Located just 40 kilometers away from Marrakech, is a rough and rocky desert landscape sitting in the shadows of the Atlas Mountains. A morning riding the Quad bikes is a fun way to spend some time while visiting the red city – it makes for a great day trip from Marrakech. For those of us who have time constraints and didn't make it to the Sahara desert this was a nice alternative to experience some desert adventures. NEW POST on the blog with more details of this desert adventure. #travelbucketlist #speechlessplaces #wonderful_places #beautiful_travel #wanderlust #wonderful_places #moroccotravel #traveldeeper #morocco_vacations #discovermorocco #magicalmorocco #afarmag #instamorocco #osinmorocco #agafaydesert #agafay

Where to stay in Marrakech: Villa des Orangers

There is a slew of mega-hotels and Riads in Marrakech but if you are looking for a quiet place with 5-star luxury away from the chaos that Marrakech is famous for, book your stay at Villa des Orangers. People who visit Marrakech frequently would agree that Villa des Orangers is THE place to stay in Marrakech for that authentic Moroccan Experience and hospitality. Big carved doors and intricately carved plaster archways frame a courtyard with orange and olive trees, water gurgles soothingly off a fountain and from inside appears a friendly face with sweet mint tea and cookies. Then the current owners remodeled the riad into a magnificent hotel that has been a Relais et Châteaux member property since 2001.

We celebrated Mr. Suburbia’s birthday over the weekend with a trip to @hp_village Most stores now require that you have an appointment and ofcourse we didn’t plan ahead so we got some coffee and did some window shopping. 🥻Silk blouse from @seekcollective my new sustainable fashion find!

A Perfect Week: Best things to do in Marrakech in 7 days

Most people planning a trip to Morocco manage to get to The Sahara desert, Fes, even to Chefchaouen, nicknamed the “blue pearl of Morocco,” on a 10 day trip. Here is how our 7 day Marrakech Itinerary looked: 2 days in the Atlas Mountains 1 day to Essaouira on the Atlantic Coast 3 days in Marrakech 1 day to the Agafay Desert Within walking distance of must-see Marrakech sights like Jemaa El Fna, the Badi Palace and the Saadian Tombs sits the intricate Bahia Palace. On day three in Marrakech, we rode Quad bikes on the Agafay Desert If you are short on time but looking for some desert adventures, a fun experience is to cruise the desert landscape on quad bikes.

One day in Essaouira, on Morocco's Atlantic coast

The photogenic coastal town that sits on the Atlantic coast of Morocco had an old Medina with streets lined with whitewashed house and Majorelle blue shutters, souks that sells everything including some questionable aphrodisiac, thousands of seagulls flying around boats that matched those shutters, spectacular sunsets… it was quickly making its way into my heart. If you are arriving by car or taxi you probably entering through the Bab Sbaa entrance but the Bab Doukhala or Bab Marrakech is how the caravans made their way to the Essaouira medina in the past to trade. Inside the Argan oil cooperatives, you can see various products made from argan oil, the almond butter with argan oil and a bottle of the oil are worth bringing home. When you meander to Bab Doukkala through the mellah, the old Jewish quarter of the medina, don’t miss to look for stone door signs with the six-petal rose of Mogador, i.e. Essaouira.

Life isn’t a matter of milestones, but moments - Rose Kennedy A little fleeting moment in Morocco! 📍: Kasbah Tamadot a @virginlimitededition property 🥻: @anitadongre is a huge lifestyle brand and I love their @anitadongregrassroot collection. Outfits from this collection help in preserving traditions, supporting artisanal skills, employing conscious processes & practices. Most textiles in the collection are hand dyed or block printed by hand like this one I’m wearing here. I 💗 this line which was designed to sustain this age-old craft tradition and create local employment opportunities for rural artisans from Indian villages. Had to use that sari emoji! ☺️ Blog links in bio. #travelbucketlist #speechlessplaces #wonderful_places #beautiful_travel #wanderlust #wonderful_places #moroccotravel #vletravels #morocco_vacations #discovermorocco #magicalmorocco #instamorocco #osinmorocco

Riding ATVs on the Agafay Desert near Marrakech

but we had quite an adventure riding the ATVs on the moon-like landscape on the Agafay desert near Marrakech! Located just 40 kilometers away from Marrakech, southwest on Route d’Amizmiz is a rough and rocky desert landscape sitting in the shadows of the Atlas Mountains. Riding ATVs on the moon-like landscape of Agafay Desert They come here for horse-riding, dune-gazing, riding quad bikes on the stone desert and canoeing on Lake Lalla Takerkoust, a man-made reservoir.

My daughter mentioned that I have been posting pictures of the same fence... which has been my view for the last few months... so as change in scenery queued up a few photos from our trip to Morocco. Here is a throw back to wandering the beautifully colorful and chaotic streets of the Medina in Marrakech.
