Hello dear friends!
Sorry for the short little hiatus, I was actually on vacation the past 8 days. In the beautiful, sunny and warm country of Morocco!
It was my first time in Africa, and it was such an incredible experience. I just didn’t have the time or laptop handy to write anything on here, so hence the silence from my blog. We managed to cover quite a portion of Southern Morocco, 1,740km in total to be precise. We got to see the Atlas mountain range,
got to go camel riding in the Sahara Desert, and camped there for the night
the hustle-bustle of Marrakech (which was exactly how I had pictured Flea Bottom from King’s Landing!)
and the serene, quiet town of Essaouira
I can’t believe how many Game of Thrones connections I made during this trip. Aside from many striking resemblances of the across the narrow sea locations, as well as, King’s Landing I couldn’t help thinking about the books. We also visited a city where scenes from Game of Thrones were actually shot back in 2012:
The good news about my many car rides, train rides, and plane rides was that I was able to keep up with my reading list. So I should be finishing up The Master and Margarita within the next few days. Other goals for this week include finishing/starting the review of One More Thing by B.J. Novak and start-up a Followers’s Bio page.
Basically, I want to get to know the people that are following me better. I have visited your guys’ blogs and you sound really awesome. Anyway, that is work in progress, so while I get that under way I have attached some random photos from my trip below.
Have any of you visited Africa? Or Morocco? Or, have been struck with a place you have visited? 🙂
