Nature has been proven, time and time again, to reduce depression, anxiety, stress, and anger, as well as generally boost psychological wellbeing. Nature can help make you feel happier and more content as a person, which can improve many areas of your life. This is why I always try to immerse myself in nature when travelling, even when in a big city.
Poland’s 4th largest city was astonishingly beautiful and far exceeded any expectations I could have had. It’s also extremely easy to navigate and excellent for walks with most of the amazing places located next to one another.

Morocco is the most photogenic country I’ve ever been to. I took more photos in Morocco than anywhere else I’ve been. Everything was fascinating: the hanging meat at Ouzoud, the colours, the people, the architecture, the countryside. I was mesmerized by everything! There has never been another country that made me feel this way.
A hot air balloon ride in Marrakech is truly a bucket list experience and something you HAVE to do when visiting Morocco. A hot air balloon ride is one of the most serene, even romantic activities that a traveller can participate in. It immerses you into a different level of perspective that will leave you breathless and in awe. It’s a truly memorable experience as you soar over the foothills of Morocco’s Atlas Mountains on a sunrise hot air balloon ride before touching down for a freshly prepared Berber breakfast.
A lot of people imagine Morocco to be a vast barren desert. However, high in the Atlas Mountains after passing through Berber villages and beautiful scenery is the Ouzoud Falls, the second highest waterfall in Africa and one of the most visited and photographed natural sites in Morocco!
Who has never dreamed of sleeping in the Sahara cosily nestled between sand dunes while looking at the stars? The desert has always inspired me and when I was young, I often imagined myself riding camels between the sand dunes of some faraway country. I dreamt of sleeping under the stars in the desert while drinking tea next to a campfire.
If you’ve ever gone on Pinterest or Instagram, then you know about Morocco’s famous blue city, Chefchaouen, nicknamed the “blue pearl of Morocco.” The entirety of the small city is painted in vivid shades of blue, and, really, it has to be seen to be believed (because yes, it’s even more dazzling than Instagram makes it appear). When when it comes to Chefchaouen, Chaouen for short, it really is no exaggeration to say that every street and alleyway is majestic. Wandering through them, you’ll find that taking a bad photo or forgetting to feel in awe is an impossibility.
I decided to visit Morocco mainly because I had become desperate to travel somewhere (anywhere, really!) after all my plans to visit European destinations went out of the window due to Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns! So out of exasperation and sheer curiosity, I booked a tour to Morocco through Take a Break Travel. However, I do not regret doing so as the moment I arrived I was charmed by the immense cultural richness of the country. It felt like I was travelling in an uncontrolled mix of North Africa, Spain, Portugal, and France. I was thrilled!
Mdina is one of Europe’s finest examples of an ancient walled city and is extraordinary in its mix of medieval and baroque architecture. The mysterious golden-stone Arabic walled city of Mdina crowns a hilltop, and is a world apart from modern Malta.
