It’s not by chance that I’ve chosen Marrakech as to be the first city to visit this year.

There is something about this city that wakes up my senses, makes me feel alive!

Marrakech in January

I consider January to be the worst month of the year because of the freezing cold that is all over Europe. Walking around Marrakech in January without having to wear heavy coats, gloves and scarf was pure bliss.

God bless all the warm places on earth that you can visit in January.

Marrakech. First trip of the year.

Two years passed by since the last time I visited Marrakech. I missed it soooo much.

At the beginning of this year, I called my travel partner in crime Polina and told her “Hey, listen. It’s time to go back“. I expressed to her my strong desire to photograph the small riads in the medina.

Riad hopping: from one road to another

After a long discussion, we made a plan that we called: riad hopping. During one week in Marrakech we stayed in three different riads. The first riad we visited was Numa Marrakech.

There is so much to love about Numa Marrakech: the entrance hall, the flowers, the colours of the walls, the breakfast, the fireplace, the selection of the furnitures, the terrace, the people who work there. Let alone the key location which makes wandering in the souks so easy, without having the fear that you will not find your way back to the riad. If you plan to visit Marrakech, it’s worth checking it out.

For those who know me well, know my love for interior design and small boutique hotels.

So happy to be given the chance to photograph all this beauty at Numa Marrakech.

Jardin Majorelle Rue Yves Saint Laurent – another beautiful place to visit when in Morocco

I wrote a few words in my previous blog post and here, I can share some photos with you. Jardin Majorelle is not an easy place to photograph. The place is crowded and I personally don’t like having strangers in my photos.

It was also very hot and the sun was creating strong shadows and causing high contrasts, which is something that I don’t find very flattering in photography. Turns out your visit to Jardin Majorelle become a photography challenge…

For those reasons, we decided to visit Jardin Majorelle the day after for a second time, with the hope of finding less crowds and cooler temperatures. But it didn’t work out.

Jardin Majorelle Rue Yves Saint Laurent
Jardin Majorelle in Rue Yves Saint Laurent is truly a beautiful place to visit in Marrakesh. What you will find at Jardin Majorelle is: Blue walls, exotic plants and trees, fountains and vibrant colors, a bookstore, a boutique, the Berber Museum and the loveliest café ever where we spent about an hour and drunk something refreshing. I wish it won’t be long before I go back.

La Mamounia Marrakesh

Back in the mid of September, I had the opportunity to travel to Morocco and spend three amazing nights and even more amazing days at La Mamounia, a palace-hotel in Marrakesh. It was actually a trip that my friend and I were planning for months; since last May to be more exact.

Our excitement and joy at the chance to stay at La Mamounia Marrakesh were huge. Before we got there, we were looking at all the hotel pictures on Instagram and we were dying to visit that dreamy place too.

And then the day came when we arrived at a deluxe room overlooking the enchanting gardens of La Mamounia and the famous Koutoubia Mosque. This place had become my home away from home, a new world to discover.

We spent a large part of the day at La Mamounia Marrakesh. Our days began with a delicious breakfast by the pool. Later on, we snapped some photos here and there before we head to the Medina of Marrakesh.

For one of the evenings, we stayed at the hotel where we had dinner at the Moroccan restaurant in a romantic setting with candles. At the end of each day, we always took a stroll in the garden through the central alley, rose bushes, and orange trees. It helped us to digest our meal, and to let our minds wander before we go to sleep.

What a pity, time passes by so quickly when you are having fun. We would have loved to stay a little bit longer. But unfortunately we had to check out …
