Really, that sounds very interesting...and smells delicious. My destinations would be Casablanca, Marrakesh and Fes, but of course Sahara desert is a must. Deserts are amazing, I was stunned when my flight flew for more than two hours over the Arabian desert without any sign of life below. Two hours!! By plane!! How vast a desert was that with no humans? :shocked:

Thanks, I might change my itineraries. Still giving it a thought, perhaps canceling the Croatia trip and go to Morocco via Madrid or Lisbon instead.


I would think very carefully before travelling to Morocco alone as a female, Ive heard first hand from girlfriends that it can be very intimidating for women being harassed by groups of men. One had money stolen from her wallet which was hidden in her case in her riad and was constantly followed by different men in Fes every time she went out, in fact she cut short her stay there because of it. Croatia is stunning I visited Split and definitely want to go back and travel around there.


Whoops, so sorry, Tuscany, I just saw your post now!! :shocked: :dizzy: Thanks for the advice. Now I am totally confused, lol. That sounds intimidating indeed :sad:
Maybe I will stick to my Croatian trip, actually I already booked an apartment for five days in front of the beach, just behind the ancient gate where Games of Thrones was filmed. Split is not in my book yet but it sounds good.

They actually filmed GOT in Split too. Climbing the tower of St Domnius Cathedral however was terrifying the steps to the top are wooden and wobble about, thought I was going to be stuck half way up clinging on to the rail i'm not great with heights haha I would very much recommend that beautiful ancient city though.

Now I need to try that!!! I love climbing high constructions, be they buildings, towers, fortresses, lighthouses, or cathedrals! I'll make sure I go to Split too if time permits.

I love eating mussels. Had a bowl in Nice's Old Town, France, but it was a bit salty and the size of the bowl is HUGE, lol, and I was eating alone. I was shocked when it was served, lol.

I agree Europe's endless. So lucky for people who live in Europe.

No pictures, Insomnia?

Wow! Stunning pictures, Insomnia! I love the stone church, never been to anything like that, I mean a church made of stones or rocks! I've been to stone constructions before, like in Pompeii, Athens and Istanbul, but they are not churches. But curiously the interior of the church looks like it came from a different period of time. Is that in Dublin? What church is that? It looks like the countryside. I'd enjoy walking along those stony alleys and steps. Thanks for uploading them for us to see. Ireland should be on my bucket list.

Really love the surroundings!
