How did you get involved in travel?
"My passion for travel started at an early age, especially when I went on my first trip with my familly to explore new places in the High Atlas Mountains, new people, and new adventures. Since then, traveling becomes a sort of inspiration to me and fills me with a sense of enthusiasm to gain essential knowledge about this field. Traveling, for me, is like meditation; it makes my mind relaxed and motivates me to learn and discover new things. Looking at huge mountains, diving into gorgeous sceneries, enjoying glorious food give me a pleasure that is incomparable to any other joy."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"The most unforgettable experience I have ever had was climbing the highest peak in North Africa "Mount Toubkal" (4167m).
I was 18 years old when I had such an incredible experience climbing this gorgeous summit with the help of our mountain guide, my brother, who kept encouraging me to keep going until we reached the peak. The hike to the top was very tough but it was so worth it when we got there, observing the beauty of the snow-capped mountain, and enjoying beautiful landscapes. That adventure motivated me to take other trips and discover other places that are worth visiting in Morocco."
