There is no shortage of places to eat and drink in the Marrakech medina. From curb-side stalls selling bread and orange juice to open air restaurants serving the finest Moroccan food to upmarket cocktail bars, Marrakech medina has options for all tastes and budgets.
Much like Morocco itself, its cuisine combines traditional elements with outside influences which reflect the nation’s rich history. The indigenous Berber fare combines with flavours from Southern Europe and the Middle East to create a unique and tasty cuisine.

Those that have been following my updates on Facebook would know that I have become somewhat of a keen cyclist on my latest trip to Thailand. Not because I cycle at home – I don’t even own a bike – but because I like being active on my travels and think that exploring on two wheels is one of the best ways to get a feel for a place.
Denmark is often considered one of the happiest countries on the planet, while its lively capital, one of the world’s most liveable cities. Copenhagen is cool and cosmopolitan and I got to see what all the fuss is about first hand on my visit in November.
Koh Chang Day Cruise
The speedboat appeared from around the corner and made its way to the beach, hopping across the waves. We jumped on and a couple of minutes later were climbing onto the deck of Thaifun’s boat where we were due to spend the majority of the day cruising around Koh Chang and the nearby islands.
Escape the crazy pace of Bangkok and head north to the charming city of Chiang Mai. The laid-back pace of life here seems at odds with the throngs of tourists visiting the city, yet it somehow manages to retain an air of calm not found in the capital.
