The Week In Pictures: 6.22.15 | Marrakech

Nubby Twiglet | Marrakech, Morocco

Hello, how have you been?! I’ve been traveling across Morocco and Italy for the past two weeks and for a big chunk of that time, I’ve taken a major break from being online — it’s been so amazing spending my days wandering through unfamiliar cities, taking hundreds of photos, sitting at cafes, window shopping and having plenty of time to catch up with two of my best friends.

I spent last week in Marrakech and wanted to share some of the scenery with you. Marrakech is the fourth largest city in Morocco which is located in northwest Africa. Founded in 1062 AD, the layers of history are apparent around every corner.

We stayed at El Fenn, which is owned by Richard Branson’s sister, Vanessa. A knack for hospitality and a sense of humor runs in the family — her attention to art and even the smallest details made it the perfect retreat after encountering the hustle and bustle of the winding medinas.

The colors in Marrakech are so vibrant. Cobalt blue, orange, fuchsia and lemon yellow are everywhere.

    These pictures are so dreamy!
    Marrakesh reminds me of all the oriental stories and fairy tales I enjoyed as a kid 😀

    Gorgeous photos, just as I expected! Marrakech and Tangier are on my absolute must bucket list in the next few years. I cannot wait to see more! The colors…the textiles, the FOOD! I hope you all came back with some awesome souvenirs!

      With just a few days in Marrakech, we barely scratched the surface but it was such a gorgeous, vibrant place and a good introduction to the country. Looking forward to going back and seeing more of it including Tangier, too. :)
