Hanane Hajjia

I was born in Tounate, in the mountains where wild beauty nests, and raised in Fes, one of the pillars of the golden triangle and a place not to miss when heading to Morocco. I developed a love of travel at a young age. I studied sociolinguistics, and pursued my further studies abroad in international relations. Through my studies and travels, I fell in love with travel and communication and believe strongly that both can build peace and tolerance.

How did you get involved in travel?

"At a younger age, my dad used to tell me stories about his trips to different places and unique sites. His stories stimulated my interest in traveling and discovering different cultures. In a way, it bridges cultural gaps and builds understanding. For this reason, I joined Experience Morocco, an organization that serves tolerance and cross cultural communication through travel industry. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I had the opportunity to travel to the mountains of Morocco, to an area called bouadel in tounate region. It was a unique scene that takes your breath away."
