[dropcap]H[/dropcap]ello from Marrakesh! It’s absolutely scorching here- a balmy 35c in the morning, yikes! It was a bumpy start to our mini moon- moments before we were to board our plane, I had a panic attack! Crazy. I’ll save that story for another day, because for now, we’re here!
Our wedding day went by in a blur, it’s amazing to think how much a year’s planning goes by in a flash. But still, definitely worth it despite the times I wailed that we should have eloped instead.
We’re out here in Morocco for a few days, for a mini-moon, deciding to save for our ‘proper’ honeymoon until next year. One of the reoccurring words of advice I was given was that we really ought to book a break away for a few days because we’d be exhausted after the wedding. They were all right of course.
We are staying at Le Cinq Djellabas, a luxury boutique resort about 15 minutes outside of Marrakesh. There are only 10 bungalows on site, spread out over a large olive orchard. As our plane came into landing, the landscape was a hue of terracotta and earthy colours but in here, everything is green. And there are 2 cats roaming around, so, you know- heaven for me.
At lunch we cooled off with some orange sorbet and it was no word of a lie, the most refreshing, delicious treat in the world. Sitting here by the pool, in this peace and quiet (and a little sandstorm!) is just what I needed.
So, here’s to desert adventures!
