After a long and cold winter, we wanted to head somewhere warm and colorful to start off Spring: Marrakech. After hearing so much about the wonders of the city, we wanted to see it for ourselves.

Bonjour Georges is one of our favorite Instagram accounts going. The person behind it is Cristina, a Brussels-based young mother of 3 adorable kids, with a 4th on the way. She certainly has a way with pictures and words; always honest, often funny, sometimes bittersweet.

Our wanderlust took us to Cap Ferret in France, for a quick escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. This small village is located on the Lège-Cap-Ferret peninsula, at only an hour’s drive from Bordeaux.
