- How Moroccan Architecture Is Built to Beat the Heat
When I was planning a trip to Fez a few weeks ago, I made sure to book a riad (a traditional Moroccan house) with air conditioning. Like many parts of Morocco in July, the temperature was forecast to be almost 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 Celsius). I was sweating as I walked through the streets but was pleasantly […] The post How Moroccan Architecture Is Built to Beat the Heat appeared first on Journey Beyond Travel.

- JBT?s Ultimate Guide to the Quranic Schools of Morocco
The long, storied history of learning and scholarship in Morocco is often surprising to first time visitors, and even to some longtime inhabitants.

One of Morocco?s most famed rulers was Sultan Moulay Ismail. He was 27 when he came to power and ruled from 1645-1727.

- Essaouira?s Excellent Cooking Class at l?Atelier Madada
Alyson gave me a horrified look when I asked her how long the dada (a term often used to refer to female chefs at Moroccan hotels) had been teaching Moroccan cooking classes. ?Don?t call her that! She?s a chef! I?ll explain later,? she whispered, glancing worriedly at Mona to make sure my question hadn?t been overheard. Alyson, […] The post Essaouira’s Excellent Cooking Class at l’Atelier Madada appeared first on Journey Beyond Travel.

- Celebrating July 4th: Why the US Wouldn?t Be the Same Without Morocco
If you?re in Morocco on July 4th, you won?t see fireworks or likely hear the Star Spangled Banner playing. There won?t be any baseball games on TV and you would be lucky to find Deviled Eggs or Grandma?s Potato Salad anywhere. However, what you should know is that the US as we know it likely […] The post Celebrating July 4th: Why the US Wouldn?t Be the Same Without Morocco appeared first on Journey Beyond Travel.

- The Splendid Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rabat
With a past rich in history and culture, Morocco is a country that many visit to wander the old labyrinthine medinas and crumbling casbahs? and rightly so. In many ways, Morocco is a country of living history, however, it?s also a country quickly moving into the future. With new, state-of-the-art ports along the Mediterranean Coast, […] The post The Splendid Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rabat appeared first on Journey Beyond Travel.

- Tetouan?s Best-Kept Secret: A Visit to the Royal Artisan School with Green Olive Arts
From the crumbling splendor of the 13th-century Alhambra in Granada, Spain, to the 14th-century Madrasa Bou Inania in Fez, Morocco, spectacular examples of Moorish plaster-carving, tilework, and intricately carved painted wood have blown the minds of millions of visitors over the centuries.

- 24 Hours in Tetouan
The old Medina of Tetouan is a place where people live and work ? you won?t find many souvenir shops here. But if you want to experience life in a Moroccan medina with few tourists where you can explore without being bombarded by ?come have a look!? then Tetouan is well worth a visit, either […] The post 24 Hours in Tetouan appeared first on Journey Beyond Travel.

With its white walls and bright, broad main streets, its relaxed and friendly inhabitants, and its vibrant arts and music scene, Essaouira is my favorite city in Morocco.

- Eat, Pray, Love in Morocco ? An Evening at Khadija?s Kuzina
In Essaouira, there is a cooking class unlike any other in Morocco. Khadija?s Kuzina, located just outside the medina, is an experience that is so much more than just learning something about cooking Moroccan cuisine. It?s a visit into the hearts of the proprietors, Lahoussaine (a.k.a. ?Hussein?) El Faded and Khadija El Jadiri, and an […] The post Eat, Pray, Love in Morocco ?

- A Guided Tour of The Blue City ? Chefchaouen, Morocco
The obvious question when you first get to Chefchaouen is: ?Why is it blue?? Many reasons are offered and most are myths. Some of the myths include: the color repels mosquitos; it reminded the original (non-existent) ex-sailor residents of their seafairing past; it?s a reminder to remember heaven. The real reason the entire city is […] The post A Guided Tour of The Blue City ? Chefchaouen, Morocco appeared first on Journey Beyond Travel.

- Farm-to-Table Dining at Port XIV in Asilah
At first glance, one might mistake the misty, rolling hills outside of Asilah for the rugged highlands of Scotland. On a rainy, blustery winter?s day ? where the only thing standing in your way is perhaps a massive muddy puddle or an enormous bull that looks a bit like a shaggy Shetland cattle ? it?s […] The post Farm-to-Table Dining at Port XIV in Asilah appeared first on Journey Beyond Travel.

- A Walk through the Rabat Medina
It?s a typical Thursday morning on Rue des Consuls, the main road of the Rabat medina. The souvenir market section of this medieval, walled area is only a tiny sliver of the old medina. It?s also an easy and stress-free introduction to shopping and sight-seeing in Morocco. Vendors slowly crack open the doors of their boutiques around […] The post A Walk through the Rabat Medina appeared first on Journey Beyond Travel.

- Moroccan Sweets: Crumbles of Culture
Moroccan sweets and cookies are a bit like the secret underdog of the patisserie world. They look quite unassuming and even a bit dull at first glance. However, all bets are off when you take a bite of their heavenly deliciousness. Many Moroccan sweets are drizzled with honey and stuffed with almond paste. Others use […] The post Moroccan Sweets: Crumbles of Culture appeared first on Journey Beyond Travel.

It doesn?t matter that they have never lived in the US.
