شكرا MERCI MARRAKESH

DSC_0662 DSC_0689 DSC_0698 IMG_3176 TERRASSEDESEPICESHello there! You are wondering why it took me so long to post some updates. Well, I’ve been working a lot lately –it’s not the best excuse, I know-, I stored my Christmas tree away, I’ve been drinking a lot of champagne glasses and wishing everybody a very good new year but the most important reason I’ve been very busy with is a little big secret you will hear more about -hopefully very soon-. 😉 Anyway, besides all my good excuses I would love to talk about my sunny getaway, Marrakesh. Marrakesh is apparently a very trendy place to go to the last years, though I knew Marrakesh already for a long time since I visited it with my parents 7 years ago and the last 2 years I went 2 more times in different seasons. I must say wintertime in this beautiful city is amazing. For an only 3h35 flight from Brussels it is an amazing 4-5 days getaway where you can explore a complete different culture. My lovely boyfriend and I stayed in a Riad (Villa Makassar) in the Medina, which is the old city and perfect situated on walking distance of Djemaa el Fna! If you are planning a trip, please, pick out a hotel/riad with a good spa centre, you don’t want to know how amazing a hammam and crub Sunday is ;). Maybe one of my best tips is not to follow to much the Michelin guide. It’s better to explore the city by smelling, tasting, feeling and touching. Though Jardin Majorelle is really worth visiting . The peaceful garden is full of cactus, palm trees and other beautifull plants. It’s also full of inspiring Moroccan colors. I must say, a lot of ideas to bring home to redecorate your garden. Besides all the peacefulness you can see Marrakesh differently in the chaotic souks. It’s worth to take some time to walk around and buy some typical pottery, patisserie, baskets and carpets. For a new born feeling, to start of the new year, I advice you to spend some time at the swimming pool in the amazing 5-star hotels in and around the city. If you would ask me to summarize Marrakesh in 3 words, I would say “Magical”, ”Mystical” and “Mysterious”. Are you planning some sunny getaway? Let me know! XOXO
