Finally, three months late to the game, I’m putting together a blog from my amazing time in morocco, which started at the dreamy Scarabeo Camp in the stone desert outside of Marrakech.
getting through the craziness of the Marrakech airport (after drone confiscations and the perils of currency exchange), the ride to and subsequent arrival at the desert camp felt like floating on a heavenly cloud. once I got there, I never wanted to leave. no internet, no plugs, just tents and desert and great food and delicious wine.
an afternoon and evening full of camel rides, fellowship with wonderful people, lots of moroccan tea (and some whiskey) quickly melted into a candlelit dinner with moroccan music echoing through the desert, hot and spicy tangines, and a stunning night full of stars.
After camping out in the desert luxury of the Stone Desert, I escaped to this beautiful boutique riad in the center of Marrakech city – Riad Berbere is one of the most calming and peaceful hotels I’ve ever stayed in while traveling internationally, and is definitely somewhere I’m excited to stay again!
