i went to morocco by myself,a lifelong dream finally coming true.I am a 40 ish single woman from Montreal.Needless to say, I was advised against it by a few,considering al the "usual" reservations some of us might have or experienced. As soon as I put my feet on the ground,I fell in love with the colors,smells,noises and craziness of Marrakesh.Incredibly exhilarating and fascinating,it is a jump in another time, another way of life.I used the services of "trufflepig" travel agency from Toronto and gave them carte blanche for the whole 2 weeks stay. From hotels to activities, I was completely in their incredibly organised and professional hands. They booked my first 5 days at Riad Farnatchi.As all other riads, it is hidden in a narrow alley behind a nondescript door. But as soon as it opens,you arrive in a beautiful haven of peace and quiet .Elegant and refined down to the tiniest details. But although the Riad's service,rooms ,cuisine , staff and general quietness that you revel in , once inside in the walls the heart and soul of the place is Mme Lynn...A fixture in Marrakesh, she is the one that made the trip. Extremely knowledgeable of all the right people and places , she has completely taken care of me and i felt i was in the best hands possible .Manager of the riad, she is far more and will make your stay an experience that woud not be possible without her knowledge and expertise.The whole week would have been incredible because of Marrakesh but her attention to the guests and her suggestions of all things in the city brought this trip to another level completely.....Feeling like you "belong" in the city, even if for 5 days....I called her, "madame lynn concierge extraordinaire" :)
