Bruno and I had loads of tourism plans to break up the monotony and work of our three months in France. We didn’t do a single one of them. Instead, we did something entirely un-nomadic: we fostered a community.

My best travel buddy came to visit me in Morocco for a three part adventure that included backpacking in Marrakech, a homestay with Moroccan friends in Taroudant, and an 8-night camping trip with Bruno, me, and Totoyaya. It was so awesome I can’t decide which part was my favorite!
I didn’t know a thing about Moroccan cuisine – but three months in a country can give you quite an education! In this post, I share my experiences and newfound knowledge of the most famous elements of Moroccan cuisines (tagine, couscous, and mint tea) as well as many lesser-known elements of the culture and fare.
The final post about my parents’ trip to Morocco is all about my dad – his limited travel experience, the way he embraced Morocco, learned to love it, and became a true traveler. Included is a list of subtle differences between Morocco and Canada and a sentimental ode to my parents and the six-week trip we shared.
For two weeks, fourteen members of my family and Bruno’s gathered in Taroudant, Morocco, for a family reunion. Between the delicious meals, the mix of fun and sun at the villa, and our Moroccan adventures (and misadventures), it’s safe to say our family reunion in Taroudant was an unforgettable trip.
