moroccan anniversary

Exactly a year ago today, I arrived in Morocco with my partner, our cat, and our stuff. It’s been and continues to be an adventure – experiencing a new culture, a new language, a new climate. I keep learning everyday, and sometimes it’s a bit tiring; but at the end of the day, I’m getting exactly what I came for.

We’re hoping to stay here for at least another year, and by that time, I hope I’ll feel a bit more comfortable with the language, and a bit more settled. For now, here are some of my favourite photos from my year in Morocco.

As this photo perhaps (correctly) suggests, I live on a farm. For a person like me, who far prefers the countryside to city life, it’s perfect.

I’ve met a lot of great and funny creatures here:

Sheobub, our dog.

A lot of cattle egrets!

A hedgehog full of arrogance and personality.

Some camels! Not on the farm though, this was in the desert.

And more egrets…

I’ve also seen the seasons, in all their splendour and difference compared to the Finnish ones:

The dry, hot summers.

And the mild, wet winters.

Have a great week, everyone!

  1. I’m sure if was difficult to narrow it down to just a few images, but you’ve shown me a wonderful display of a countryside I’d not thought of as Moroccan. Best wishes for another great year!
