Moroccan Rainbow – Final Thoughts

I love these pants…they are the best…you’ve seen tons of pictures with me […]

Culural Trekking in Morocco
We spent our first week in Morocco mainly enjoying the country side. We had a couple of days in Marrakech to look around the medina (old neighborhood) and the souks – it was nice, but not a place I would go back to. I have mainly enjoyed getting out of the bigger cities with crowds […]
