It took us nine hours to arrive in Tangier from Marrakech. But it wasn't nearly as bad as you think.

Moroccan Desert Tour, Part I: Landmarks in the Desert

When the opportunity arose to tour the Sahara, I jumped at it. Over a period of three days I visited UNESCO Heritage Sites, natural wonders, Berber villages, and glorious sand dunes. I broke up this trip into two posts, beginning with the desert landmarks.

Hiking the High Atlas: Mount Toubkal, Mint Tea, and Berber Taxis

Hiking Mount Toubkal has been one of my ultimate travel dreams. The second-highest summit in Africa (Mount Kilimanjaro takes the lead), it's situated in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. More specifically, it's in the Imlil Valley, about two-and-a-half hours away from Marrakech.

Life Update

Hey everyone!

I feel horrible about this unplanned break. I didn't realize how much work and planning would go into my mom's trip, so that's been preoccupying me. But at least we're now together and having the time of our lives!

Keep an eye out for my upcoming posts about my recent trips to Morocco, Spain, the Brittany region of France, and more. For now, check out this post I wrote for Dame Traveler about my favorite French city--Tours!

Thanks so much for your understanding and, as always, for your continued support. See you all soon!

Berlin, Germany

Seeing that I love World War II and Cold War history, a trip to Berlin was necessary--especially after I found 98€ round-trip airfare.

Nice, France

My friends have always raved about Nice, and now I see why. Even though my friend Rachel and I went in January, it was still a quintessential beach city with Provençal flair--and I wouldn't have had it any other way.
