Hotel Mamounia is one of Marrakech’s big attractions and is probably the most famous and luxurious hotel in the country.

I didn’t lodge at La Mamounia, but I enjoyed walking by its impressive gardens.

It is  a classical luxury hotel, full of history with guest such as Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Charles Chaplin, Édif Piaf… Also some movies have been recorded in here, like “The man who knew too much”, from Alfred Hitchcock.

There are some excellent restaurants, such as the Moroccan food one, but also the cafe, with live music.

Hotel is great – located closely to the medina, right in front of the shopping mall Menara Mall . Outside pool is also great and breakfast is just phenomenal!

Djamaa El Fna – Square, Marrakesh

This is easily Marrakesh’s main sight and a place where you can easily spend a couple of hours just walking around or watching the scene. Here, you will find all kinds of arts and all kinds of food in an entertaining setting.

Loved the craziness of it all. Very busy, and you really don’t know where to look first! A really fun place.

Its beautiful buildings and its rich culture, together with its colourful people makes it unique.

The region is inhabited by Berber people who practice a traditional way of life. Despite its proximity to Marrakech, it is still considered relatively “unspoiled”.

JERUSALEM : THE ETERNAL CITY


WESTERN WALL

P1120568 P1120563 P1120548 P1120545

 

When I was in Jerusalem I of course visited the Western Wall. You have surely heard about it. It’s an important place for the Jews and many are praying there. You can write a prayer on a paper and put it into the wall if you want.

Friday evenings are the best time to visit as shabbat sets in, with many thousands flocking to the Kotel (Hebrew name), the sound of the faithful singing, their songs and prayers cutting through the air;

No doubt a  place where everyone should go and experience .

 

Ben Yehuda Street

Ben Yehuda St area is a very lively area especially at night, there are many pubs and restaurants in and around it and its one of the nicest areas to hang out in.

 

DAVID CITADEL HOTEL and Mamilla Mall

It’s one of the most beautiful hotel in Jerusalem .

A great plus is the location…very close to the old city .

The view of the Old City was incredible.

The David Citadel Hotel on King David Street commands a prime site at the most desirable location in Western Jerusalem, across from Alrov Mamilla Avenue and overlooking the ancient walls of the Old City, the historical Tower of David and Jaffa Gate.

Charlevoix is one of the little waterfront villages that charmed me the most on MY visit to northern Michigan. I regret that I don’t have more, and better, photos to share. The town has two waterfronts – one of Lake Michigan, one on Lake Charlevoix. The marina is on Lake Charlevoix.

A number of houses in town were designed by architect Earl Young and have been called “mushroom houses” by the locals.

I really enjoyed my dinner in Legs Inn.

This is an authenic Polish restaraunt in a small crossroads town in Northern Michigan. 

Watching the sun set over Lake Michigan was fabulous.

MACKINAC ISLAND,MICHIGAN

The Grand Hotel is easily one of the most distinguishable landmarks and buildings on the island. Its sweeping wooden porch dominates its surroundings, and the grounds in front of it are always covered in a stunning array of vibrantly colored flowers.

There is a lot of appeal in a trip across to Mackinac Island. First, no cars, so if you want to get around, bikes are a great way to go. Probably more importantly, there is the allure of fudge! Mackinac is famous for the confection, and stores that sell it line the main street of the island.
