Chefchaouen’s Souk || Morocco Travel Experience

One of the things I notice when I travel is that the best way to REALLY get the feel of a place is to visit their local market. It is here that you will see the locals, see the produce they are selling and see how real life is among the place you are in. It was no different when...

How I pack for 12 days with just a carry-on || Travel Tips

MISIR ÇARŞISI – The Spice Bazaar in Istanbul || Turkey Destination Highlight

A must-see is definitely the Egyptian Spice Bazaar in the Old City of Istanbul. Yes there is the Grand Bazaar that I also say visit to say you visit, but I personally prefer the Spice Bazaar for actual shopping purposes – it’s where the locals shop and have shopped since it...

The Stunning RIAD SALEM in Fes || Morocco Destination Highlight

Nothing could have prepared me for what I saw when we entered Riad Salam in Fes. As we walked down the narrow streets of the medina, the exteriors, as per Moroccan custom, were plain, with no indication of what was inside. Once in a while a nice door, but for the most part,...
