This is my treasure trove. Enjoy.
(p.s. I do not claim all the photographs on this blog as my own. I try my best to give credit where it's due. If you see your photograph and would like me to take it down, please leave me a message.)
Please feel free to ask me anything.
& here's my archive. Enjoy!
"The Cliff of Bandiagara is an outstanding example of a traditional human settlement, representative of the Dogon culture, which has become vulnerable under the impact of tourism. The complex ritual relationships of the Dogon people with the environment include the use of curative and medicinal wild plants and the sacred associations with pale fox, jackal and crocodile.” — unesco.org

Sunset in Erg Chebbi, Morocco
I’m heading to Morocco at the end of February for a week! When I saw airfare for around $400, I couldn’t resist. I’ve been doing some research in the last few days — where to go, what to eat, what to do, how to get around, etc. Erg Chebbi was something a friend said is a must-do, hopefully we’ll find a way to include it in our itinerary.
Airfares are still $375 to $450 on Iberia.com. If you don’t mind the non-stop flights you can probably find something from New York that gets you there in 13 hours, as opposed the normal 8-hour flight, for half the price. If you’re interested, start searching!
In the mean time, happy travels!

"For many travellers, Morocco might just be a short hop away by ferry or by one of the myriad budget airlines from Spain, but it’s a much further distance to travel culturally. The regular certainties of Europe are suddenly swept away by the arrival in full technicolour of Africa and Islam. It’s a complete sensory overload." — Lonely Planet
I’m always on the look out for travel information related to Morocco. As the country bridging Africa and Europe, I imagine her to be a bottomless treasure cave waiting to be explored. There will be combinations of colors, tastes, and scents that I never imagined were possible. And then she will pull something else out of her sleeve to surprise me. One day soon, I’ll make my way there.
In the mean time, I will just live vicariously through travel articles! Here’s NYTimes’ 36 Hours in Marrakesh.
