Yesterday, I spoke with a friend/former colleague who has spent the last year travelling the world with his wife. And when I say "travelling the world," I mean it in the most literal of ways. So far, he's visited a dozen or so countries across four continents capturing the entire experience on his blog GlackPacking. Overcome by envy, I started planning a rather aspirational excursion of my own, an around-the-world tour via private jet! A friend and I have joked about it for years and now, we have a date: Fall 2020.
Our tour will most likely include Marrakech, Morroco, which has captured the imagination of so many in the design world (From Me To You/The Glamourai, My Marrakesh, and Lonny, just to name a few). Of course, we'll stay in the most luxurious of hotels (of course) where we can wine, dine, and chat about how grand life is! The recently opened Selman Marrakech is a definite option. Designed by Jacques Garcia (you may remember him from The NoMad Hotel), it's the epitome of Morrocan glamour.
"The 56 rooms, suites and villas display Garcia's dramatic tastes, which range from suede walls to studded furniture. Ornate, black-and-white zellij-pattern tiling is everywhere, on floors, pillars and walls; and the addition of black lacquer gives old Moroccan style a sexy feel..." - Condé Nast Traveller
