The streets of Chefchaouen, Morocco, are famous for their different shades of blue. The city was once used as a fortress for exiles from Spain and over centuries many Jewish people moved to the small city bringing with them the ancient belief blue dye would remind people of God’s power. For the most vivid experience, stroll down Al Hassan Onsar, Rue Outiwi and the small stairs leading up and down Rue Bin Souaki.

 

For two to three weeks each spring, there is a magical tunnel created by trees that line Cherry Blossom Avenue in Bonn, Germany.
