The new year is almost here. Like most, we have been dreaming of the new places we will visit in 2020! We may or may not have already looked up some deals and/or created future itineraries (of course we have! lol). While you may be wondering where to visit but not in the mood to do the research just yet, we have done some of the legwork for you!

No visit to Marrakech would be complete without trying one of their local dishes; a tagine – which can come in a variety of meats or veggies.

As a little girl, I imagined the lives of Cleopatra, Nefertiti, King Tut, Ramses (all of them); how did they rule? What would’ve happened if Cleopatra stayed alive and saved Egypt from Roman rule?
