Someone asked me the other day what was the best place I’ve ever visited.
I thought about Paris: when I was 13, I visited Paris and it changed my world view completely. I’ve been there maybe eight times now, and I still absolutely love it. It’s beautiful, it’s iconic, it’s old and new at the same time.
But then I thought about Marrakech, my unlikely home away from home. Djeema El Fna (the main square) is the centre of the world, where all the action is. I love the food, the souks, the riads, wandering aimlessly, getting lost for hours…
But of course there’s London, my adopted city. It’s grey, it’s gritty, but it’s perfect. Everything happens here, and I still choose to live here every day.
Then last year we travelled the Balkans, and visited Jordan, and the year before we were in Iceland and saw the Northern Lights.
I can’t choose, and that’s the best part. There really is a whole world out there… and I’m only getting started.
What’s the best place you’ve ever visited?
