Traveling in Morocco

I traveled to Morocco to participate in a journalism program. The program itself was five weeks long, and I did some exploring when I could. I enjoyed Morocco so much I extended my stay.

On the third day of our Toubkal expedition we finally descend the mountain and go back home. It was a long and rewarding journey.

After our adventure in the Sahara desert, we set out to climb Toubkal, the tallest mountain peak in North Africa (13,671 ft). Our van picked us up at 11pm, we arrived at 5:30am, and immediately began hiking.

On our last day in the Sahara we got up early. A stimulating SUV tour is followed by the long road home.

Episode Thirty-Two: Self-Injection

In Vienna, Austria. I was accepted into a journalism program in Morocco, and when I realized I needed a couple vaccines, I tried to find a clinic that would offer them. It was more difficult than I imagined, and the result was me playing doctor on myself in a hostel bathroom.
