Marrakesh & Essaouria

I really have to be better about posting these blogs in a timely manner! At this point, our Morocco trip was over a month ago, and I’m on my way back from a 4-week long trip to Asia (India, China, Taiwan, and the Philippines – blogposts coming soon, hopefully). I’ve been really lucky to be…

Sahara Desert Tour

From Fes, we were picked up by our guide Omar for a shared tour across the country of Morocco. Our main destination was the Sahara Desert, but we stopped by many other areas along the way since the drive was so long. We stopped almost every hour, driving along the Atlas Mountains. The first day…

Fes & Chefchaouen

My friend M (not husband M) and I just came back from a whirlwind week in Morocco. We were a little nervous going into it because we’d heard a lot of stories of getting lost or getting harassed, especially as two women traveling alone; thankfully, the reports were less intense than expected, but I did…

Yosemite & Point Reyes

Yosemite My hubs insisted on writing the introduction to this blog post, so here it is: Hello there it’s me again a real traveling bob just traveling across the big world aplenty and whoo boy have i ever got a story for you this time when i will write the blog post you will see…

San Francisco

San Francisco For how often I used to visit SF for work, I’ve never spent time being a true tourist. So, when a trip to Yosemite got planned (separate blogpost on that to come), I spent the rest of my downtime visiting some of SF’s most touristy sites (no shame!). It’s always wonderful visiting such…

Istanbul

The actual last post of our honeymoon trip…2 months ago! It’s been a while so I’m going to write a bit less and just have you enjoy these photos – because I was so jetlagged while visiting that I really only experienced the city in a blur of sparkling lights and delicious treats. We stopped…

The Eastern Cape & Panorama Route

On our way back from Kruger National Park, we were able to spend some time on the Panorama Route and various towns in the eastern cape. It was fascinating observing the differences between the Eastern and Western Cape – the Eastern Cape is a bit quieter, and a bit less cosmopolitan. We spent a full…

Mauritius

I run into the awful habit of not being caught up on my blogposts before flying away to my next fun trip, so in these next few days I’m going to finish uploading all our honeymoon pictures & posts before attending a wedding in Florida (+ going to Disney!) next weekend. I’m not quite sure…

The Garden Route, South Africa

Dear reader, It’s Saturday morning in Boston, on March 2nd, and it’s blizzarding outside. Currently I’m regretting my choice of signing up for a FlyWheel class this morning, forcing me to trek out into the snow. So instead, I’m reliving sunnier times in SOUTH AFRICA. The Garden Route was the last leg of our South…

Franschhoek, South Africa

We’d planned on taking a day trip to wine country – mostly Stellenbosch – during our stay in Cape Town, but the friends we made in Kruger convinced us that we needed to stay at least a few days. So, we switched our itinerary and booked a stay at the Franschhoek Country House & Villas ,…
