Morocco

Hello guys and gals,

So we left the Spring Break behind. As everyone knows, Spring Breaks are known to be the time to make memories with your friends, take legendary road trips, go on awesome camping trips (which usually is something most Hope College students can’t do – because of Michigan weather) and actually spend time to read books and articles that were not assigned.

To do any of these activities some people take a trip to Florida to walk on its glorious beaches and weather; some people just grab their backpacks and hike on the mountains for days and some just stay home enjoy reading books or watching Netflix under covers.

Well, in my case, I took a trip to Morocco for 3 weeks to walk on its glorious beaches and weather, grabbed my backpack with my friends and did some hiking and sometimes, I just sat in the hotel room and enjoyed reading Coffee with Hemingway by Kirk Curnutt… To be fair, there were other activities that we were involved as a group like riding camels, swimming in Atlantic Ocean, going to hammam, getting henna tattoos, etc.

It was the BEST Spring Break ever.

I mean how can it not be; 17 days, 16 girls, 5 different cities, 1 country.

And loads of food. It was glorious.

Knowing that it is my duty (actually, my pleasure) to share my experience with you, I would like to dedicate this post to my Morocco trip. Time to time I will be talking about what we did there, having flashbacks to the all the great things I did with my lovely friends, but on this post I just would like to share pictures and leave the rest to your imagination…

Hope you enjoy 🙂
