Morocco Holiday Snaps

Yes, it's been a while. Yes, I said I would write my blog weekly. Yes, it was my New Years Resolution and precisely why I don't usually make them. But anyway I thought I'd share a few of my holiday snaps with you and give you my list of excuses as to why I haven't been on top of things lately. Spring cleaning & de-cluttering the house, doing lots of commissioned orders and decorating the bathroom to name but a few. That means that I will have lots of new exciting posts to share with you over the coming few weeks. That is of course if I manage to get on top of my orders, get all the finishing touches in the bathroom done AND get all the clutter in this house sorted. I wouldn't bet money on the latter!
So anyway, here's a few of the better photos from my holiday to Morocco for you to have a gander and I will be back from all the chaos very soon...



The first thing I noticed about Morocco was the rich vibrancy of colours like in this photo taken at Marjorelle Gardens, Marrakesh. I love how the indigo blue contrast with the soft yellow and vibrant pink blossoms.




Once you get over the chaos and congestion of the main Marrakesh Medina it was actually rather pleasant walking about The Souks and seeing all the handmade nick nacks for sale. I wish I'd had more money with me as there was loads I wanted to buy!



This lovely tent was actually on our hotel roof! This is where we had breakfast and where I was often found escaping the midday sun or reading in the evenings.


This is probably one of my favourite snaps from the holiday and was taken while we were travelling through the Atlas Mountains.


This was a Berber Village we stopped at called Ait Ben Haddou. It is also know as the 'Cinema Village' and lots of films and TV series have been filmed here including Gladiator, Prince of Persia and Game of Thrones.




One of the highlights of the trip for me was staying out in the Sahara Desert under the stars. the sky was so clear you could see thousands of stars and even the Milky Way arcing across the sky. This picture was taken camel riding out into the desert at sunset.




Our hotel was right in the centre of Marrakesh and you could actually see right out onto the main square, the Jemaa El Fna. This photo was taken at dusk when the place really came alive with market traders, food stalls, entertainers and even snake charmers!
