Fez, Morocco: Adventure Day 2 (kind of)

It was another rough night of sleep in Fez! Not surprisingly though The local leather cobbler is right next door. He bangs always with his wooden mallet till 11:30. Call to prayer is at 5am, the roosters, and local large dog, start making a racket around 4am. It’s extremely loud in this Medina. L and […]

Fez, Morocco: Adventure Day (kind of)

Well last night was a bust as well! I woke up with L in my bed, and could hear talking downstairs. I found Ty in the bathroom with R. He had made her a nest of pillows and blankets by the toilet. They were FaceTiming my mom for support. R was a mess. She hadn’t […]

Marrakech, Morocco: Adventure Day 2

We got up bright and early with an alarm today. So we could make it to our cooking class by 9am. We walked through some very quiet streets to get to the main square. It was delightful not to be run down by motorcycles every few minutes. We bought some fresh juice in the square. […]

Marrakesh, Morocco: Adventure Day 1

Everyone slept in a bit this morning. We had no agenda for the day. It was nice not to be rushing out the door. We started some laundry before heading out to get some breakfast. Walking through these streets is quite the experience. Once again, thanks to Ty’s maps.me app we’re not the bumbling tourists […]

Ait Ben Haddou to Sahara Desert, Morocco: Adventure Day (Part 2)

We met our guide for the camel excursion in a local gas station and he drove us out of Zagora into the desert right to camp. We were a bit confused since we thought we were riding the camels to camp but he soon explained that when the camels arrived with the other group of […]

Ait Ben Hadou to Sahara Desert, Morocco: Adventure Day (Part 1)

It’s a beautiful ancient village, that about 15 families still live in, approximately 75 people. Five years ago a bridge was put in, so that when the rains […]

Brussels, Belgium to Ait Ben Hadou, Morocco: Travel Day

Ty has been eager to get to Morocco for a couple of years. So we planned 9 days of exploring in Morocco this year. Leaving Brussels was relatively smooth. – Security was a breeze. Why can’t we get family lanes in the US?! We enjoyed a snack break in the lounge before getting on our […]

Bruges, Belgium: Adventure Day

So we typically like 3 days in a city, anything after that we usually have too much down time. Knowing this, Ty found us cheap train tickets to Bruges, for the day. It’s apparently the “Venice of Belgium” 🙂 To us, it’s what we think Amsterdam will look like. It was beautiful, everywhere you turned! […]

Brussels, Belgium: Adventure Day 2

So we spent a bit of a chilly night in the apartment. I slept in my down vest for part of the night. Ty quickly realized we had no hot water, which is everything for this place! No hot water means, no heat in the radiators. So it was about 30 degrees outside and we […]

Brussels, Belgium: Adventure Day

Another day of everyone awake by 6am. Oh well, it’s better than when L woke us all up by 2:30am. The nice thing about vacation is we all just take our time getting up. Reading books in bed, snuggling under covers, maybe watching a travel show. I love vacation mornings like this! Ty is our […]
