In the Heart of Fes ... Part 1

Hello to all of you! A few weeks ago a got back from yet another trip to Morocco. I’ve been very busy lately so I haven’t had a chance to share my souvenirs with you.

Here is a little journey to Fes… the beautiful Imperial City!

We arrive in Fes and head straight for the old medina. What a storybook scene! If anything, the old medina of Fes truly makes you feel like you have fallen back in time.

What better place to relax then on a fabulous rooftop terrace overlooking the old city.

A chicken tajine with freshly squeezed orange juice …

Hmmm… I think I’ll have the chicken and almond pastilla with mint tea instead!

As you are walking through the narrow dingy alleys where everything looks one millon years old and abbondoned,  don’t be fooled for behind closed doors are hidden amazing homes waiting to be discovered. Fes has many guest houses which they call Riads.

You would never expect what’s inside: fountains, mosaics, an interior courtyard, a rooftop terrace. What a perfect place to unpack our suitcases for a couple of days as we discover Fes.

We got the best room, on the last floor, overlooking the rooftop terrace.  Believe me, the daily hick up the millions of steep stairs were well worth it!

The early bird get the worm… 
or an incredible view of the sunrise over the old medina.

More of incredible Fes to come in Part 2!

Stay tuned for more!
