The M`Goun Valley

Just a jump over the huge mountain chain from where we live, there lies the valley of Roses – near to Kelaa M’Gouna, at the south bottom of the snowy summits of the High Atlas Mountains.

… Beautiful canyons and river beds, lush green valleys and traditional rammed earth houses, plus the Roses that blossom from mid-April to end of May – A beautiful region great for trekking, even in hot summer months, when you can walk through the clear water of Oued M´goun.

We stayed at this simple yet beautiful guest house of a long ti,e friend: Abdou`s Gîte du Mount M’goun 



On the road again… towards Morocco’s South

ready for a little family trip… heading towards south of Morocco


the road of the thousand Kasbahs, Ouarzazate, to Skoura and direction Tinghir

and into the Saghro-Djebel, between High Atlas and Sahara Desert


enough breaks for the kids, to play and to run around…
before we hit the road again… towards the beautiful valley of Roses…

Treasure Seeker

Becoming a “treasure seeker”, this is my goal.
Instead of being an “inspector of error” who only looks for mistakes and picks out faults in things and people.

Being someone who focuses on the good, the beauty, the positive and the blessings everywhere, this is what I want to be.
Honoring Allah’s gifts in all and everything. Inchaallah.


Beauty is everywhere.
Natural beauty shines forth from every little flower, from the patterns of reflected light on the surface of water, from the quiet strength of old trees.
Nature thrills me, renews and refreshes me. I find relaxation, enjoyment, and healing in the simplest things in life.
As I look with love at nature, I find it easy to look with love at myself.
I am part of nature; thus, I am beautiful in my own unique way.
Wherever I look, I see beauty. Today I resonate with all the beauty in life.

People, like flowers, are all beautiful in their own way and constantly unfolding.
