• How to Spend 10 Days in Morocco

    One of our final trips before COVID shut down the world was to Morocco. We spent about 10 days in Morocco in February 2020 and it was one of the best parts of our year living abroad – a big change from our travels through Europe. Morocco is a beautiful country, with something for everyone, and completely different vibes depending on where in the small country you find yourself.  Here’s my itinerary for spending 10 days in Morocco! This map was made with Wanderlog, a road trip planner Chefchaouen (2-3 days) We started our time in Morocco with a few days in Chefchaouen. Chefchaouen, also known as Morocco’s Blue City,…

  • A Night in the Agafay Desert

    Back in February, Colin and I visited Morocco. After admiring the beautiful blue city of Chefchaouen, getting lost in the Fes medina, and seeing the palaces of Marrakech, we knew we wanted to end our trip with something cool and relaxing: A night in the Agafay Desert. Never heard of the Agafay Desert? That’s okay, neither had I. Most visitors to Morocco head east to the much more well known Sahara Desert. Unfortunately, the Sahara Desert is quite far from the main cities of Morocco. From where we were in Marrakech, it would take us two days to get out to the Sahara. So instead of spending long hours in…

  • The Beautiful Palaces of Marrakech, Morocco

    Marrakech was our final stop during our time in Morocco in February. And, to be honest, I didn’t love it. I thought the Fes medina was better than the Marrakech one and appreciated the vibes and architecture of Chefchaouen more. But I completely changed my tune when we visited the palaces of Marrakech. The first site we visited in Marrakech was Jardin Majorelle, also known as the Yves Saint Laurent garden after the designer bought and restored it in the 1980s. We walked about 45 minutes to get there and then stood in line in the hot sun for another 45 minutes. After paying $10 to get in, I was…

  • A Virtual Tour through Fes, Morocco

    Take a virtual tour through Fes, Morocco with me! You may not be able to travel to Morocco right now but you can still enjoy a virtual tour through photos and stories that will (hopefully!) inspire a future trip. Colin and I visited Fes in Morocco back in February. I really enjoyed our entire trip to Morocco and Fes was certainly a highlight. In order to best explore Fes and the dizzying alleys of the medina, we signed up for a guided walking tour. We ended up on a six hour private tour with an awesome guide for just $25 each! Before I lead you around Fes, I’ll start with…

    18 Photos that Will Make You Fall in Love with Chefchaouen, Morocco

    When we were first planning our trip to Morocco, I didn’t think we’d have time to make it all the way to Chefchaouen. It was far away from where we were flying into, and the only real reason I wanted to go there was to take a cool picture in the blue city. But after our travel plans changed and we ended up booking a ferry from Europe to Africa (so cool!), Chefchaouen became an easy addition to the itinerary. And I’m so glad it did because it was one of my favourite stops in Morocco! Chefchaouen, in Morocco’s northwest, is best known as the blue city. Almost all the…

  • 75 Questions Every Traveller Should Answer

    I’m going to keep things short and sweet because we have a lot of questions to get to! Read on for 75 questions every traveller should answer. I’ve left my answers below but would love to hear yours! What’s your favourite place so far? This is one of the toughest questions every traveller should answer. How do you pick just one?

  • How to Travel While Going to School Full Time

    Is it possible to travel while going to school full time? Absolutely! I’ve had the privilege of traveling my entire life. In fact, I moved across the country before I was a year old. And I grew up going on family vacations to Florida and the Caribbean. I even went to the Philippines and Korea with family friends when I was just 13. But it wasn’t until I got to university that travel went from an annual vacation with my family to a very integral part of my life. Travel was my escape. It was my journey out of my dorm room and into the world. And I couldn’t get…

  • My Dream Travel Bucket List

    To be clear, everywhere is my dream travel bucket list. The entire world would make my list because there are very few places I wouldn’t want to go (and those few are just due to safety concerns). But the following places are at the top of my travel bucket list. These are the places I have never been to and if I had the time and the money, I’d be booking a flight to these places first. I’ve listed these places by continent, with no definite ranking because it’s just too hard to choose. And because I’m really terrible at making decisions, I even included some honourable mentions. Here we…

  • 5 Cities I Can’t Wait to Visit Again

    So far, I’ve lived, traveled, visited, volunteered or studied in 33 countries around the world and even more cities. I’ve had amazing experiences in every place that I’ve been. But there are some that I just can’t wait to visit again! These are the places that put a smile on my face when I think about them. They’re places where I have made some amazing memories. They’re places that I haven’t been to in a while and where I may have left something undiscovered. Usually, when I’m looking for flight deals or planning future trips, I’m primarily looking to go to places I’ve never been before. But I would make…
