It's been a long couple of years with the thought of travel feeling like a distant memory, that feeling of elation once the booking confirmation is received and planning your itinerary, filling your days with restaurants, shops, beaches, breath taking views you've always wanted to see.
At Barefoot Gypsy, our homewares and furniture unearth the intersection of travel and design so, with many beautiful countries finally opening up again, we thought we'd share with you some of our favourite destinations.
Morocco is best known for its souks (markets) and 'Souk Semmarine' is the biggest of them all. Lose yourself amongst the moroccan rugs (our favourite), leather pieces, silverware and crockery of all shapes, sizes and colours.
Bold and beautiful, the decades old buildings have been maintained to stand the test of time. Feast your eyes on the intricate details, the tile arrangements and the history that encapsulates Morocco's vibrant soul.
From the holy sites of Sultanahmet, the high fashion of Nişantaşı, the vibrant cafe society of Kadıköy and the football-loving streets of Beşiktaş, it’s easy to see why travelers say that Istanbul isn’t just one city, but multiple cities within one.
When travelling to Turkey, this must be on your itinerary: The hot air balloon over the lunar landscape of Cappadocia. Hop into your basket and join the hosts of brightly hued balloons that float above the region's volcanic spires and honeycombed hills. A truly breathtaking experience you will remember forever.
Infused with ancient mythology, history and art, Greece is made up of a series of idyllic islands that are surrounded by jet blue seas and covered in dainty white buildings.
Santorini, Greece's capital is also known as the island of Thira. Walking around the island gives you the chance to take in all the spectacular architecture and landscape which is formed by a volcanic crater, so you can expect some of the most spectacular views in all of Greece.
So what are you waiting for? If recent times have taught us anything, it's to book that holiday, tick off your bucket list & awaken your gypsy soul.
