Pack your bags, we’re going to Morocco!

You heard me!

So we’ve started our second field option, lasting 5 weeks long. I was lucky enough to get my first choice and get onto the Morocco field, where for one week we’re whisked away to Marrakech to soak up a whole new world of culture, flavours, colours and smells! (some nicer than others).

Before heading out there we were asked to get some preparations done for the coming week away, including research and an itinerary. Me and my lovely house-mate Emily are both heading out there so we made our Itinerary together, consisting of the following:
