The Experience
Join Alex Elle and The Runaway for a week of self-care, sisterhood, and writing against the beautiful backdrop of Marrakech, Morocco. Expect to dive into the practice of positive self-talk, affirmation creation, and cultivating healthy ways to evolve. Our intimate workshops will be fun, hands-on, and rooted in self-celebration and happiness!
During this curated 7 day, 6 night journey, you'll be dazzled by winding alleyways, endless palm groves, and intricately handcrafted design. You'll shop for treasures in the maze of the souks, learn to cook local dishes with freshly picked produce, bike ride through the surrounding villages, experience the art, opulent architecture, and more.

What guests are saying
Krystal
"It was amazing to be on the trip with a group of women who were on the same vibe and supported each other's journey. Jeff and Kalisa curated a one-of-a-kind experience. I'm glad this was my first adult solo trip and I look forward to future trips with The Runaway Experience."
Jaha
"Kalisa and Jeff were knowledgeable, helpful, and fun. They made me feel like I was traveling with family. They provided a ton of info beforehand, and even hopped on a call with each guest to answer all of our questions. The trip was well-organized and well-executed, right down to the last detail."
Aline
