If you have the luxury to hop on a plane you're lucky. And, I was one of the lucky one this year. My exploration of the world had unfortunately been on a bit of a pause, but in 2019, I was able to fly to the other side of the world and land in Africa. This trip was a great reminder that travel is a gift.
Like anyone who returns home after a holiday, I was filled with mixed emotions. Although, it's nice to be home--it was quite fabulous to be away on vacation. A vacation for me, means my senses are in overdrive, my brain is buzzing, every day is different, and filled with new friends and meeting the locals. Now that I'm home, I have the luxury to process what 'went down' so to speak and will blog about it in the future. But in the interim, I will keep it short and sweet. I want to mention one of the things I was reminded of while I was away...I wish everyone had the privilege of being able to travel to a foreign country.
Travel is a Gift
Travel opens your mind and heart in a way that cannot be opened unless you're immersed in a world that's different from the one you were raised in. Morocco is one of the most stunning countries I have ever set foot in and the Moroccan people are friendly and kind. THEY ARE LOVELY. Morocco's population is 99% Muslim.
In today's unfortunate climate of 'them vs us,' travel shows you there is no 'them,' it's 'we.' And, 'we' are all in this world together. I HIGHLY recommend travelling to Morocco, or Central America, or Asia...anywhere that's different from the familiar. I am most grateful to have been able to explore Morocco and so many different pockets of the world. I can hardly wait for the next adventure.
Now, back to processing. Stay tuned for 'what went down.'
