The Kingdom of Morocco, as it’s officially known, is a North African country with a long and complex history. The country is quite unusual in the region, in that it has remained independent throughout most of history. It also has a unique mix of cultural influences – Arab, African, and European, as well as the indigenous Berber influences. Morocco is also the only country in North Africa to have coastlines touching both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.   more ...

In general, Moroccans are quite open-minded and accepting of people of other cultures. Nevertheless, safety for women continues to be a concern among expats.   more ...

Over a dozen horsemen come bearing down on me at a gallop, rifles raised above their heads. Just as I start to panic, they rein in hard and bring their horses to a skidding halt no more than two metres from me, simultaneously firing a volley of shots into the air. Welcome to Morocco…
