Last year, when we were living in Marrakech, my friend Amanda from the popular food and travel blog MarocMama, invited me to experience first hand what her food tours are, a three hours guided walk where you eat the most representative Marrakchi & Moroccan food, which probably is completely different from all those fade, overcooked tagines you tried in your very fancy Moroccan-ish restaurant.
Our goodbye week in Marrakech was a great one. We enjoyed the incomparable hospitality of La Mamounia Marrakech, shared meals and cocktails with our friends (I found the best pizza in the city!) and thanks to Moroccan Guides, we finally visited Essaouira, a coastal city in Morocco I was impatiently dreaming to discover since day one.
What a beginning of the year we had, right? Not the brightest, smoothest one :(. On nicer news, personally speaking, this first month of 2015 has started quite active with lots of work, travels and projects that are inspiring me and making want for more of this twenty fifteen.
Let’s make a review of the positive things we discovered these past days.
We visited Le Flouka on our first (and only) escapade from the city. Some friends hinted us about lalla takerkoust and were kind enough to invite us for lunch. Lake wasn’t as impressive as it used to be since the water levels are tremendously low, but we still enjoyed of a sunny but breezy day before Summer high temperatures were here.
June was a complicated moody month for me. During June we finally felt home in our apartment. There are still things to change or improve but we have learned one important thing during all these expat years: to have tons of patience.
June was a bit of a hazy month for me too. Way too hot days and nights that were spent doing the minimum of physical effort. But was also a month of late evenings spent at our terrace with a glass of rosé on hand.
