Soup on a hot day is not on my mind and I am sure that’s the case for nearly everyone. But when it’s a cold orange and carrot gazpacho, then there is a dramatic shift in my mindset. This is an ideal lunch when it’s sizzling midsummer and you want... Continue reading

I have had this experience several times now and it’s nothing to fear. In fact it’s fun. The first time I booked at the Bloc at Gatwick I was very dubious and full of the claustrophobic jitters. I booked a room with a window for that inaugural night just in... Continue reading

It’s probably common knowledge now that I have a deep and abiding love for cookies. Luckily for me, Morocco is like the cookie capital of the world. They are everywhere everyday ! In my recent travels around the North, they greeted me and my tastebuds in every town and riad.... Continue reading

I am a self confessed pink lover. I look for it everywhere and it stands out to me inadvertently. Having said that, my house is not full of pink things nor do I wear it a lot. It’s really a visual love, a love of that dynamic pop of colour.... Continue reading

These are easily found and bought in souks throughout Morocco....the blue is thought to keep away flies and mosquitos....so my question is.... as Chefchouen is saturated in blues of every shade, is it fly free ? I was there not long ago and was so overcome with the blueness and... Continue reading

All beautiful places in Morocco (and the not so beautiful ones too ) have street cats in all shapes, colours and sizes. I love seeing them and often pat them or hold the tiny ones just so they know a human loved them even just for a couple of minutes... Continue reading
