  1. I went to Marrakech and was fantastic! I enjoyed henna in my hands and bought beautiful djellaba, marvelous lamps, and Morrocan sandals. The experience in Hammans was great. I went in the mesmerizing Atlas Mountain, museums, cooking classes, Medina, and, for me, the Jardin Majorelle- Yves Saint Laurent mansion was one lesson about respecting culture, style of life, and fashion.

  2. Morocco and Marrakech have been on my travel wish list for some time. I love that there are so many things to see. And some great experiences too. We certainly would plan enough time for a hot air balloon and relaxing in a hammam too!

  3. Have I been to Marakech? Not sure. It was a day-trip by coach from a coastal holiday resort to a market town. But it was so long ago that I just remember impressions, not details. Quite an experience, though.
