A dusty love affair

We are so lucky to live in a time where time travel is possible… and I say time because I have been away for a week but it feels more like three months. I’ve returned with 100 Polaroids, hundreds of iPhone snaps, copious amounts of jewellery, pottery and silverware from the souks and a deepened dusty love for Morocco. I’ve got some serious processing to do — both photographic and emotional — so for now here’s a little peek at some of the sights I saw last week…

    Thank you for sharing your images so generously, they are beautiful and teach me so much ! I am intrigued about your trip – I have heard that western tourists are constantly harassed and that spoils the experience of a remarkable country. Any tips for a woman wishing to travel there alone?

    What beautiful pictures Susannah, looks like you had a fantastic time and you came out of the souks alive! These pictures bring back many memories as I visited Marrakech a couple of years ago, it was beautiful. I was very proud of myself managing to pack a tagine, silver lantern and various pieces of pottery in my suitcase! I don’t know about you, I found some aspects of the culture v.difficult to deal with, really pulled on my heart strings.

    Hello Susannah,

    I love your photos! Tell me, the pictures that you posted on Instagram are they taken from your cell photo? Are you using Instagram or another application to process your photos? Thanks!

    oh wow Susannah, looks like you had a great great time, but then again how not to when you’re in Marrakesh?! Happy happy for you

    Your life looks so beautiful.

    I so wanted to go on this trip, but couldn’t for health and financial reasons. Another time perhaps. I’d love to see more photos. What a treat.

    Gorgeous photos Susannah, as usual, but I am completely baffled by the 6th one down. What on earth is something with a list of what looks like tram/bus stops and routes from Melbourne (Australia) doing in Morocco? As they say: Random!

  17. susannah

    Hi Anne! Yep, all photos on instagram were taken with my phone and edited using instagram filters :)

    This looks a magical trip – hope you’ll be sharing more…

    Great images. I really like the ship one with the blue fence, it almost looks like it was in UK :) They make me look so much forward to new adventures and travel.

    At the risk of embarassing myself I’d forgotten that you’d gone away and I missed you. Your photographs are beautiful.

    Heyyyyy the third from the bottom photo shows a tram roll from a Melbourne tram! I lived in Collingwood :)

    A little Essaouira is good for the soul.

  31. amanda

    Ladies, the Melbourne tram/bus rolls are a decoration Maryam and Chris have in the pavilions at Peacock Pavilions. Being the only Aussie, I was instantly drawn to them too. :)

    lovely, especially the photo of the lemony-slice-thingy :)
