Marrakech

by - 14:12





So finally I made it to Morocco and the one thing I was really looking forward to was visiting the medina. I've seen many photos from friends who traveled to Marrakech (it has the largest traditional market, souk, in Morocco) of the beautiful colourful alleys, lively markets and typical babouche slippers (I managed to get a great deal on!). We wandered around for hours, watched the craftsmen creating their products right in front of us, I stopped at every single lamp vendor ... sight... (I'm slightly obsessed with them) and couldn't wipe away a smile on my face. I was so happy to be there and this feeling is the main reason I love traveling, the sensation of discovering new cultures, smells, sights and sounds. To have a guide is definitely something I would recommend as you get a real inside into the city and its history (ask for a guide at your hotel) and another advice would be to come to Morocco with an empty suitcase. There're so many beautiful things you'll want to buy and if you bargain well, it will be very easy to fill that suitcase with souvenirs from Morocco.

Back at the Mandarin Oriental 


My stay in Marrakech was wonderful but short and I can't wait to come back to spend a few more days discovering this beautiful country. Although ...... little did I know, that few days after coming back to Paris, I'll be boarding a plane to Marrakech again ...  this time for a very different experience I can't wait to tell you more about. Soon :) xx
