In case you missed our big news this morning, Spot is launching in Europe, and adding thousands of new spots in over 50 cities. 🤗 First up? London! To celebrate, we're hosting a takeover by traveler @taylor_fuller, who will be sharing some of her favorite spots in London. Here's the first! "If you’re looking for a splash of color in London, you have to check out Shoreditch. Located in East London, this hipster paradise is filled with awesome murals and street art, delicious and trendy bars and restaurants, and really cool markets that are bustling on the weekends."

More and more people are hearing about the founder of @ayasmarrakech, up-and-coming Moroccan fashion designer Nawal El Hariti. A few years ago I had a #wowexperience in her studio: I got to design my own kaftan. We brainstormed ideas in her boutique, took measurements and set out to the souk to shop for fabrics. Then we went back to her studio for a custom fitting and a home-cooked lunch of Moroccan mezzes, tagines, and sweets. A couple of days later, the new outfit was delivered to my hotel in time for my flight home! I ended up with much more than a custom-made silk jacket. I gained a vivid understanding of what it’s like to be a young female entrepreneur in an ancient male-dominated culture. I left Morocco not just with a one-of-a-kind souvenir but with a new friend. I loved getting to know Nawal and hearing what life is like for a woman business owner in Morocco. She is that rare example of a successful self-made female entrepreneur in a Muslim society. And if you’re wondering whether it’s worth missing other things in Marrakech to carve out half a day for this experience, I would tell you that this experience is a microcosm of Marrakech. You get that heady combination of the elements that define the city—ancient tradition, modern decadence, over-the-top hospitality, magical ambience—viewed through the lens of a local.
