To fuel both the body and the mind with ideas, I’ve just come back from a week long hiking trip through the High Atlas Mountains with the charity Multiple Sclerosis Ireland and am genuinely extolling the sort of clichés that a country like Morocco inspires in a creative mind.
To me, the place was mysterious, magical and a feast for all the senses! In addition with the two days we spent in Marrakech, these words are fully warranted – the Berber people, landscape, saturated colours, the pride in craft and its inherent ties with design evident in almost every nook and cranny of their buildings both interior and exterior.
Why has it taken so long for me to visit a vibrant country that is drenched in light, colour and pattern? I therefore have to thank MS Ireland, Earth's Edge, our charming guides and of course Annie and Una for being such stoic fundraisers. A week long trip would not have been half as enjoyable but for the company and the well organised adventure that we all so enjoyed!
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves and that will no doubt inspire new collections - Till next time Morocco!! :)
