If you follow my instagram you'll know that I've spent the last week with a severe case of the holiday blues after an amazing trip to Marrakech. Eight old friends, sunshine and copious amounts of gin made for a lovely, giggly few days away.
We spent a couple of days in the Medina and at the souk buying up some beautiful pieces of craft and watching folk making all sorts of things, from textiles to tea to sieves to jewellery to leather bags. Unfortunately the Moroccans are a bit camera shy (or maybe they're just fed up of tourists pestering them for pictures) or I would have had more photos of the artisans in their workshops.
We rode quad bikes through the desert and drank sweet mint tea with some locals in a village with a view of the Atlas Mountains. We enjoyed a special day at the luxurious Taj Palace (which houses the most beautiful library I've ever seen), followed by a night out involving an eclectic mix of belly dancers, clowns and French DJs at Le Comptoir. Our bellies were sore from laughing by the time we left.
These are just a few of my pictures but there are more to come. I want to go back already.
