I have travelled around the world, have been everywhere. but somehow Marrakesh and Morocco were not on my list. so last month I finally went for a 4 day trip with my daughter Ishi and it hit me, it was love at first sight.
I try to describe what it is what makes Morocco so special.
it must be the air - warm, dry and seductive. the smell of Africa a continent
I was curious about but didn't dare to travel by myself.
the smell of orange trees. ahhh.. how to start .. just telling you.I fell in love with.
I want to buy a RIAD ... I dream about being the owner of one of these secret old mansions with beautiful gardens and open rooftops.
Have you seen the Instagram girls posing in turquoise mosaic tiles patios?
ON MY WAY TO MARRAKESH TODAY.. WILL UPDATE YOU TOMORROW
I arrived last night coming from Barcelona, the plane was full of young #bohotrippers from everywhere, couples in love maybe on a honeymoon, groups of Instagram girls from south America to Japan.Its incredible how popular this destination has become.
When I arrived at Marrakesh airport which is really beautiful, first I had to fill out the landing card and queue at the passport control, but it was fast and friendly..next got a sim card and internet for less than 10 euros. My suitcase was already there the last security check and out I was..I decided not to change money at the exchange counter because they ask ridiculous lots of commission.. there is an atm machine just outside .. my hotel has sent me a taxi driver for pick up..this will cost you ca 20 euros to get into the medina.. 15 euros daytime. its only 20 minutes drive ..make sure you book a pick up with your Riad otherwise u never gonna find it..the riads are hidden in the small street only the locals now to find them.. I knocked at a big wooden door and then I enter my home ..
I stayed at
Riad Lalla Manaoush with Sophie and frank, a super sympathetic french couple who fulfilled their dream of opening a riad just 6 months ago.
It is tastefully furnished with velvet sofas, Morrocan furniture and newest boho design.. my room the annarose is big and has an amazing bathroom and super comfy bed. I was welcomed with the traditional mint tea and then went for deep sleep in my boho suit.
