The sight of Jacarandas lining the streets, their blossoms creating a carpet of purple below,  is a sight synonymous with Australia.  While almost as iconic as the Eucalypt, Jacarandas aren’t native to Australia, but they do thrive in the warm Aussie climate and feature in many a backyard.

Scotland can be cold and craggy, but it is also home to a vast amount of forest and wildlife and it's scenery is just stunning.  From it's tiny seaside villages to cosmopolitan cities, Scotland has much to offer, as can it's people - who are tough as nails, but can be some of the most warm and hospitable people around.

Something about travelling allows us time and space to reconnect to ourselves. The part of ourselves which gets bogged down with work, stress, chores and routine finally has a chance to emerge, wide eyed and ready for adventure.
 
This is the first of my series of Top Travelling Tips where I will share with you some of the most beautiful places I’ve visited around the world, as well as other handy hints about travelling to each particular region featured.  Today I’ll be sharing my experience in the city of Marrakech in Morroco, Africa.

I’m finally back after my massive adventure away.  Exploring parts of Europe and the UK (and even the very tip of Africa for a few days) was exhilarating, exhausting, inspiring and always interesting.  I’ll be sure to write about some of my top travel experiences over the coming weeks and include some pics too.  But today I wanted to share an experience I had last week on my return.
