With Fall just around the corner, I figured it was about time I shared the story and some photographic evidence of my Summer escape.
As you may have gathered from my excessive Instagram spamming, I went to Morocco, a country I´d been wanting to visit for quite some time. And although our trip didn´t get off to the smoothest start — something about needing a passport — , I had a blast and cannot wait to go back.
So, what did we do? As we wanted to see as many different aspects of the country as possible, we decided to stay at five different places. We started out in the centre of Marrakech: the medina. We spent our days wandering, getting lost in the tiny streets and eyeing the huge array of baskets, carpets and other valuables that unfortunately could not fit in my suitcase.
Tip I: grab lunch at Café des Épices and get lost in the souk.
Afterwards, visit Le Jardin Secret and end your day at Nomad.
Tip II: take a cab and head over to Le Jardin Majorelle.
Head over there in the morning, so you can grab lunch in the garden.
Afterwards, walk down the street and visit the Yves Saint Laurent museum.
After spending a couple of days in the city centre, we headed over to the Beldi Country Club for some downtime. This place was incredible. The food was heavenly, they have the most lovely greenhouse and as if that wasn´t enough, we practically had the entire pool to ourselves. Would definitely recommend!
Then came Scarabeo Camp. I came across this camp in the middle of the Agafay desert on Instagram and knew that I had to go there. It´s the perfect way to unwind and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
We ended our trip on a relaxing note. We spent a couple of days at Berber Lodge, designed by Romain Michel-Ménière, and at Kasbah Bab Ourika. Overall, we had a wonderful couple of weeks and although I didn´t get to visit a lot of the sites I wanted to, I´ve accepted this as a sign that I should plan another visit soon. After all, Morocco is a wonderful country with beautiful architecture, charming little streets and plenty of covetable souvenirs.
