I was sitting in a coffee shop in Kuala Lumpur in February last year when I met Loukman Nacik, an entrepreneur from Morocco. We instantly hit it off, so much so that I invited him along to drinks with friends the next night at my favourite bar in KL, PS150. Late in the evening after a few glasses of Japanese whisky, the conversation turned to the co-living trend that was starting to take off in the digital nomad community, and what it would take to replicate the offering of Nomad House (and others) to accommodate us and a few other other close friends. At that moment, The Marrakech Project was born.
Back in April I spent the month living in an amazing riad with a bunch of close friends in the centre of the Medina in Marrakech and it was an overwhelmingly positive experience.
