  1. I have always loved the colors and patterns stemming from Marocco, but I haven’t had the fortune to visit it yet. Maybe when this pandemic is over it’s time to check that box. The pictures are amazing. I can’t believe how much there’s to experience and discover. I feel that 12 days might not be enough. Do you know if there are any longer tours available?
