Dinner in the Desert, Marrakech
Our second day in Marrakech, was a none stop whirl wind in the desert.
We woke up after a perfect night’s sleep at La Mamounia, were told to grab our passports, bikini’s, and sensible shoes.
We weren’t told where we were going, and if you’re a control freak like me – this is a little bit of a ‘mare.
Anxious but excited, we all waited outside the hotel until our cars arrived and took us to our surprise location…
…The airport?? Had they had enough of us and decide to send us back home? NOPE…
We were going on a helicopter tour over the Sahara Desert!
I’d been on two helicopter tours before this (one over New York, and the other over the Grand Canyon), so I was super excited for my third heli – ride!
You could say me and the girls were a little excited…
Time for lift off!
The photo’s don’t do it justice AT ALL, we must have been in the air for a good 45 minutes.
Looking down on the vast desert – even in the air, it makes you feel like a tiny ant in comparison.
We eventually came back down to earth and landed in our spot in the Sahara.
We were greeted by camels, a delicious Moroccan banquet under a huge tent, and quad bikes in the desert. (I told you it was a none stop day!)
*Note to self, when asking the locals to take a nice photo of you both on the camel – make sure they INCLUDE the camels head!
Jumping off the camel, we walked over to the banquet tent and got stuck in.
Banquet in the Desert.
After food we jumped on the quads, and rode through the desert to ANOTHER secret location!
*No photo’s on the squads sorry, I wasn’t risking dropping the camera!*
Our next location was soooo lush, definitely a welcome relaxation spot after a very busy morning.
Personal masseurs, henna painting, champagne on tap, and a cool pool to jump in. All whilst enjoying this beautiful view.
TAKE ME BACK?
Every brunette needs her blondes!
We finished off the day with a little bit of filming. After lots of sun & champagne, it was time to go back to the hotel and get ready for the night…
…which I’ll be posting separately about, this day was jam packed enough! Right?
