Morocco indulgent

So we went to one of my favourite spots in the world and this must have been my fifth time to Morocco. Every time I see this oriental, magical place in a different light, learn something new or try flavours new to my lips and heart. The arabic spirit is still surrounding behind every corner of the city, yet with a secretive hint of the mystic and the time far back in ages. The culture is still so captivated, a perfect mix of complete chaos and colours, the traditions so well taken cared of and I love how passion lives in most things people still do with hands. How things are allowed to take time, made with the truth of every souls making.

We stayed in this private mansion we heard about from some friends down in South of France who had been there before. Eight private suits, still preserved as the rich family who let this house be build and decorated it, had left it. The owner now, the son of the founder of this small, hidden hotel is living in a house next to it and he is there to tell you the story or give you the best tips of whatever your search for. The service was absolute top notch and the kitchen delicious. We ate a dinner in the lightened darkness there one night and it was one of the two best dinners we've had. The rest of the nights and lunches we had booked some amazing Riads an kitchen one has to make a reservation at. The Moroccan kitchen is just so tasty and I never get tired of the flavours of cinnamon, cardamon, cumin, coriander, raisin, vegetables, low cooked meat with that delicious couscous, soft and porous like it should, made in a two and a half hours process.

Expect a cavalcade of beautiful inspirational photos from Marrakech the upcoming days. We've had a passionate, romantic and very, very harmonic travel for sure.


Thank you S and T for making this come true! We love you!

  1. I love it there too and it's so easy to get to, yet so exotic for us.
    Your hair has gotten so long, love your kaftan looks.

    1. Thank you. I love it too!

      The hair is a problem though, love to have it up so why have it longer? Feel it gets "too much" when I have it down, like if i'm on my way to a masquerade.

      Hugs,

  2. I agree with Badinage as usual, but Stina I also like very very much Marrakech, but it is not my preferred spot in the world.... There are so many fantastic places all around the world and Europe with fantastic hotels everywhere ..... Each one is different.
    Your pictures are great, because very difficult to take them nowadays, they dont really agree....
    So many tourists want take photos of them.....
    I like your long hair again.
    Hugs

    1. Very true Uta, I tend to love each place I go to because I love changes. I always true to find the most beautiful in every place or city. Different cultures and architectural really inspire me and I can't wait to move away from Sweden again in the future...

      With the photos, Oh yes, they hate it. I had to do it very discretely or just shoot things instead.

  5. Stina. I've been wanting to visit Morocco for such a long time, and I am planning to go to Marrakech this fall. Is this mansion in Marrakech? It looks absolutely stunning and more like an experience than just a hotel. Would you mind sharing the name of the place? Maybe even some restaurant recommendations?

    Glad to hear you had a wonderful time :)

    Warm regards,
    Kikki

    1. Email me if you want the name. If I write it here it will no longer be small and private, many movie stars stay here because it's so hidden and not written about all over.
