The actual restaurant where you can have a meal and listen to some piano playing in Casablanca opened in 2004 and was inspired by everyone’s favorite Bogart and Bergman film, Casablanca. And you better believe that this Casablanca fan was not going to… Continue reading Dining at Rick’s Cafe, Casablanca

Your Guide for Visiting Hassan II Mosque, Casablanca

There are certain things about Muslim countries that always hold true: there will be five calls to prayer each day; women will be dressed conservatively, sometimes with only their eyes showing; there will be little alcohol available, and no pork. Oh, and there will be loads of mosques to visit.  Not so in Morocco! An… Continue reading Your Guide for Visiting Hassan II Mosque, Casablanca

Why I Will Not Recommend La Mamounia, Marrakech

This is the single worst hotel experience Steve and I have ever had. You know I like to keep my blog positive, and I get really excited about special experiences when we travel, so we had been looking very forward to our stay at La Mamounia for months.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: Movie Moments in Savannah

How could I possibly go to Savannah during my Year of Movie Moments and not do a post about Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil? I couldn’t!

Uluru

4 Days at Uluru

We loved our trip to Uluru in Australia’s Red Centre!

Four days was enough, but truly we could… Continue reading 4 Days at Uluru
