Easter holidays in Morocco. Part 1: from Agadir to Essaouira

Last year we have already been to Morocco, but very shortly, only three days. That time we visited the northern Morocco and its three cities Rabat, Chefchaouen and Fes (A weekend away in Morocco). Many people told us afterwards that we were crazy, to travel so fast and so intense. However, this was a conscious decision: we travel so quickly in order to find the places we like the most to be able to come back there… Morocco was one of these places. So here we were, in Morocco, this time for 6 days and 4 cities on our itinerary: Agadir, Essaouira, Marrakesh and Casablanca.

Sunny Sicilian getaway

Especially now, when the weather in Berlin makes us dreaming about better (read: warmer) place, it is so satisfying – thinking about last long weekend on Sicily. We had such luck with the wetter, bright sun and clear blue skyes three days out of four, temperatures over 18 degrees, everything blossoming and pleasantly smelling… This all was as a bonus to the beautiful nature, cozy cities, delicious food, fresh vegetables and good wine. Therefore, this post is less words, more pictures, juicy colors and captured impressions.

About Hong Kong

When I was preparing for this post, I suspected that Hong Kong has an outstanding position in the world economics. Although I didn’t think that this position is so high: Hong Kong possesses the highest Financial Development Index score and in 2016 has crowned the World Competitiveness Yearbook leaving Switzerland is on the 2nd place, Germany on the 12th and Russia is on the 44th. This, probably, explains the high prices in this megapolis. Oh, how high they are! Hong Kong even beats New York at some points, not talking about Berlin. Nevertheless, cheer up those who travel on a budget, there is also a good news: in the bars area they have happy hour all around and in Hong Kong you can eat in the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant.

A day-trip from Madrid: charming Toledo

I would declare that Toledo is probably one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. Peaceful sandy colors, narrow cobblestone streets, beautifully decorated houses and impressive doors, wonderful views to the city roofs from various observation points. Besides, you need less than an hour to reach this city from Madrid. This all makes Toledo a perfect candidate for a day-trip from Madrid.

Hop-the-Spain in August 2016

Our last trip to Spain was hilarious, very diverse and entirely packed with the full-time activities, that we did not explore much in the sense of wide-scale travelling. We had a surf-camp in the north of Spain, a wedding of good friends in southern Spain and mission to explore the best club of the world on an island. Nevertheless, here are some tips for you if you find yourself in Bilbao/ San Vicente de la Barquera/ Altea/ on Ibiza about what to see, to do and to eat in those places.
