Off to Morocco today! After years of day dreaming and months of planning the day has finally come to explore this incredible country.
Not only will we be spending five days in Marrakech including a Friday evening at Djemaa el Fna Square, visit to a hammam (full treatment!), stay in the Medina, getting lost in the souqs and tanneries, and a full-day cooking course including a trip to the spices and fresh produce markets, but we will also have the pleasure of visiting many other stunning treasures the country has to offer:
Stay in a berber village and visit the renowned Kasbah in Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate
Jeep safari and camel trek in the Sahara
A visit to the High Atlas Mountains
Atlantic respite in the coastal towns of Agadir and Essaouira, including a scenic drive up the coast
I recently returned from a week-long escape in Provence, France with my family. It was absolutely magical! We stayed in a Provençal country home in the perch village, Ansouis. The wine tastings, the Michelin meals, the sunshine and laughter made for a ‘moveable feast’.
Just booked tickets to see Baz Luhrmann’s interpretation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s American classic, The Great Gatsby. We’ve all been anxiously awaiting its (belated) arrival, and where better to watch than at the historic Ritzy Cinema in Brixton! The story was one of my favourites from English literature class and to top it off with a stellar cast, costumes designed by Prada, an old-meets-new soundtrack, is a treat indeed! I’m looking forward to darning my grandmother’s pearls, popping a bottle of bubbly, and settling in for what I hope is an unforgettable performance.
