A Week in Morocco, a Story in Photos

on October 15, 2016

I realized  I haven’t posted much about my time in Morocco – which is crazy. It was one of the most colorful, relaxing, adventurous trips I have ever taken! Among other things, it was my first-ever trip to Africa. As I’m trying to stay loyal to 6-year old Sarah’s proudly proclaimed life goal of “visiting every continent,” adding this new continent to the list was a big deal! (V important life goal bc other aged 6 life goal to “drink every type of beer in the world,” is now unachievable as alas I am now gluten free but also beer’s gross??)

I made a video of my trip, but I also have some great stories and advice from our week in Marrakech. I’ll be posting about Morocco over the next few weeks so stay tuned! For now, enjoy these moments from a week in Morocco…
