Many travel destinations have more visitors during a high season, when the weather is best, during holidays and festivals, or perhaps just because of habitual migration. These are often important reasons; travellers accept the crowds and inflated prices as trade-offs.
Occasionally, even sensible travellers disregard their guidebook’s first chapter (“When To Go”) and visit during the “wrong” season – and they win! The weather is not unpleasant, the prices are heavily discounted, the streets are free, the locals are more open, and new perspectives are unveiled. And sometimes, while out picking wild asparagus, the sky bursts with rainbows, and you really wonder: why is this the low season?

Here are some photos from our trip to Morocco. It is a vibrant country, with friendly people who speak French and Spanish. We found modern women who seem happy and not repressed. We went during the Ramadan (July), when they are fasting until sunset therefore all restaurants were closed, but we bought food in the market and always had some snacks in our packs. The weather in summer is hot but bearable, except for some days when it escalates, and nearby desert areas. The food is delicious. Dates and figs are everywhere! Couscous with vegetables is the best. Definitely a country that we would go back.
