In November I escaped to Marrakech for two days with friends, just before Morocco was closed and the COVID nightmare was unleashed again.
We toured the Souk, we visited the Majorelle Garden and the Ives Saint Laurent Museum, we ate delicious, we stayed in a beautiful place where they made us feel at home, we chased a rug and chatted for hours. What more could you want?
Traveling is good for me, it inspires, relaxes, entertains me, and helps me to disconnect to reconnect when I return home. In a word, it is a great source of energy for my body and mind.
I know that it is not always possible, that is why I have decided to write to you today, with the intention that we travel, even if it is mentally and for a moment. I love taking photos and I have prepared this little collage for you, which I hope you like.
The most fun without a doubt was walking the streets of the Zoco , a labyrinth full of people, shops, food stalls, spices, and what I enjoyed the most was meeting the artisans working with wood, leather, baskets, chairs, lamps...
But there are also many many fun boutiques in and outside the Médina: Sook Paris, Chabi Chic, Marrakine, Lalla Marrakech, Stella H, Marie Bastide Studio and the El Fenn boutique.
The most inspiring thing was visiting Le Jardin Majorelle and the Ives Saint Laurent Museum, a blue oasis in the red city, you can't miss it!
Jemaa el-Fnaa square is a very touristy place, too much for my taste.
To eat, I recommend Le Jardín , which has delicious food and delicious juices, but above all it's worth it because it's very pretty. Upstairs there is a caftan shop that is very good.
At sunset you have to go to La Terrase des Epices to have a drink on its terrace and see the square at sunset.
For a quiet dinner I recommend El Fenn roof top , the food is super delicious and the decoration, atmosphere and views are spectacular. If what you feel like is partying, Jaj Madal is fun, with music and very cool.
A weekend I won't forget
from which I return inspired, happy and with a phrase that they kept repeating to me and that I will make mine… “Hurrying kills”.
