Moroccan Spa with Mediteranique

2 Oct

riad-fes_1villadesorangersEvery season has its trends. Also when it comes to travelling. When we think about Autumn we usually picture ourselves in the woods, by the fire place in a cosy rustic retreat or exploring a Central European city. While this sounds completely inviting, sometimes we feel like escaping, experiencing something new and changing your life if only for a few days. All in all, that’s what most of us look for when travelling, isn’t it? Then, why not thinking outside the box?

Moodboard: Morocco

30 Sep

We have to confess that Morocco was not very high on our bucket list. P. visited Casablanca a few years ago and came back with mixed feelings. I’ve never been to Morocco and never gave it a thought, to be honest. But recently, we’ve started reading about new hotel openings, camps in the dessert, crowded markets and lonely walks in the Atlas Mountains… and now we have the urge to visit and get to know Morocco.

Your new best friend

You may or may not have seen this picture in our instagram feed (@theslowpace). It was taken in Treviso airport a week ago. Do you see that little black thing? It’s called Tep and it has officially became our absolute travel essential item.  Tep is a pocket wifi device that gives you the possibility of blogging, sharing your pretty selfies on Instagram or checking your work E-Mails wherever you go.

You just book it, use it and return it. And you pay like a local on more that 100 destinations. When booking, you have to specify the dates and destination of your travel. You will receive the device a couple of days prior to your departure and you have to send it back up to four days after your return. If you live in the UK you can choose one of their drop off spots and just leave it there.

It’s ridiculously easy to use: no set up, no cables, nothing. You turn it on, insert the password in your smartphone, tablet or laptop and you are good to go. Super safe high speed internet. If you are a blogger, you can imagine the endless possibilities of Tep…

From now on Tep will be coming with us in all our trips. We can’t recommend it enough! And just so you know… this is not an sponsored post! We really really loved it! Book it here.

Moodboard: Paris

23 Sep

moodboard_parisNow that Paris Fashion Week is here, we can’t help but remembering March last year, when we pretended we were street style photographers. We had a blast during a long weekend during Paris Fashion week. We stayed at a very pretty boutique hotel in the Latin Quarter, ate the most amazing burgers here, escaped from the FW madness wandering through the beautiful streets and squares of Paris while enjoying the first signs of Spring and we even had a night out!
moodboard_paris_2We would love to come back to Paris in Autumn, though. Crispy mornings with freshly baked croissants, long walks along the Seine… Oh and a day trip to Versailles! We’ve never been there but we sure we would love it! Who else is dreaming about Paris?

Amsterdam: the sunset

11 Sep

Amsterdam_canals_14After a whole day of exploring, we decided to hop on a boat at sunset. It wasn’t planned, it just happened. We were exhausted but we curled up in an almost empty boat and enjoyed a peaceful, quiet cruise that showed us Amsterdam from another angle. The water was calm and we felt that we were the only ones wandering through the canals.

Amsterdam photo diary

9 Sep

Amsterdam_photodiary_21This was our first time in Amsterdam. A weekend, no plans ahead and so many things to do… What did we do? Walk. We didn’t visit any museum and gosh there are museums in Amsterdam!!! But we wanted to see the canals, discover the corners that we had seen so many times in travel magazines, we wanted to be spontaneous and we wanted to say goodbye to Summer. I felt a little bit overwhelmed because I really wanted to make the most of the weekend but also be relaxed and easy going… So I ended up a tad frustrated and anxious. Yep. That’s what happens when I try to be spontaneous. Does that happen to you too? All in all we had a great time, we walked until we were exhausted and we fell in love with Amsterdam. Obviously, we have to come back to visit some museums and eat some stroopwaffel! Here you have some pics and highlights of our weekend if you’d like to see…

The perks of travelling off season

3 Sep

off season
September is one of our favorite months to travel. High season is over and crowds finally return home. The weather is still nice but milder and every landscape seems quieter, waiting for Autumn to arrive. It’s the perfect time to enjoy a relaxed getaway. Travelling off season has only perks in our books. It’s not about the money, though it helps. It’s about the feelings and experiences: the melancholy of a lonely beach in November or the happiness of those warm first rays of sunshine in an empty little cove in April. The silence of a city like Venice in Winter or a sunset all for yourself in otherwise crowded Mykonos. The sensation of plenitude, loneliness, uniqueness. That feeling of being a traveler more than a tourist. Who doesn’t love it? We certainly do… and it’s a feeling that can be addictive. What about you? Are you off season  junkies like us?
