“Ooooh, wat leuk, een dochtertje!!! Gefeliciteerd! Maar dan is het zeker wel voorbij met die verre reizen?” Ik sta er van te kijken hoe vaak we deze opmerking hebben gehad. Is het dan echt zo gek om met een kleintje op reis te gaan?

Hotel of a thousand stars

Desert nights in Morocco

“BUUUUURRRB”. There’s a rumble from the deepest parts of my desert ship. Until now the ride was without problems, but with sounds like these I fear the worst. As expected the sounds are accompanied by the aroma of semi-digested grass. This is however just a minor inconvenience. The beauty of this moroccan sand desert is overwhelming.
