Show Us Your Favourite...with Forty Percent Fringe : Sixty Percent Face

Hi Guys, I am now on my month off but here is my first lovely guest blog. Say hello to Helen, she is going to tell us about her favourite holiday.

Hi everyone, Helen from Forty Percent Fringe : Sixty Percent Face blog here! Chantele asked me to write about my favourite holiday destination. I've been fortunate enough to travel to some really fun places over the past few years, like Paris, Brac in Croatia and Bangalore in South India. But more recently hubby and I booked a last-minute holiday to Marrakech in Morocco to conquer the winter blues.

We went in January so it was warm enough to laze in the sun but more importantly not so hot that we couldn't explore! We stayed in an all-inclusive hotel outside of the city so we enjoyed using the swimming pool and drinking many, many cocktails, but most of the time we ventured into the city centre where the real fun was to be had! During the days we wandered around the souks and bartered for ceramics, herbs and leather goods before settling ourselves on the balcony of a restaurant to drink copious amounts of fresh mint tea and watch as below us Jemaa el Fna, the centre of the city and home to the largest open-air restaurant in the world, came alive with snake charmers, monkey trainers, acrobats and storytellers and the barbecues were lit. When it got dark we made our way out into the buzzing night market and bought freshly-squeezed orange juice from one of the many juice bars and then made our way to the barbecues for warm bread, skewers and tagine. Heaven! On other days we visited palace ruins, long-lost tombs, exotic gardens and various fascinating museums.

Thanks for letting me revisit my holiday memories! Marrakech was by far one of my favourite holiday destinations and I'd love to go back one day to carry on exploring, there's just so much to do and see. If you're thinking of taking a trip to Marrakech, check out my blog post for tips on the best bits; you'll also find lots more photos from our holiday :)

Helen's holiday looks amazing! I am so jealous, Marrakech is high up on my to visit list and seeing all Helen's pictures has made me want to go even more. Anyone else been to Marrakech? Or have you been somewhere else equally amazing?
