Even though I fell completely in love with Fes while visiting Morocco back in 2009, I know I need to return to Essaouira some day. After several days in the rain far away from the sea, we found ourselves in the coastal town of Essaouira, also known as “Wind City of Africa”. Suddenly we could feel the sun shine on our faces and smell the sea (and the fishies!). Besides the laid-back and kind of alternative atmosphere, I can’t remember much more than what the few photos I have remind me; the amazing light and the breathtaking sunset. Oh! Fun fact to all the other Game of Thrones fanatics out there: some of the scenes from season 3 were filmed here!
