I recently had the amazing opportunity to travel to Morocco with ISA. We spent five days traveling through the local markets markets, small side streets, and the expansive Sahara Desert. From carpet shopping in Fes and watching local musicians perform to sleeping in tents in the desert, I feel like I really experienced the heart of Morocco.
Each sunrise in the Sahara was truly incredible. As the sun rose over the sand dunes in the distance, the whole desert was covered in various hues of pinks, blues, yellows, and oranges.
Moroccan carpets are used for more than just simple floor covering. Hand made by local Berber women, each carpet is a magnificent work of art that tells a unique story of each family.
