A Week in Madeira

Stayed in two locations: 1. Hotel Madeira PanorĂ¢mico – nice views but pretty far from Funchal center. There is a shuttle that will take you to the center though 2. Airbnb- https://abnb.me/EyKXde9lEpb – really good location with parking. 10min walk to town! Definitely recommend Day 1 – Funchal It was an early wake up call…

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…

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…

Papallataca Hot Springs

The place was just a tiny little kitchen with…

5 Day Garden Route Tour

2 Days in Stockholm

Someone please inform me how they are allowed to classify that as “Stockholm”. Thankfully, the commuter bus into the city waited for our…
