Morocco Part 2 – Dar Ahlam

Dar Ahlam

When we decided to go to Morocco for our honeymoon, we knew we wanted to go to Marrakech for starters, but didn’t know where to go from there. It seemed we had two options. One, head towards the coast, or, two, head towards the Sahara. Knowing that the Moroccan coast is unlike the West Coast where we live, we still felt like the Sahara would offer a much different experience than we were used to. So, we headed East out of Marrakech, and crossed the Atlas Mountains over the Tichka Pass, which was an adventure in and of itself. We then headed through Ouarzazate, the center of Morocco’s significant film industry, and over to Skoura. Skoura sits in the middle of a large oasis, filled with palms, and ancient Kasbahs. In the middle of all the magic, is Dar Ahlam. An oasis within an oasis. A place with only nine rooms and three villas, al fresco dining, and each personally prepared meal being served at a different location throughout the property. It was truly outrageous, and an incredible experience. If you get the chance, go there!

Flashback Friday – A Place in the Sun

There’s nothing better than getting to go back to my birthplace, Kenya as often as I can and the Masai Mara is one of my favorite places in the world. Here are some of my treasured moments on a safari last year.

Masaii Mara

The place we like to go on safari literally has no one as far as the eye can see. It feels like going back in time to when we would safari as a family.

Road Trip to the Rockies

Taking a flight, and flying above it all, is definitely the quickest way to get to wherever you’re going.  But hitting the road always cements a bounty of memories, that no airline ticket can buy. Happy 4th from Colorado!
