This week I’m recovering from a bit of minor surgery and have invited some of my writing friends to share their stories with you. This post comes from Amie O’Shaughnessy, the editor of CiaoBambino.com, a family travel blog and guide to the best kid-friendly hotels around the world. I’ve always dreamed of visiting Morocco and hope that you find these photos as inspiring as I do! Thanks Amie.
I’m still experiencing post-travel bliss after our recent 10-day adventure in Morocco. Despite the significant political turmoil in North Africa, Morocco has remained stable and as a consequence, the flow of tourists is still strong.
This is good news for Moroccans as tourism is an important component of their economy. We quickly discovered that Morocco is a fantastic destination with school-age children as there are countless opportunities for cultural engagement like bartering in a souk and sharing a couscous tagine with a family in their home.
Thanks to the wondrous planning services of Kensington Tours, this was a family trip we’ll talk about forever. From trekking in the High Atlas Mountains to driving through spectacular, exotic scenery to camel riding in the Sahara Desert, there was never a dull moment.
