Good evening beautiful readers.
I hope you all had a wonderful New year and I’m glad you can join me in 2016.
My husband and I returned this week from our trip to Morocco over the holidays.
We booked a YOLO tour with G Adventures. It was our first time with GA, and we were looking forward to seeing if this is something we would do again. After 7 days with G, it is safe to say we loved everything it offered. We loved how much of this stunning country that we got to see, and the experiences we had. My husband always told me that he wants to ” collect experiences, not things.” and that stuck with me. For me, the most beautiful thing about our tour was not the things we saw or the landmarks we visited, but the experiences we had.
We arrived in Marrakesh a couple of days before our tour began, and spent our time in the luxurious Jnane Tamsna. This hotel has to be one of my favourites that I have ever stayed at – because it didn’t feel like a hotel at all. It felt like home, the staff like family members welcoming us with their gracious hospitality. We walked the gardens, as though we were walking in our own backyard. We passed ocean-blue swimming pools glimmering under the sunlight, trees budding with lemons and lives, flower petals strewn delicately all over the ground. We spent the two days in the hotel, without leaving to explore, it was a tranquil paradise, and the most perfect way to begin our Moroccan adventure.

My husband taught me to play tennis one evening and we had so much fun!
Until he made fun of me.
By night fall, we settled back into our hotel room, and started the fire., ordered some Morocco tea, brought out our deck of cards, and sat on the ground for a mint-tea picnic over a game of cards!
I bought three books with me; The Virgin Suicides – Jeffrey Eugenides, my travel journal, and 3 year Q&A book for couples given to us as a gift when we were engaged. We are on our second year of it, so it is nice to be able to read our answers from last year.
My husband said to me “You love being in trees don’t you?” and I said “Yes, yes I do.”
Bugging him when he was trying to relax.
On this particular afternoon, we lay on the grass, listened to one of our favourite songs.
My golden husband. Life is sweet.
I will return with more photographs to share and stories to tell.
