A daytrip to Ourika valley was on my list when travelling to Marrakech last January. The van of our group of 10 pax departed from Jmaa el Fnaa square at 9 am. After a short ride, this was the first stop at Tahanout. It was sunny but cold that morning.
This post is dedicated to my go-to spots in Arnhem in daytime where I gladly come for coffee, tea, wine and a bite or two. I hope all these establishments will survive the economic crisis which is looming now due to the pandemic.
My winter getaway in Marrakech end of January seems so long ago. I was wondering should I share more Marrakech travel stories during this pandemic? Then I become aware that I started this blog as a journal. Therefore I have decided to keep sharing my stories and thoughts, even when they are not pandemic related. I am doing this not because I am ignorant or tone deaf of the current suffering and gloom hanging over us right now but it is my way of reminiscing how life was before COVID-19.
For this year’s IWD post, I would like to dedicate it to Japanese artist, Brooklyn-based, Naomi Okubo. Her paintings are feminine, depicting herself in an environment full of plants, flowers and bursting of vivid colours.
