Morocco – My greatest salty moments in 2015


Seven months in Morocco. Seven wonderful months in a beautiful country with amazing people! Morocco has really become my ‘home’ and I am so glad, I packed my suitcase to spend half of the year in the sunshine country! The unforgettable memories I have collected were countless… here is just a tiny collection:

1. Flying on a wave, picture caught by Magic Surf Morocco
