Think it’s going to be expensive? It doesn’t have to be. Whatever you’ve budgeted for your adventure is going to go a lot further in Morocco than Tokyo, or Riga than Paris, but it’s possible to live cheaply in any city. And often, traveling like a local makes a trip less expensive, since you’ll be avoiding all those pricey tourist-traps and gift shops.
Travelling excites your senses and opens your eyes to the beauty of the world. You learn how to stop for a while to marvel at the foreign sights and sounds. Among the things that have probably stopped you in your tracks is the beauty of different architectural structures you see for the first time.

Essaouira is one of those small towns in Morocco you hear people say how much they loved, yet you don’t get to know much about it. That is until you get there. And once there, you see why people love it!
Step into the villages of the Atlas Mountains and you’ll feel like you’re stepping back in time as you are immersed in the Morocco of the past, where traditional Berber homes are dotted across the landscape and mules are one of the main modes of transport.
