In April, I got to spend a couple of days in Marrakech, Morocco. It was a business trip, but I managed to fit in a few sightseeing sessions. I absolutely wanted to see the Majorelle Garden, so that was the first thing I did when I got some free time. I also went to the Koutoubia Mosque and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place, but that will be for another post 😉
“Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé discovered the Jardin Majorelle in 1966, during their first stay in Marrakech. […] [They] bought [it] in 1980 and saved it from falling victim to a real estate project and becoming a hotel complex. […] Yves Saint Laurent would say he was able to find an unlimited source of inspiration in the Jardin Majorelle, and that he dreamt many times about its unique colours.” [Source: jardinmajorelle.com]
In September 2016, I had the chance to travel to Asia for the first time. I went to Beijing, China. And it was quite a journey! I visited the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, and the Great Wall of China. Let’s relive this trip in pictures…
Sorry for the long absence, but work has been a b**ch lately and I couldn’t find a single moment to stop and write something down. I’m glad I can do it now and connect with you again after this delay 🙂
So last week I got back from an a-ma-zing journey in Japan. I started with Gifu, I went to Kyoto, and finished with Tokyo. I’ll show you some pictures of these great cities, starting with the first one I visited.
I know that if I ever have the opportunity to go back, I will jump at the chance! And if you think of going there: stop thinking about it and just go!!! You will not regret it. The people are super sweet and extremely respectful. The views are simply stunning. And you have great food. What more could you ask for?
I thought that today I would try a different kind of articles and in doing so launch a new category: Travels.
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page”
These past couple of years, I had the chance to do some very interesting travelling – and I found out that I love, absolutely love it. I travelled by myself, and I think that made it even more special. First of all, I got to choose what I was doing every single day and I didn’t have to consult any other people. Second of all, if I had a problem I had to take care of it by myself too and I learned a lot.
The first time I travelled – far away – by myself was to California, and more specifically to the San Francisco area. For most people, San Francisco is on their dream destination list. I must admit… I was not disappointed! I took one of those tour buses, very touristy but I didn’t care because I wanted to see as much as possible and I had only one day there so I had to make the most of it. And I did!
Are you surviving the crazy heat? I barely am. Seriously. When you are not at the beach, and when the temperature is above the 30°C, it is unbearable. So what I really want right now is to spend a few days on the Belgian coast. Luckily, I will in a couple of weeks (hopefully, it won’t rain by then :p) …
And since I know I’m going to Knokke for two days, I’m already packing in my head. I thought I would share it with you 😉
