Magical Marrakesh……….

I’m so in love with Marrakesh!

It was my second trip and it most definitely will not be my last.  Just everything about it is inspiring…

From the shopping…

 To the architecture…

To the food…

And especially the magical Peacock Pavilions

I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. Truly.

But most of all I was inspired by this most incredible woman and I feel privileged to have been able to know her a little better…

You can read more about her here.

Oh, and did I mention that Arianna and I made a whole bunch of new friends?

More on that to follow…

      I wasn’t travelling alone so not sure I can give that much advice. Be sensible. Dress with respect, don’t go anywhere alone, stick to the main streets and keep valuables out of sight. Same advice as for anywhere really. Have a lovely time – it’s a fab city and you will love it.

    Hi my friend,

    It looks like you had a fantastic time in Marrakesh! I have actually been there once, and I remember (with horror!) how someone placed a snake on my shoulder when visiting that old Medina ? market!

    Warm hugs to you – I am on your side of the planet – in Stockholm!

    Wow, that looks so great – I had no idea Marrakesh was so beautiful! The image (Tombeaux Saabiens) is staggering – the detail and workings are all in silver, right? Amazing. I also love the interior shot of Peacock Pavilions. Of course, I really must see more…

    I’m so pleased that you both had a enjoyed, I bet time flew by…x
