Jardín Majorelle & Nomad, Morocco

One of the most jaw dropping places we explored in Morocco, was the Jardin Majorelle- a garden brimming with life, bold colour & a memorial to the famous designer Yves Saint Laurent; who came to love the garden as his second home.

In the blistering heat, Olivia, Safia & myself started wandering through the garden, filled with bright colour and light.

Yves Saint Laurent bought the Jardin Majorelle in 1980 and saved it from falling victim to a real estate project and becoming a hotel complex- thanks to that, it's been maintained & remained a gem in the middle of a rather chaotic city.

And of course, it would be rude to not get one of the increasingly famous photographs against the stained, cobalt walls.

Yep. I never thought I'd have done this in a million years, but I caved and bought the 'Ohhh my god. I'm so cultured & well travelled that I have elephant print trousers'. (Their comfy & good for the heat- haters gunna hate...)

After a few hours of wandering, we headed back to the Riad for a break & some pool time before heading out to dinner. Some of the girls had been to Morocco beforehand & had all raved about one restaurant in particular... Say hello to Nomad.

Please, promise me one thing from reading my blog. If you ever go to Marrakech, you 100% need to go to Nomad. The mix of classic & modern Moroccan will blow your mind & their date cake (which is a bit like a sticky toffee pudding), is a memory I will cherish forever. 

Plus, when sat in the evenings on the roof terrace, you have the most glorious view across the city as the sun sets. What's not to love?
