It's that time again.
Lost & Found Marrakech 2018 technically launched last week but before I could make the initial announcement to my email subscribers last Friday, MY FIRST TRIP WAS ALMOST SOLD--meaning there was just one space left. And by the time my email landed in everyone's inbox at 6am, that last spot had been taken overnight!
So my initial retreat is now FULLY BOOKED & CLOSED. JUST LIKE THAT. But don't cry--there's still good news.
I got so much interest from that email that I'm actually launching A SECOND RETREAT from April 10-15, 2018.And once again, there's only one space left.
Could it be for you? Are you the one??
I created Lost & Found Marrakech to not only be a pause & reset for other independent, adventurous, like-minded women with a love for travel but....to also hold space for them to connect back to themselves. For you to connect back to yourself. To experience what I consider to be the best part of solo travel--they joy if immersing yourself in a totally new environment & letting go of who you think you are, to learn more about who you can become.
And what better place to do that then halfway around the world, in Africa??
I first traveled to Marrakech last year & my experience in that ancient city was beyond anything I could articulate--the landscape, the architecture, the history, the culture, the people the food....oh, the food. I came back smitten & so did the 6 women who attended that first retreat. Here's what one of them had to say:
My biggest concern about investing in the Lost & Found Marrakech experience was traveling by myself to a destination when I wasn't close to the other participants. I wasn't sure if my personality would fit in & if I'd feel alone & bored throughout my stay. Instead, the moment I met the other women on the trip we connected as if we'd known each other for years! I honestly made lifelong friends on this trip and we shared & connected like family. Totally unexpected bonus!
The April 10-15, 2018 retreat includes:
- 5 nights/6 days accommodation in a traditional Moroccan riad
- Daily breakfast featuring tea, fresh breads, eggs, honey, jams, yoghurt & specialty Moroccan dishes

Here's how to know if this is right for you!
You're an:adventurous woman who loves to explore new cultures & welcomes the opportunity to learn about new lands, languages & ways of life. Someone who enjoys trying new foods. A woman who enjoys pushing the boundaries of her own comfort zone & values EXPERIENCES above THINGS. A woman who doesn't need to depend on a tour guide & relishes charting her own path...but also enjoys having a community forged by deeper connections. If you're someone who doesn't take herself too seriously, loves to laugh, is easy-going & enjoys meeting new people, then you're the type of woman I'm looking for.And you're gonna love this trip.
This trip is not right for the:High maintenance women. Picky eaters. Women who can't bare to be unplugged from WIFI. Those who expect to be hand-held, managed, catered to, are afraid to be by themselves, don't like to walk or get annoyed around non-English speakers. If you have a Type A personality, are over dramatic (you KNOW if this is you), or expect a very Western experience akin to staying in a traditional hotel...this isn't the trip for you!
So if you're reading this & thinking, "I'm the one she's waiting for!", just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org & we'll get you signed up!
Marrakech is unlike anything you've seen before but don't take my word for it...come see for yourself.
