4 Days in Jersey (UK)

Stay: Apollo Hotel – good for the price. Pretty close to the main bus station in St. Helier (10min walk). Only issue was the hotel was not built for the crazy winds so it got pretty cold in the rooms at night! Day 1 – St. Helier So this was a pretty last minute trip…

2 Days in Amsterdam

Stay: Hotel Luxor – close to the train station, but in the town. Pretty good location and the room was actually pretty quiet We got on the train Friday evening at 6pm to head to Amsterdam! We arrived shortly after 11pm. Thankfully our hotel was a short walk from the train station. In a classic…

2 Days in Marrakech

Stay: Airbnb – private riad – https://abnb.me/iVbXbzsTLkb We arrived in Marrakech around 8:30pm, walked to our riad, and then walked about 1 mile to a grocery store to get food for breakfast for the next few days and dinner for the night. Not the most exciting night, but on the way home I said hello…

Todra Gorge, Dadès Valley, Atlas Studios, & Ksar Ait Ben Haddou

We drove a few hours out of the desert until we reached Todra Gorge. Unforunately it had started raining and none of us packed for rain (I thought Morocco was mostly desert!). We got dropped off though and walked like 10minutes along the road within the Gorge enjoying the views (and rain?) until we were…

Western Sahara

We left Fes around 8am to begin our day of 8hrs of driving! Thankfully we had quite a few stops along the way to break up the journey. First stop was at an Alpine village- “the Switzerland of Morocco”. Having just been to Switzerland I can’t say there was much comparison, but at least we…

1 Day in Fes

Stay: Palais Houyam – very nice place, but not super close to the Medina if you don’t have a guide to take you there! We arrived in Fes late at night and just had a dinner at the hotel since there wasn’t much around us. It was pretty standard meal, but a bit pricey since…

Chefchaouen, Volubilis, & Meknes

Stay: Casa Hassan – Riad right in the main part of the Medina! After arriving in Chefchaouen late last night we decided to get up for breakfast at 8am to have enough time to explore the Blue City and take plenty of photos! Breakfast was like every pastry imaginable and then an omelet…. so pretty…

Getting to Morocco

You might be thinking to yourself “hmm what an odd title for a blog” JUST YOU WAIT. Our journey to getting to Morocco turned out to be a story in itself. We had a direct flight to Morocco booked for Friday. On Wednesday we woke up to our flight getting canceled. NOT GREAT. Thankfully we…

3 Days in St. Andrew’s & Edinburgh

Day 1 – St. Andrew’s I arrived late last night after a nice 5.5hr train ride to Leuchars (closest station to St. Andrew’s). Jack wasn’t feeling well so I ended up taking a bus to the airbnb I was staying at. The next morning I worked for about 3hours before Jack and Dad came to…

3 Days in Luzern & Surrounding Mountains

Stay: Hotel Schlüssel seit 1545 Franziskanerplatz 12, 6003 Luzern Day 1: Luzern We took a train from Interlaken around 11am and took about 2hours to get to Luzern. There were some nice views along the way, but it was a bit cloudy and rainy so we mostly just played lego Harry Potter lol. It was…

4 Days in Interlaken (& surrounding areas)

Stay: Hotel Rössli, Hauptstrasse 10, 3800 Interlaken – nice hotel with breakfast however it would be more convenient to stay closer to Interlaken Ost (East) Station if you can afford it lol Day 1 – Interlaken We arrived into Interlaken about 3pm on the train. Beautiful views coming into Interlaken too 😍 (this is obviously…

Few Hours in Geneva

Stay: ibis budget Geneve Palexpo Aeroport We landed in Geneva around 10pm. I booked a hotel right next to the airport so we just walked over… which was a little more complicated than expected as Googlemaps was telling us to walk on a busy highway ramp to cross the street 😂 NO THANKS! Thankfully we…
