Feeling anything but blue in Morocco’s ‘blue city’

IMG_1467

With the Riff Mountains providing an illustrious backdrop, Chefchaouen instantly had me swooning over its 50 shades of blue. Small-town charm keeps the city humbly inviting with a population of about 35,000 people. Scenic hiking trails boasting panoramic views, friendly Spanish-speaking locals and a relaxing vibe left me feeling anything but blue.

The "small" falls on our hike.
