After last week’s impassioned voting and discussion on Facebook, Twitter and in the blogosphere, YOU have chosen which Intrepid Travel adventure — Classic Peru, Active Turkey or Morocco Experience — you’d like to join Kirsten & I on….
Drum roll, please… Salaam Aleikum! It’s fabulous Morocco!
(Did you already figure that out from the title? Smartie!)
With 45 percent of the vote, Morocco only edged out Peru (38%) at the very last moment. Poor Turkey was left in the dust with just 16 percent of the vote, leading me to believe that Turkey must be one of the world’s best kept secrets. Kirsten & I have both been there and loved it!
Anyhow, now it’s time for Kirsten and I to plan our upcoming trip to see all that Morocco has to offer, AND most importantly to you, to give away a spot on the trip to one lucky reader each. How exciting is that?!
A little about Intrepid Travel’s Morocco Experience
Intrepid’s Morocco Experience trip features 15 action packed days from Casablanca to Marrakech. We’ll see the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, camp in the sandy Sahara Desert, sleep in a hotel made of Saharan sand, visit the medieval old town of Fes and take a million pictures of colorful, photogenic spice markets & souqs along the way.
