Cote D'azur

 
Turns out whiling away the summer in a big villa in the south of France is a good as it sounds.   

In truth, perhaps the trip was a desire to revisit the follies of my youth. A heady cocktail of summer memories slinking around the Cote d'Azur and a few Bridgette Bardot films lead to a vision of a lazy summer doing nothing with agreeable persons. My vision was all lengthy shaded lunches breaking up languid days and sultry nights spent shuffling along the quayside. So I gathered my peeps, found a charming villa in a hillside town above St. Tropez and settled in for a summer long lounge.

Morocco

Morocco

Morocco is a land of color and anomaly. It boasts an ancient history spanning millennia which saw Roman rule, Vandal settlement, a blanketing of Islamic culture and, in our era, French refinement.

I fell in love with this North African nation when my husband took me there on our third date. I had a magical adventure and knew I had to share its mysteries with the travelers in my life. The legendary square Jemaa el Fna in the medina of Marrakech is a trip back in time. Way back. I didn't really understand how far back until we were deep in the labyrinthine streets and an electrical surge caused a black out in the entire medina. As candles flickered alive, we were transported back a thousand years, to a time long before black outs, to an imperial city in its medieval glory.
