The Luxury Link Auction package to the Riad Kinza in Marrakech, Morocco proved to be a real bargain and a great base for exotic explorations.

Marignolle Relais & Charme-Florence

For the most part, either a please forgive me or shameful smile or as a last resort, a small consideration in the local currency has managed to right the ship!
One such absurdity is still mentioned periodically at our home, especially when packing for a trip to a new destination.
