On Top Of The Ouzoud Waterfall

I think my present situation demands an update and a little personal postcard from my vacation in Marrakech. We arrived Saturday and it already feels like we’ve been widely around town. Marrakech is such a beautiful and breathtaking city that has a lot to offer and areas to explore. I love the Moroccan cuisine and the warm weather – it’s a bit too hot actually – the temperature has so far peaked at 41 degrees in the shade and sweat pours down of me, not kidding.

We’ve booked ourselves into 5 hotels/riads during our stay here in the northern Africa. The first week we stay at Riad Chamali, an affordable, cozy and charming riad near Bahia Palaces, which is run by the sweetest people. Subsequently, we’re turning our noses against the Atlas Mountains with a 400 km. drive ahead of us. We’re going to stay at 2 different hotels for a total of 4 days before we’ll head back to Marrakech – halfway we’ll stop in the small village, Aït Ben Haddou, where we’ve booked a room at an authentic ksar on the outskirts of the village, which I’m looking very much forward to.

I’ve already shot a lot of great content for By Pankalla and Instagram which will be posted during and after our vacation here in Morocco. In the meantime I hope you guys want to follow along this amazing journey of ours on the social media; you can, as always, find me on Instagram (@patrickpankalla), SnapChat (@pankalla) and Shots (@patrickpankalla)!


A riad is a traditional house/building with a courtyard, which the house/building encircles.The word ‘Riad’ comes from the Arabic language and means ‘garden’ in English.

Ksar is the Arabic word for “castle” and typically consist of a variety of small houses/buildings.
