Call it turquoise. Call it aquamarine. Call it cerulean, navy, royal, cobalt or peacock. We call it blue and it’s our gorgeous Pics of the Week theme. Let these cool blue dreams take you to Morocco, Indonesia, and the Arctic. Who said the blues were sad
Where the Sahara meets the sea
Beaches and Berbers, medinas and mosques, souks and sand dunes... Morocco has variety and an exotic feel that has fascinated travellers since long before the modern traveller arrived. Affordable and only a short ferry from Spain, Morocco's mix of traditional and modern strikes the perfect balance between the intensely exotic and comfortingly familiar. Cities like Fez, Marrakech, and Casablanca evoke images of medinas, spice markets, and couscous, while the geographic extremes – from the Atlas Mountains to beach resorts to camels in the desert – make it eminently photogenic. The mad circus of Marrakech's Djemaa el Fna square, packed with incense, salesmen, and snake charmers, is so bizarre and entertaining you'll be looking for the hidden camera.
