Our Travels

Our next travel adventure is Cape Town

A few weeks ago we were discussing where we should travel to in October/November for our next adventure, we wanted it to be a long haul destination and batted around a few ideas, including Thailand, Far East & South Africa. I wanted Mike to influence this trip as Morocco had been something I’d wanted to do for years. We finally settled on South Africa and decided that we would go in November, straight after the World Travel Market in London…

Countdown to Hong Kong

Mike was born there, he left when he was 13 years old, so I’m fascinated to see what he remembers by visiting the family’s old haunts and what has changed over the decades since they moved to the UK. March is also the 20th anniversary of when we first met and Mike’s birthday, so it’s going to be a very special week for the two of us. At the moment we’re working in excess of 80 hours a week booking…

Riad Dar Mayssane, Rabat

When we were planning our trip to Morocco, everyone was saying that we should include at least 1 riad, for us that was the Dar Mayssane in Rabat. Isabelle, the owner contacted us prior to arrival to check how we were travelling and what time to expect us, she gave us instructions how to find the property and where to park. On arrival Isabelle greeted us and showed us our room, La Belle Endormie on the top floor of the…

Hotel Atlas Les Almohades, Tangier

We decided on the 4* Atlas Les Almohades for our stay in Tangier as it overlooks the Bay of Tangier, had WiFi and offered free parking onsite. On our journey from the Tangier airport through the city, we discovered that there is so much construction happening, therefore it wasn’t a surprise to find a building site on the beach directly opposite our hotel, for the new Tanja Marina Bay. For this reason, we were allocated a pool view room at…

Our tour to discover Morocco

Our road trip to discover Morocco all started with the Ryanair €9.99 winter sale, where I spotted an offer from Madrid to Tangier. Usually we can’t find any deals from Lanzarote so when I spotted this flight I booked it on a whim. I had always wanted to visit Marrakech, despite our close location to Morocco from the Canary Islands it’s not cheap or convenient to fly direct. Binter offer a service but I haven’t found flights under 400 euro…

Restaurant Alibaba, Tangier

We discovered the Restaurant Alibaba on our first walk about in Tangier. We were staying at the 4* Atlas les Almohades on the Avenue Mohammed VI and had walked along the front to the port and medina on arrival. Alibaba stood out from the other establishments in that area, it was the fabulous aroma wafting out from the restaurant that first drew our attention and we decided to eat there later that evening. The menu was split into a choice…

Le Dhow Restaurant Lounge Bar, Rabat

Our riad had recommended two local restaurants for our evening meal in Rabat, we opted for Le Dhow. Le Dhow is a wooden dhow boat that has been converted to offer a floating restaurant and chill out lounge moored on the waterfront of Rabat, underneath the Kasbah D’Oudayas. When we boarded we were shown to the dining room on the top deck, it was warm and cosy, out of the cool evening breeze. We were given a romantic table for…
