While I am always thrilled to be hitting the road no matter what the destination, not all locations are created equal. Some fill my heart with such excitement that for weeks beforehand, my brain will be pumped with adrenaline as I go to bed, making it difficult to fall asleep. Destinations that amp me up to this level are quite rare – Lake Tahoe, California, the Outback of Australia, my first visit to Paris, and now – the Kingdom of Morocco!

That’s right – Something in Her Ramblings is heading to Africa! In just one week I will be checking another continent off my list as I explore Marrakech, Morocco’s fourth-largest city, famous for its Berber markets and old palaces.

After 5,000 visits to the Morocco Pavilion at Walt Disney World Resort’s Epcot, i’m finally going to get to experience the real deal!

I usually travel solo, but this time I will be exploring with my friend and fellow English teacher, Emily. We will bring back tips on how female travelers can stay safe while visiting this exotic land.

It’s been a cold, long winter in Madrid and I cannot wait to take a break from the wind and rain and enjoy the sunshine and 70-plus degree weather in Marrakech.

I am thrilled to be staying at the Riad AnaYela, a luxury boutique hotel in central Medina that is at the center of my excitement for the trip.

Located in a 300-year-old palace, the architecture tells the story of a girl called Yela who once lived in this house. With this unique storyline, traditional architecture and furnishings designed by Moroccan artisans, this enchanting hotel is sure to be a fairtale setting for a girlfriend getaway and I can’t wait to experience it!
