It might not be what you expect, but it’s in these mountains that you can discover the heart, the origins of Moroccan culture.
I’m taking you into the hidden peaks and values just beyond your favorite tourist destinations to escape the crowds and have a travel experience all your own.
In our video on Traveling As An Interracial couple in honor of Loving Day, Michele and I mainly discuss our experiences and social commentary as a whole, mentioning very few places so I wanted to make a list and share with you from BOTH of our experiences.
We are decades away from the 1967 Supreme Court Loving ruling but interracial couples still navigate a few minefields in society. Michele and I are happily in a partnership where we discuss these things rather openly.
