Give Rabat A Chance

Morocco /

It is often said that outsiders know your hometown better than you. I’m pretty sure I know my hometown pretty well-ish though. Rabat is the administrative capital of Morocco, and tends to get empty around 10 in the evening. Many think it’s boring city but don’t judge a book by its cover.   What to See […]

Have you ever read a story and wondered what it would be like visiting all the places it mentioned? I surely did.

Other than general knowledge about the West African country, I had no information about the attractions around Burkina Faso.

Essaouira, My One and Only

This is my hiding spot, and please don’t tell anyone.   Since the day I first stepped in Essaouira, I knew it was one of a kind.  Essaouira or Mogador as the Portuguese used to call it, is a small maritime city located in the South of Morocco, 2 hours from Marrakesh.   Historically, Essaouira, once known […]
