No I did not steal the photo above from Pinterest, this is the Van Der Valk hotel in Sassenheim! Doesn't it look perfect?! The hotel has been completely restyled. In order to celebrate their gorgeous new interior, they threw a big party. I was invited to the party and to spend a night in one of their beautiful hotel rooms! Have a look ;)

Morocco is probably one of my favorite countries. But even though it is so close to Europe, it has a completely different culture. That's why there are a lot of things I wish I knew before I came to Marrakesh.

Last month my boyfriend took me to Maastricht for a weekend. I had been there once before and I loved it so much. The city doesn't look very Dutch, which is probably why us Dutchies like the way it looks so much. Maastricht is super cozy and there is so much to do!

It was my boyfriend's birthday so he got to choose where he wanted to go. Paris was on top of his bucketlist, so that's where we went. 

Outside the medina of Marrakech there is this beautiful blue house and garden. The art deco inspired place used to be owned by Yves Saint Laurent. After the designer died they scattered his ashes over the garden and made it open for the public. Right before Yennhi and I left to the airport we went to visit this place. It was one of the things on top of our list and it was absolutely worth it.

Aït Ben Haddou is a little medieval village in the center of Morocco. This village was built around the year 750 by the berbers and is known for its beautiful kasba's. It has been used to film many movies and series such as Game of Thrones, Prince of Persia, Gladiator, Lawrence of Arabia, etc. Me being a Game of Thrones fan, I had already visited several Game of Thrones locations. So I was excited to see this little town and it was indeed a beautiful experience!

As we traveled from the center of Marrakesh to the Zagora desert we passed some beautiful places. We drove for hours through the Atlas mountains, deserts and palm tree forests. While everyone was asleep, I couldn't stop looking through the window. We took some beautiful photos along the road and these are my favorites.
