“What are you most excited about for your trip?”
“Seeing something different. I just really want to experience something totally different.”
We just got back from four days in Marrakesh.* It definitely delivered on being something different. Big time.
(*Just to make it easier, I’m going to stick with the Marrakesh spelling instead of Marrakech in these posts.)
Lots of firsts this trip. This was my first time in Africa. My first time in a predominantly Muslim country. My first time flying Ryan Air. My first time flying out of Ciampino.
It was inspirational. I’ve come away with oodles of ideas for design. Tons of things I want to try in the kitchen.
It was cheap. We could eat like kings for less than 15 euro a meal.
(Morocco uses the dirham. I’m giving rough conversions just to give a better idea although dirham conversion is super easy. It is about 10 to 1.)
It was HOT. Temps were over 100 all of our days there. That sun is brutal.
I’m looking forward to sharing more of our trip in the weeks ahead. Bottom line: there were frustrations, but we had a great trip. I might not recommend going mid-summer, but I definitely recommend.
