It has been two years since I’ve been on a vacation, that sounds crazy! I missed everything about my roots: the culture, architecture, mosaics and the colourful souks. The natural beauty products and their traditional fashionable clothing. Gosh, I missed my great grandmother and her feminist stories with a touch of humour! Her laughs and her wise life lessons, I missed her a lot. I missed the farm of my grandfather and the sound of his voice when he calls me or my little brothers from far. As a born and raised Moroccan girl in the Netherlands, is the Moroccan vibe we have here not the same as in Morocco. Surely, versatile Morocco.
I’m going to Morocco by car, driven by my hero of a dad. We go through Belgium, France and Spain before we take the ferry to Tangiers. It’s going to be a long trip, but definitely one with joy and a touch of annoyance, because of sleepyheads that drops on your shoulders.
The first thing that I do is settle in our home. I have the habit to go through every room and corner to visually remind myself of memories that I have experienced in our home. Then I visit my room and make it my own and homey as soon as possible! Only then I’m able to rest and enjoy my vacay. Loves, are you excited as I am? Follow my journey during my trip on my Instagram and see a glimpse of Morocco and get inspired!
During my vacay I hope to work on my time management. I really want to learn it, because I’m juggling between my studies, blog work and chores. It’s like that 24 hours isn’t enough! I worked with planners and to do lists, it’s not working for me. If you have any tips Loves, share them with me! I’m happy to try them out.
Back to my vacay: you can read my excitement, yay! Have you been to Morocco or another Islamic country? I’m curious about your experience, if you blogged about it feel free to share your links.

Thank you! Xx
Thanks for sharing! And yes I also agree with alattestyle- BEAUTIFUL PICTURES. Thank you for also sharing your struggle with time management! I am also focusing on it- I haven’t blogged in about a month! I am making progress in my ‘real life’ though so I won’t complain. I also recently read in Emily Ley’s Grace not Perfection that though we all seek balance in life, we’ll never actually attain perfect balance. Why? Because we’re not perfect. I’m learning (learning) to be okay with my best- living in grace, not seeking perfection.
Thanks for giving me something to engage with! Enjoy your vaca! Keep the beautiful posts coming!
Gosh, well said! Thank you darling. Xx

Cute letter, hope you have a lovely time on your trip!
And yes, the time management struggle is real! I don’t know how some people can do so much in no time at all!
Thank you! That’s a question I ask myself, almost getting jealous of them! Xx
I am interested to read what alternatives you have for using a planner!!
Just a notebook! Xx
