Happiness is only real when shared, so I decided to put together a list of my favorite reads about Morocco. There are some travel bloggers that I truly love to read, I refresh their social media channels and impatiently wait for their newsletters. I promise everyone will find something interesting in this article!

Explore Morocco like a boss

This article would never be complete without mentioning MarocMama. Amanda, an American expat in Marrakech, knows the secret places in the city, and shares off-the-beaten path tips for tourists and foreigners in the Red City. If you’re planning a trip there, you should defintely read her posts about the faux guides and the other one, about touristy scams in Marrakech.

To prepare yourself for the first trip to Morocco, make sure to read Katie’s, aka The Hostel Girl, post about 20 things you should know before going to this country.

Another great blog from Mel, the vanlifer blogging at Westfalia Digital Nomads; the culture shock she and her husband Armando had while the first time in Morocco.

Ah, and read that First Timer’s Guide by MarocMama too!

Are you a female traveling solo? Read on!

I get tens hundreds of emails from solo female travelers asking me if Morocco is safe for them. I guess the best preparation you could ever have is to read the experiences of other solo females in Morocco. Different opinion, different adventures, different points of view.

Houda is a Moroccan globetrotter, and the blogger behind The Moroccan Nomad. She wrote this awesome post featuring 10 tips for a succesful hitchhiking trip. Good read in case you’re asking yourself how to tackle the hitchhiking issue ;)

Keep on and continue with these 10 useful tips for women in Morocco by Amanda, that’s a read for every first timer female! Going further, you should also take a look at this article written by Katie, the complete guide to Morocco dress code.

If you are a budget traveler, you may find this interesting: Couchsurfing in Africa by Nina. She described her experiences as a solo female exploring Africa. Morocco and many other countries featured!

Where to go, what to see – a bunch of travel inspirations!

Still hesitating where you want to go? I am sure one of these posts describing the untapped places in Morocco will inspire you:

Mazagan, Where Morocco meets Portugal – by Omar from In a City Near You

Desert, Fire and the Curious Berber – by Omo and Eulanda from Hey! Dip Your Toes in

Exploring Imsouane. Surf, Seafood and Sunshine – by Katie from The Hostel Girl

Craving for more? Here we go!

Eulanda and Omo, a lovely couple of bloggers behind Hey! Dip Your Toes In, wrote a great post “When travel challenges our identity” that I totally love. Not a travel-related one, but definitely a good read for everyone!

Joao from Nomad Revelations is a great photographer, and you can see that in this post. He captured beautiful Moroccan people in his photos and shared with the world.

Last (but not least) article that is worth reading, the real story of Casablanca. Many people come to Casablanca in search of beautiful white houses and omnipresent romance. When they come, they curse the place. Amanda from MarocMama explained it very well. A must read to avoid bitter disappointments and know what really happened!

And a heartwarming read from Mel – the story of the stray dog from Taghazout that they have adotoped.
