YOUR FAVOURITE DESTINATION?
TELL US ABOUT THE STAY? WHERE AND HOW WAS IT?
Marrakech is a great example where you can define as a beautiful and chaotic atmosphere.
I prefer to stay in Medina that I can feel authentic and touristic atmosphere. Admire the architecture of the Riads in the city where there are accommodation options for every budget.
Speaking of riads, it is the general name given to traditional Moroccan buildings with an inner garden or courtyard.
ANY GREAT FINDS FROM THAT LAND?
Kind of shoes, bags made of straw and leather, hats, colourful wrap, jewellery made of silver and copper, various spices, Argan oil extracted from the green fruits of the Argan tree that grows in the southwestern region of Morocco…
Take an empty suitcase with you!
YOUR PLAYLIST OR FAVORITE SONG ON REPEAT?
The must visit would be the luxuries hotels around the Medina such as La Mamounia; one of the most iconic structure and design, Royal Mansour; called as the King Palace and harmonized with France inspiration and Moroccan culture, El Fenn; much known and exotic style.
I am impressed with Le Jardin Majorelle, its created with the most exotic plants by France artist Jacquas Majorelle that are collected for 40 years from all around the world. Now, its home for more than 300 plants and an actual therapy.
GREAT FOOD? WHERE?
Nomad, one of the best places to watch the sunset.
If you prefer fine dining and night life, you should go to Bozin.
Le Salama is an option for a place where is close to Jemaa El Fna square and fascinates you with chic decoration in every details.
WHAT DID YOU PACK?
You can spend the whole holiday with long casual dresses, comfortable slippers and a straw hat. Specifically, for the desert, you might have some thick clothes.
WOULD YOU GO BACK? WHY?
It was missing that I haven’t gone for the luxury tent at Sahara Desert. I can even go just for shopping 😃
TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEXT DESTINATION AND DREAM DESTINATION OR JUST DREAMS:)
A 6-month trip to Asia that I will set off with my backpack that I have been dreaming of for a long time. It was delayed a bit due to the pandemic, but I'm looking forward to getting started.
