Morocco Vacations

Morocco is located in North Africa with coastlines facing the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. The landscape includes the dramatic desert landscape of the Sahara Desert in the south and the Atlas Mountains that stretch along the northern coast. The people of Morocco have an ancestry that extends back to the original Berber tribes who have existed for over 3000 years in North Africa. The majority of Moroccans practice the Islamic religion but being Berbers, they consider themselves non Arabic. The culture of Morocco has intrigued tourists for centuries and many writers have traveled to Morocco so that they can be inspired in their writings. A few notable writers who fell in love with this amazing country are William S. Burroughs, Paul Bowles, Brion Gysin, Jack Kerouac and Tennessee Williams.
