Marrakech On Assignment - Lyn Hughes

In November 2010, Wanderlust's Lyn Hughes took 19 readers to Marrakech on the first of the Wanderlust On Assignment trips.

Designed for people who want to take their photography and writing to the next level, the idea of an On Assignment trip is to research, write and photograph an article for publication in Wanderlust magazine.

Along with Lyn on the trip was professional photographer Paul Harris and local resident and photographer Suzanne Porter. Thanks must go to them and also to Andy at Splash Rafting who took some of the group canyoning.

The resulting Ultimate Guide to Marrakech article, along with a selection of the photos generated, appeared in the March 2011 issue of Wanderlust magazine.
