Moroccan Winter

My New Year's Eve was spent in Morocco with my mum. We lost out on the fireworks, on the other hand we got to spend one week in the sunshine so I'm definitely not complaining as I got to warm my frozen limbs.

Early on New Year's Eve we took the flight from the sunny but chilly Copenhagen airport.

We watched the London fireworks on TV and on the other day we went out to have a look around.

Living in Agadir meant that we had just a short walk away to the promenade.

The promenade goes along the 9 km long beach and it is a great place to go for a run/walk.

What I always enjoy to explore once I'm abroad is food. My top choice was couscous. Yum!

Walking around in markets can be quite an experience with the air filled with the smell of spices.

Agadir does perhaps not look as traditional as Marrakech, but this restaurant was breathtaking!

Another pleasure of mine was to drink mint tea out of beautifully decorated glasses.

On Friday we went on a small excursion to Taghazout, a very popular destination for surfers.

Taghazout is a small fishing village along a rocky coast and with a gorgeous beach.

Everywhere are cacti, so one has to be careful while going down to the beach.

What a rare sight! I actually got a tan, even though it might be hard to notice. ;)

1 week is far too little to see everything, but I was quite content with having seen camels at the beach.

Each evening I got the enjoy the beautiful wonder on the horizon as the sun went down. I shall miss the warmth and the beach, but it also feels good to be home again. This year will bring many new things to my life. I've only got one term left until I graduate and until then I will have to figure out what I want to do with my life. It will definitely not be an easy choice, but I'll listen to my heart and only time will tell what the future holds.
