hey hey hey! Guess who’s back!? After a few – very much needed – weeks of vacation, I am back to reality and life. I’ve been slowly but surely selecting a few images to share with ya and it’s been a bittersweet experience; going through the memories of all these amazing places while hitting the wall of reality, it ain’t easy. First world pains.
So, instead of making a boring “travel guide” (there’s already 1000 guides for these cities) I will share little snippets of my favorite spots, it’s almost as if you could peek into my memories.
The cities I visited were Paris, Barcelona, and Munich in Europe and Fez, Meknes, and Chefchaouen in Morocco. Needless to say each place was unique and stunning. I’ll start with my absolute fave: Morocco!
These images are some moody snapshots of the medina in Fez, a 1200 year old city full of history that words simply cannot describe. The food, the colours, the culture – insanity!
Enjoy the show (oh and if you have any travel questions, just ask away! I’m happy to share any tips).
Everything in Morocco is as you would imagine: chaotic, beautiful, and mystical. It’s a country of stunning contrasts. Sometimes you feel you’re in a James Bond movie running away from the bad guys, escaping through narrow streets and busy markets, and then all of the sudden you become Carrie in Sex and The City sifting through precious fabrics and delicate oils and spices while taking a sip of mint tea.
It’s kind of surreal to see how some of the crafts in Morocco are still being done the same way they were done hundreds of years ago – almost as if time didn’t go by. Basically you peek through a family’s workshop door and you peek through time.
Sigh…this country will really romance your heart.
