Africa My return to Fes, after spending a few days in the lovely Chefchaouen, would be interesting because I would get to experience what Fes was like under more regular circumstances, as opposed my first day in Fes (and Morocco), which was also the first day of Eid al-Adha (the second biggest Islamic holiday, after...

Middle East Turkey is a stunningly beautiful, diverse country full of great history, culture and hospitable, lovely people.  It’s easily in my top favorites of the 65+ countries I’ve traveled to because it has so much to offer.  Turkey is very unique and represents many contradictions- it’s ancient, yet modern; it’s eastern, yet western; and it’s...
