Two Weeks in Morocco

The Sahara Desert isn't the only life-changing experience Morocco has to offer. Two weeks is barely enough time to explore the beauty that this small but captivating country has to offer. Whether it is visiting the world-famous Jemma el Fin Medina in Marrakech, reliving the romantic drama that is Casablanca, or visiting the tanneries in Fes, you have only begun to scratch the surface. Traveling through Morocco is similar to traveling through multiple countries at once. In some areas you have beaches, others snow-covered mountains, and yet there is still desert for miles and miles.
