We're from Hanover, Ontario Canada

We enjoy all kinds of trips, some to enjoy and relax then others to explore and learn the culture!

We have our 'BUCKET LIST" and over the past few years we've been fortunate enough to begin to see some of the world.

Traveling is AMAZING!

Africa » Morocco » Grand Casablanca » Casablanca November 12th 2010

Day 10 Back to Casablanca!!! It's now just 17 of us, the British have parted ways from our group as they fly home from Marrakesh. We arrive at the Ibis City Centre Hotel, and the day is a short one. We had a guided tour of the city and saw the second largest Mosque-Mosque Hassan II, and relaxed at the hotel. The tour had come to an end and we enjoyed every bit that we could. To summarize, we enjoyed this trip immensely and would recommend Morocco to any that have the sense of adventure in them. It was amazing to see such a way of life but we’re both happy to return home to our family and friends. Travelling allows you to learn so much and appreciate what you have. Day 11 Home time...a short ... read more

Africa » Morocco » Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz » Marrakech November 12th 2010

Day 9 We were up early and had a great breakfast at the hotel. This hotel seems very upscale compared to some of the others but I must say it doesn't have the character that some of the others did. Like in Erfoud the grounds keeper took us up on the roof and told us how the stars are so amazing from this view, it wasn't like that at this hotel, minus the warmth but it is beautiful. We headed out with the group for a morning tour of Marrakesh. We went to see the Koutoubia Mosque and we stopped at a very touristy spice shop. The ladies there were very informative but we didn’t buy anything there. We ended the tour in the big square and headed out to stroll around. We were now at ... read more

Day 8 Off to Marrakesh today but first a couple stops along the way. We stopped just moments away from our hotel and had a guided tour of our first Kasbah, it was called Kasbah Taourirt. Just after that Kasbah we stopped at one of the finest Kasbahs in Morocco, it's called Ait Benhaddou, this is where Lawrence of Arabia was filmed. Pretty amazing buildings, we took a few pictures, and enjoyed the shops. Back on the road we drove through the Draa Valley, the scenery was incredible. Now when we were in the mountains there wasn't too many choices for lunch, amazingly enough being with our tour we had a great little spot that made us all fresh subs....and we had a beautiful view. Back on the road we were almost there!! (Thank god) we ... read more

Africa » Morocco » Souss-Massa-Draâ » Ouarzazate November 12th 2010

Day 7 We left behind Erfoud today and headed towards Ouarzazate, it's pronounced almost like 'what was that' We've been joking about it for a bit now, we've been told we're not far from Tim buck We had a beautiful spot for lunch in the Dades Valley, there was a neat restaurant right in the middle of the Gorges of the Dades, and we all walked over wooden planks to cross over the river to be able to enter into the restaurant. The views were very impressive....and the temperature was a bit chilly, 15 degrees maybe. Along our way we stopped a few times for photos, one of them was at a small village where they had many hand dug wells. They are all about 70 feet deep. The town had with a few locals ... read more

Day 6 We started our morning with a tour of a fossil mining company. We saw some lovely pieces of work that dates back some 200, 000, 00 years ago. It was a short visit then we met our guide for the morning. We travelled to a nearby village called Risanni, where we left the bus behind and went for a very interesting walk through their town market. What a way of life, and to see what these people do 3 times a week what pretty crazy. The town people would be buying all of their produce for the next couple days, many don't have hydro so no fridges for them to keep much more than a couple days worth of food. The fresh smells of the mint for sales was great, I purchased a stone ... read more

Day 5 With an early start after our late night we headed off out of Fez. Our first stop was in a wee town Ifrane. It was up in the middle Atlas Mountains....the temperature really dropped, about 2 degrees Celsius. Very pretty town, looked much like we were in Switzerland, as it should it was built by the French and the Swiss. Just down the road we saw a small ski resort that their King and his family like to frequent. Continuing onward we left behind the cedar forests of the middle Atlas Mountains and our views became much similar to the Grand Canyon with the snow capped High Atlas Mountains in the distance. The forests of palm trees in the oasis became more frequent and this was a moment we both knew we were ... read more

Day 4 We started our day with breakfast at the hotel, then headed out on the bus and met up with our tour guide, Mohamed. In Morocco every first born son to a family get names Mohamed....we’ve now met a few. He took us to see the Royal Palace entrance; there are seven doors, one for each day of the week. We walked through the upper class level Jewish section, from the outside they didn't look very special but we were told each would be worth well over a million dollars. With our guide (thank god for him) we walked through some of the 9000 alley ways in Fez's Medina. A medina is in many of the towns and cities in Morocco; it’s similar to a market for us. « We saw just about everything for ... read more

Day 3 Casablanca-Rabat-Meknes-Fez Early morning start had a continental breakfast at the hotel, great orange juice!! We left our hotel Prince de Paris at 745 am and headed towards the city of Rabat. We stopped and toured a few sites in Rabat and drove through the medina. A local city guide rode along with us for the morning to inform us all of what we were seeing. One of the most impressive stops was at the Tour Hassan and Mausoleum of Mohammed V; it’s a historical landmark that was never finished due to his death. They allow us to view his tomb, it's also a mosque were locals come to pray. It's guarded by guards on horses at each entrance and in each corner of the Mausoleum. We stopped at a local restaurant for lunch; we ... read more

DAY 2 - Paris to Casablanca We travelled from Paris to Casablanca on a 3 hour flight with Air France. Things went very smooth for us, a lengthy line up once we made it to Morocco customs was just our luck. We took a taxi from the airport and arrived safe and sound to our hotel 'Prince de Paris' it was pretty nice, clean but in the middle of the chaotic city of Casablanca. Once we got settled in, we went to the conference room and met our group and our tour guide. Her name is Anne, she is from Britain. We are a part of a pretty large group-43 of us, mostly British. We've befriended a brother and sister from Australia, Karen and Bernard. We had a buffet supper at the hotel. Enjoyed some wine ... read more

Europe » France » Paris November 4th 2010

DAY 1 Our travels have had a great start. We left Toronto on time with Air France. We were both really impressed with their services….free TV, free movies, free games on the screen to play, but most important free WINE!! We had a great flight. We made it all the way to our hotel in Paris, Hotel du Louvre with no troubles. We left our luggage at the hotel and set out to see the sites. First we visited the Louvre- where we saw lots of great pieces of artwork including the famous Mona Lisa. After, we walked to the Cathedral of Notre Dame….it's incredible to see the attention to detail!! We then took our chances with the subway system and headed towards to the Eiffel Tower, what a sight to see. The day has been ... read more
