We are gearing up for another trip. This time we'll be heading back to North Africa for a week in Morocco. It will be a really neat trip for a variety of reasons.

We'll be fresh from trips to Lisbon - with the Moorish architecture, and in Paris we can brush up on our French. It's always nice to get a dose of sun in the middle of the cold winter, too.

All of those beautiful patterns, colors, and markets already have us very excited.

Our trip will begin in Marrakech and we're not quite sure if we'll venture to Essaouira or Chefchaouen as well, but we're open to suggestions and tips!

So far I've been checking out Hip Morocco and the beautiful Riads, like Dar One. All of the photos I see look absolutely incredible, which doesn't make decision making any easier.

We went in 2004, so I don't know if things have changed, but you can not miss Essaouira! It was our favorite place of all. Marrakech was great, but a tad touristy and so it was a bit stressful with all of the carpet-peddling schemes. But so beautiful. Fez was also amazing.

There is this amazing place to stay in Marrakech, Peacock Pavilions, run by this woman who has a beautiful blog called My Marrakech. You have probably come across it in your research.

You're going to have a great time! Can't wait to hear more.

Thanks, Rachel!

We're planning to go to Essaouira for 2 days. The Peacock Pavillions look beautiful, but we're planning to stay in the Medina. I will save that though... maybe we'll be back!
