stamina then give it a go - but if you'd like a laid back hippy approach to a 2 week holiday, then Morocco is your place.
