Podcast Listener Angel Nair Shares Her Experience Visiting Morocco - Ep. 13

Podcast Listener Angel Nair Shares Her Experience Visiting Morocco - Ep. 13

Angel Nair and her husband travelled to Morocco in May of 2022, their first time in the country, and the Destination Morocco Podcast was a huge help in preparing them for the journey. She joins Azdean today to talk about her trip and what she learned.

Angel shares her perceptions of Morocco, drawn from movies, film locations and cultural expectations, and how those perceptions changed after just two weeks in the country. Although yes, they did explore classic movie locations in Casablanca and elsewhere, they packed so much more into their journey, from Marrakech all the way up to Tangier.

Listen to hear her describe watching sunsets next to the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, looking out over the Atlantic Ocean, or from the hills above enchanting Moulay Idriss Zerhoun in northern Morocco, or amongst the magical colours of Chefchaouen.

Angel shares how the Destination Morocco episode on Scams helped her immensely, whether at the airport, saving them 200 Dirham as a result, or by avoiding having to pay the charmers in Marrakech to take a snake off her back!

And through it all, there's the food! Special and delicious, Angel talks about the many dishes they discovered, from tagines to pastillas, fresh seafood, tangia and even camel burgers.

From pleasant surprises to dramatic scenery and wonderful, welcoming people, journey along with Angel as she shares her story with her fellow travellers.

You're about to learn:

  • How the hospitality of the people made all the difference.
  • About the empowerment of women in Moroccan society and commerce.
  • What were some of Angel's planning resources.
  • How going with an organized tour helped not just with preparation but also logistics once they were there: baggage, transport, accommodation and more. Although, they were able to add extra independent days onto the beginning and end.
  • What a Moroccan homestay (staying with a local family in their home) is like.
  • What was the most striking difference between each city she visited.

Podcast listeners! Destination Morocco is offering a special 8 day guided tour with Azdean, from October 17 to 24, at over $700 off the total price.
