Morning in Marrakesh- An awesome local experience!

5/ 5

I woke up this morning and went to Marrakesh. How cool is that?! I loved wandering through the Medina, visiting a women’s nonprofit, and learning about and seeing the artisanry and gorgeous colors of many different style Berber rugs. To top it all off, after a year of “lockdown”, interacting with the local guide and business owner was truly a joyous experience. Thank you so much, Local Purse and Intrepid Travel!
