Join travel journalist Derek Workman in this light-hearted story as he travels around Morocco, taking you on a 'whirlwind' adventure through the country's diverse culture and hidden landscapes. More
The lure of Morocco is such that if you haven’t been there you want to go; if you have been, you want to go back.
Morocco is a country of extremes; from the arid Sahara Desert to the snowy peaks of the High Atlas Mountains; from the beautiful chaos of Marrakesh to the woven woollen tents of nomadic tribes. But within these extremes you will experience a breath-taking span of culture, gastronomy, history, architecture, art and artefacts, glorious gardens and sumptuous riads. And, Morocco is far more than just a wallow in the exotic; it has a vibrancy of life and colour that will take you completely by surprise.
No single book can unravel all the mysteries of Morocco, and A Whirlwind Around Morocco has no intention of even trying. The stories in this e-book have been compiled to give you a pleasurable read, and entice you to experience your own adventure.
So step into the world of grumpy camels, nights under a twinkling desert sky, the unique weirdness of trying out a wedding throne, feasting on sardines grilled in a back alley in Essaouira or in the frenetic open-air restaurants of the Jmaa el Fna in Marrakesh, meet the last sewer of hand-made footballs in Morocco, and sample the minor delights of Arabian mayhem of a village souk.
