Three Things I Learned About Morocco


Visiting Morocco has definitely left an impression, not only in my head, but also my heart. I had the opportunity to visit places I have only dreamed about, and experience a country that at times felt otherworldly. I learned so much in such a short amount of time, I can’t wait to have the opportunity to go back and explore more of this beautiful country.

Three Things I’m Happy I Packed

When we were packing for our six-month adventure, I remember feeling mildly overwhelmed. Going from winter in Canada, to the warmth of the Caribbean, followed by a European spring, and hopefully, what will turn out to be a beautiful and hot European summer.

I did see it last time, however, only the exterior and only for a brief moment during our “free” walking tour of the city. Now it was time to get inside. View Post
