Destination: Sahara Desert, Morocco

Riding camels at sunrise (May 2017).

During my five-night stay in Marrakesh, I also took an overnight tour out into the Sahara desert, a geographical spread of northern Africa which covers an area as large as the United States itself (incredible!). Visiting the Sahara desert is a very-popular, touristy thing to do, but since I’d never been there before, I wanted to experience it while in Morocco. Plus, I had the strong desire to ride a camel over the sand dunes, so why not?

Destination: Marrakesh, Morocco (Part 2)

Inside the Bahia Palace (May 2017).

While visiting Marrakesh in early May, I had also booked a one-night Sahara desert tour in the middle of my five-night stay in the Moroccan capital (more on that later). The desert tour happened during my third night, and upon returning to Marrakesh the following day, I checked in once more into the same hostel for an extra two nights.

Destination: Marrakesh, Morocco (Part 1)

Gardens near the Koutoubia Mosque (May 2017).


For the longest time, Morocco had been on my travel bucket list. Ever since February of my first year teaching in France, I saw other assistant(e)s’ beautiful photos of the country’s during the winter vacances, and at that point, I knew that I wanted to go. I didn’t end up going that first year, but made it a goal my second year to visit.

Blue Sky Tag!

A while back, Rosie from La Grenouille Anglaise nominated me for the “Blue Sky Tag,” which I’m honored to accept. This is the second nomination I’ve received from her: Rosie is nothing short of amazing with her blog posts about her life and travels in the UK and France, as well as drool-worthy baking recipes that I’ve yet to try my hand at. Thanks again for the nomination!

Life Update #4 (Back Home in the States!)

Yes, I’m back!

After an eleven-hour direct flight on Saturday, I have finally returned to Los Angeles. It’s been eight months away and while I had a blast in France, I’m also glad to *finally* be home.

Destination: Krakow, Poland


My trip to Poland finally came to an end in Krakow (or “Kraków”). Located in the south, it’s a vibrant city known for being an economic and cultural hub of the country, with its historic center boasting plenty of well-preserved churches and its famous Wawel Castle. It was beautiful and lively, and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to wrap up my Polish travels.
