Playing I spy in the Majorelle Gardens, Marrakech

While in Marrakech not long ago we scoured TripAdvisor for recommendations on the best things to see in the city. We dined at a fancy restaurant (here) and road camels in the Sahara (here), but we also made time for Louis Majorelle’s (later Yves St. Laurent’s) beautiful Majorelle Gardens. Really, check out the TripAdvisor reviews here, people just adore this place.
We definitely loved this little escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. More importantly though, the gorgeous gardens coupled with vibrant terra cotta plants and benches made for the PERFECT I Spy game. Yes, I’m serious.There are colors, smells and textures everywhere, and we’re (very) young at heart.

I Spy, something YELLOW:

Louis Majorelle’s patented blue paint is everywhere. A vibrant, rich, hue is actually incredibly costly to purchase. If you’d like your own little piece of Majorelle Bleu, Yves St. Laurent sells .33 oz for $27, in the form of nail polish.
Something CURVED:
These were a bit more of a stretch, Dan wasn’t pleased.
Something CREEPY:
Oh, rude, Dan! I’m no creep!
Something SPIKEY:
Something TEAL:

(double points for me for wearing a teal scarf!)

Something ORANGE:
Something PURPLE:
Something SOFT:
Dan, the apparent strict game warden, also found these palm leaves a stretch as being soft but my argument was that they looked like feathers from down below, no? Also, now looking back at these pictures, the clouds look pretty darn soft too. So there.
Something CUTE:

(^Pardon my gush, we literally JUST got married.)

I know we’re not the only ones to play kid-games on travel. What do you like to play?
