A week to go, it’s come around very quickly. It only seems like a couple of weeks ago I was trekking across the top of Durdle Door in blazing thirty degree heat. I can expect heat in Marrakech too, with a medley of culture to dizzy the senses. The colours, smells and sights all blend into one to create this hectic awesomeness.
We’ll be staying in a traditional little Riad, I’ll post up pics in my write-up. The breakfast balcony has a stunning view out to the Atlas Mountains, which hopefully won’t be blocked by telephone cables! We decided that five days was enough to soak up the atmosphere of the place, I can imagine too much longer would start to become a sensory overload.
There will be a couple of places of interest outside the hustle and bustle of central Marrakech too. One of which will be the tranquil setting of the Jardin Majorelle which was purchased by Yves Saint Lauren in 1980 and restored into the serene garden and museum that stands today.
I’m a massive foodie too, so cannot wait to get in and around the souks and try all the flavours they have to offer! I’ve heard that taking pictures can be quite a challenge in and around the souks and main square, market sellers asking for donations to have their wares photographed. Fair enough I guess, so I’ll have to try my best to document it.
So, sun cream and spices here we come.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
