A lot of people imagine Morocco to be a vast barren desert. However, high in the Atlas Mountains after passing through Berber villages and beautiful scenery is the Ouzoud Falls, the second highest waterfall in Africa and one of the most visited and photographed natural sites in Morocco!
I decided to visit Morocco mainly because I had become desperate to travel somewhere (anywhere, really!) after all my plans to visit European destinations went out of the window due to Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns! So out of exasperation and sheer curiosity, I booked a tour to Morocco through Take a Break Travel. However, I do not regret doing so as the moment I arrived I was charmed by the immense cultural richness of the country. It felt like I was travelling in an uncontrolled mix of North Africa, Spain, Portugal, and France. I was thrilled!
Whenever I hear the word waterfall, I feel butterflies in my stomach, my eyes get a little bigger, my heart beats a little faster, and my smile gets a little wider… much like falling in love. I am always amazed by how beautiful a waterfall is. Really, I find it so magical and it mesmerizes me big time!
