Kasbah du Toubkal, a moroccan retreat in the Atlas mountains

Rather than join the crowds, escaping for a few days to a quiet place might be what you need to get some rest. I discovered the Kasbah du Toubkal in the 'Travelista' article by Sophy Roberts in the FT week-end. Even though it is only 40 miles from Marrakech, Kasbah this lodge located in the Atlas mountains offering stunning vistas and run by local Berber people feels a world away from everything.
I think mountains convey this feeling, especially when you reach a certain height and the noise from the valley dies down. I experienced that when hiking in the Pyrenees. Responsible Travel offers a detailed review of the Kasbah du Toubkal.

It means that according to April 1st tradition someone hanged a paper fish on your back. Poisson d'Avril could also be a restaurant located in Quebec City and instead of fish, Bea of 'La Tartine Gourmande' offers us offers us a mouthwatering Strawberry Tart.
