“There’s a strong wind beating my face and blowing my white light scarf, yet I advance all the way to the edge to take a better glimpse of the view. The landscape spreading at our feet is breathtaking; you can see for kilometers ahead only arid hills and small mountains which seem to have been drawn by trembling hands.”
“We make another pit stop to admire an isolated clay village blending perfectly with the hill it stands strong on, but surrounded by scattered greenery. It’s impressive how these people still live in such harsh conditions, in villages built from mud, away from all this century’s commodities.”
Regardless if we’re avid travelers or just taking occasional trips around our hometowns, all of us travel lovers that live to explore and discover new places, we all have that one story that is stuck in the back of our minds and always pops up either to remind us to be humble, to love and respect others, to care about nature and the surroundings, or simply to motivate us to keep on going, no matter what. It’s that kind of story that changes our life and the beautiful thing about it is that it doesn’t necessarily have to be something dramatic; it can be so tiny, yet have a tremendous impact on us.
Every story is important for the individual. Little things we might easily overlook can mean the world to someone else and be life-changing and it’s so inspiring to hear other people’s stories and see what motivates them to be better humans.
Because that’s what it’s all about: to be better. To be more loving, caring, helping, peaceful, motivated. It’s about a positive impact on our lives.

“We are getting nervous as the African soil is appearing below us in our sight, first with its wide deserted lands and then with tiny towns made of mud buildings, blending in perfectly with the color of the land. We’re becoming even more nervous and impatient when the red buildings of Marrakesh are already being distinguishable below us for quite a long time while the plane is flying really low […]”
… but I found myself writing a book.
It all started a few years ago while roadtripping around Morocco with some friends. The whole trip started quite randomly from a very cheap plane ticket bought a few months in advance and then one day we just realized we were landing in Marrakech.
For a whole week, we travelled from Marrakech to Sahara to Fez to Tangier, by car, by bus, by train, by feet… Four friends with tiny backpacks (it was an economy flight and we didn’t have enough money for large luggage…), almost no cash money, and a lot of dreams, hopes, eagerness to discover what this amazing country had to offer us. We bumped into so many random unexpected experiences, a culture so different to what we were used to in our “Western” home countries, that the whole time I kept joking that I was going to write a book about the trip.
And back home, I did it. At first I just wrote the facts to remember them later on, as a form of documenting our experience, but then.. one thing led to another. The next thing you know, I was adding more salt and pepper to the facts, embellishing the descriptions, correcting typos and formatting everything to look like a book…
What can I say then? Stay tuned for more! I’ll be sharing excerpts from the book, more info on my travels, maybe even some giveaways! 🙂
