New Orleans Swamp Tour, Louisiana

We piled into our hire cars and drove the thirty odd minutes out of New Orleans' French Quarter to the wetlands and swamps. We'd been recommended to take a tour with Cajun Encounters, who allow you the opportunity to see one of the only remaining preserved wetlands in Louisiana. We spent the next two hours cruising the swamps, feeding alligators with marshmallows and enjoying the true beauty of Louisiana's wetlands.

Riad Star: A Charming, Intimate Oasis in Marrakech

Riad Star, the former home of Josephine Baker is a charming, intimate oasis hidden deep inside the maze that is the Medina. It is marked simply with a single star on the front door, discreet and hidden, which only adds to it's tranquil vibe. From the moment you step inside that star marked door you will suddenly feel at home in this beautiful place. You will forget any difficulties you had locating it (a common occurrence in the labyrinth that is the Medina) as you are welcomed into the open arms of the warm, friendly staff.
