As we say goodbye to another year we begin to think about things we have to look forward to in 2018. If you are stuck for ideas here is a planned out six-day holiday for just over £600 including flights and riad (a traditional house built around a courtyard, used as a hotel).
Important: Marrakech is made up of, what I consider, two components: the old city and the new city. We stayed in the old city for that authentic experience.
Day 1: Welcome to Marrakech
The flight was hectic; parents were yelling and children were hitting each other with anything they could reach. Thankfully we soon found ourselves in a private car with air conditioning, tinted windows and bottled water. Walking down the road to our riad, I found myself in the way of many motorcycles and cars. Beware of shop owners calling after you: they will try every language they know to get your attention and also, butchers have a much more open-door policy consisting of hanging carcasses dripping blood on the pavement. It was at that point my sister and I started a little game we like to call; ‘Not the Weirdest Thing I’ve Seen This Holiday’.
