Chefchaouen, Morocco: Nestled at the foothills of the Rif Mountain range, Chefchaouen sits quietly. Its blue walls are bursting in color with powerful yet calming energy. As you snake through the city’s slender cobblestone walk streets, an aromatic musk fills the air. In your wandering, Berber men donning colorful floor-length djellabas make proud attempts to sell you their wares — camel hair rugs, jewelry, bags, wool clothing…it’s all here, and it’s beautiful.
