Photo of Rabat’s famous Kashbah in the heart of the city. I love blue. Blue is my absolute favorite color. The color of the sky on a brilliant September fall day. The color of my husband’s eyes. The color of water. The color of tranquility. For that reason, I took this photo in Rabat of the gorgeous blue hues of the kashbah. What a spectacular place!
Ailsa over at Where’s my backpack has a new travel theme for the week: Secret Places. I found this place driving from Rabat to Casablanca and instantly told the driver to pull over.

Greetings from Rabat….wish you were here! Photo taken from my hotel terrace in Rabat, Morocco April 2011. For some reason, I’m thinking about this very moment right now. I had just finished breakfast on the rooftop terrace and was ready to start my first day in Morocco. What an amazing place!

During a volunteer trip to Morocco, I hired a guide for the day and took a tour of Casablanca. We spent the morning at the Hassan II Mosque and lucked out to be the only people inside it. It was enormous and quite spectacular. It was my first time inside a mosque and shed […]
Greetings from Rabat…wish you were here! Photo taken from hotel rooftop in April 2011 during a volunteer trip to Rabat, Morocco. I was initially hesitant to go to Morocco all by myself to volunteer. I had always wanted to go to Morocco and was close to visiting many times. Yet the moment never seemed to be right and it never happened. Several years before, I even went all the way to the tip of Spain and practically saw Morocco longingly […]
