Photo Journal: Essence of Essaouira
Morocco is an interesting country because there's a lot of stigma surrounding it. People assume it's a dangerous country or because of its Islamic beliefs that it's not a good place to be. They couldn't be more wrong. It's a vibrant country that has a mixture of many cultures and influences and is very safe. On my second trip back, I wanted to take a day trip to somewhere outside of Marrakech, and after looking at photos, Essaouira seemed to be the place to go. Unfortunately I was expecting a bit more of a sunny, beach paradise and we arrived into overcast skies. However, it was still quite lovely to spend a few hours here, walking around and experiencing this unique city of European, Middle Eastern and African influence and I wanted to share some photographs with you. A home to a Game of Thrones backdrop and Jimi Hendrix's favorite place to go in Morocco, it's definitely worth the trek.
