I love everything about traveling, including the journey to get to where I'm going. My trip to Morocco
started with a flight from Seattle to Frankfurt and something I have always enjoyed about flying is looking out the window. For me it's better than tv, as I flew over the cascades and the Canadian Rockies I couldn't help but dream about climbing all the great peaks I saw. Then I was lucky enough to watch an electric sunrise over Iceland.
Once I landed in Frankfurt I decided to make the most of my layover and take the train into the city to explore. But before I did anything I got myself a nice big pretzel and that hit the spot after my long flight. In Frankfurt I found some beautiful churches, nice parks and some pretty incredible architecture. Unfortunately I didn't have much time to explore more, but nonetheless spending half the day in Germany was a big bonus.
Flying into Casablanca I caught the end of the sunset and it set the tone for a great trip. I also got to test out my Steripen
at a random gas station in the middle of the desert. The sink said the water was not safe to drink, but I came prepared to treat and carry my own water with my SteriPen and Klean Kanteen TAP bottle

As I write this I am taking in the silhouette of the desert under the moonlight and rocking out to Arabic music with our driver! It is quite a fun ride and I can't wait to get to Fes.
I've already had all these great experiences and I haven't even gotten to my destination yet! Just another perk of traveling!
Tomorrow is going to be a big day as I am meeting with the ministry of Moroccan tourism and taking a city tour of Fes. I am looking forward to returning to the Medina and seeing, smelling and hearing all the unusual stuff that you would probably never find at a market in the States.
