#TBT Marrakech

Today I look back to a trip Mrs P and I took just over four years ago to Marrakech, Morocco. It was a fabulous trip, with all the key ingredients. Warm sunshine on our faces, generous hospitality, culture, art and the beautiful, intricate architectural wonders that exist across the Islamic world. The destruction of large swathes of the Middle East is a tragedy that will negatively affect generations of the people that live there. And has deprived the world of many of its man made wonders forever. I’m glad that I’ve had the opportunity to visit a few parts of the Middle East in my life. I hope yet to see Jordan and Iran. I’m disappointed that I will likely never get to see the magnificence of Syria and Iraq. Or what is left of them.
