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.

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.

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 …

Trip to Chania

Trip to Chania

When I got the invitation for the trip to Chania, three things came immediately to my mind: amazing food, amazing weather, and generous warm-hearted people. It was impossible to say NO to the invitation. Even with back pains, I packed my luggage (I have two, one was already packed with clothes from Paris) with summer clothes and a swimsuit, and left for my home country, Greece.

Crete in October 

I never thought that in the mid of October I would walk barefoot in the sand in one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, in Balos. And that I would still be wearing white summer dresses while the rest of Europe was freezing cold. Now I know. I know a place where there is still summer while winter has already begun in Vienna.

How to get from Vienna to Chania 

Two flights with Aegean from Vienna to Chania, and I welcome summer back to my life! At the airport in Athens, I was glad to meet a group of like-minded young people with whom I would spend the following days.

Don’t hate me for this. With my little photos on Instagram, I wanted to take you on a journey, and to let you know a little bit more about this beautiful part of the world (which I guess you all know already).

Where we stayed 

During my stay in Chania we stayed at Minoa Palace. Note here that the hotel’s breakfast was amazing (I am drooling over it right now. Perhaps it’s better not to think about it).

A trip to Chania  

Our daily schedule was based on the “senses” concept: hearing, sight, touch, smell, and taste. We visited so many beautiful places like the Kalathenes village, Chora Sfakion, and the fishing village of Loutro. We touched and smelt Cretan herbs at the Botanical Park. We had wine tasting and unforgettable dining experience at Salis restaurant. We ate sea food at Apostolis restaurant and had our last dinner at Santa Marina beach. Not to mention the full moon we saw on our last night in Chania’s old town. Especially that made it more difficult to leave Chania the next day.

Oh yes! I ate a little bit more than I was supposed to. But we were in Crete. When they put in front of you five dishes of fresh lobsters with spaghetti and traditional Cretan cheese pie, you just cannot resist the temptation. If you plan a visit to Crete, you can rest assured that the Cretan people will treat you right.

Thank you Discover Greece and Aegean Airlines for bringing back summer to my life. Even for a few days. It was beautiful.
