2018 also seemed to be the year of queueing things up for the rest of my life. So what’s next?
If the medina and riads are an onslaught of colors, sights and sounds, Sahrai filters them through a GOOPish lens.
This time, I’m discussing the places that should be on your 2019 bucket list along with some of my favorite nomadic women. The fun twist this time around: we’re talking USA!

Most tourists skip Fez, Morocco’s oldest city. That’s a big mistake.
Here are some of the best cemeteries in the world that draw thousands and in some cases millions of visitors each year, whether or not they have loved ones buried there!
Exploring Caravaggio’s Rome with Roma Experience Tours
I absolutely love a sweet and savory tagine. One of my mom and my favorite places in the city is a Moroccan restaurant and despite wanting to try other things on the menu, I never can resist the lamb tagine with apricots and dates. So, when Dar 7 Louyat offered Michele and me a traditional Moroccan cooking lesson as part of our stay we jumped at the opportunity. It’s definitely fun to explore a market in a new city but the be immersed in a local experience like we were when shopping with Naima for our tagine ingredients, gave us a whole other view of the souk. We were apart of it! Check out my latest YouTube video to find out how we made this delicious meal of a beef tagine, fava bean soup, salad and a delicious mashed pepper and eggplant blend. After our lesson, they plated it all beautiful for a romantic meal in the atrium. What a unique experience. Despite the language barrier, food brings everyone together. We cooked, laughed, bonded and cried (those onions!) …
