How did you get involved in travel?
"After finishing my two years of Peace Corps service, I wasn't ready to leave Morocco quite yet. So, I joined Experience Morocco to both share my passion for Morocco and it's culture with the rest of the world while giving back to my adopted country for it's amazing hospitality. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"My favorite experiences are always off-the-beaten track. With Experience Morocco, I recently discovered a little known village of artisans right outside of Marrakech. From pottery, to leather, to textiles, to tilework, every kind of product in the souks of Marrakech could be made in this one little town. It was an incredible experience to meet the rural artisans, tour their workshops, and get up close to their intricate crafts. "
