Morocco


My sister and I went on a wonderful trip to Morocco, it was great to escape the cold for a few days. It was such a vibrant and busy country. 

Things I loved in Morocco:

Jardin Majorelle - A gorgeous and colourful botanical garden owned by Yves Saint-Laurent. 

The Souks - The souks are gigantic outdoor marketplaces. The souks sell an eclectic mix of affordable things from rugs to leather bags. 

Essaouira - Essaouira is town that is a lot calmer than Marrakech. There is a beautiful beach and it was so sunny. 

The Beldi Country Club - An amazing retreat in Marrakech. It had an amazing rose farm, beautiful pools and a delicious restaurant. It was beautifully designed. 

Fellah Hotel - The Fellah Hotel is an incredible place. It was great having cocktails by the pool. The rooms were amazing, our room had gigantic bed, bathtub, closet and balcony. When we first arrived at the hotel we were served cocktails and then we entered our room, which had an array of delicious snacks. 

Atlas Mountains - We had an adventurous day when we went to the Atlas Mountains. On our way there, we visited the Women’s Argan Oil Cooperative. I bought a lot of argan oil, since it’s my beauty regime essential. We also climbed the Atlas Mountains, which was fun and daunting.
