In a few days I’ll be travelling for a couple of weeks. This time, it’s not a garden/landscape related event, but one of my own invention. My first stop will be Paris (as in France, not Texas).
I lived in France years ago and have returned since, so I plan to visit with friends, eat spectacular food that’s not on my diet, drink good wines, wander the streets and shop. I’m also going to Maison et Objet and hope to report back on what’s exciting for outdoor there.
I expect to visit some green spaces that will be stark in their winter structure, see the Cartier retrospective at the Grand Palais, and some other events and places that will, for now be a surprise.
After that, I’m on to Fez and Marrakesh for adventure and exploration.
I’m going to try and visit three UNESCO World Heritage sites – the old city of Fez, Voubolis (a ruined Roman city, pictured below) and the Medina in Marrakesh. There will be more shopping and of course a visit to Majorelle. We will be traveling entirely by train in Morocco so that should be really fun.
If I have time to post while on the road, I will. If not it will be when I return.
