Every month, we curate the best blog posts, Instagrams and videos from our Lonely Planet Pathfinders.

This month’s video feature is from videographer Nick Adams, who leads us along narrow stone corridors, through grand architectural archways and bustling marketplaces to give us a unique perspective of Morocco.

‘Morocco is a country full of diverse sights, sounds and smells. In my latest video, I wanted viewers to experience a snapshot of Moroccan culture, taking you from grand mosques to the bustling labyrinths of the souks.’

Morocco: gateway to Africa - Mark Adams

Why we like it: Using a mixture of first-person footage to give a sense of perspective and close up shots to capture the smaller details, Mark has painted a vivid picture of Morocco here and highlighted its dizzying diversity. We really enjoy the creative transitions which transport us from the heart of one experience to another - we certainly feel as though Morocco has bumped its way up our travel list!
