Oh hi there little space on the inter webs of mine. It’s been a while, as always. Today I’m back with a new post, one which I have probably mentally written 100 times but have never actually physically written so here it goes…

I’ve just come back from a week long break in Marrakech and I feel like I need a holiday to recover from this holiday. Marrakech is a place like no other. I’ve seen two very extreme sides, and I’m on the fence as to whether or not I’ll actually go back in the future. The souks and the markets sound quaint and quite the adventure however – in real life that is not the case. The strip of where hotels and the regenerated/more tourist friendly area (Geliz) is very much like a country trying real hard to simulate what Europe is deemed to be. 

We stayed in the old town and pretty much got ripped off everywhere we went. Within the first 5 minutes of stepping out of our Riad we were lost and what seemed like a local offering us some friendly directions, was actually an successful attempt of making 50dh from us. We were in the middle of a random alley way, with some morrocan man smiling with his hand out, we foolishly handed the money over and carried on walking. Still lost, but 50dh lighter. At that point I had a bad feeling about the trip but carried on smiling, just incase law of attraction is an actual thing. 

Throughout the whole trip the best money we spent was at the Bahia Palace – have no idea about the history, but it was pretty enough to take instagram photos’ and I guess thats what matters right?

I feel like there is a ‘story time’ kinda video about this trip coming to the YouTubes…
