I recently returned from a 5-week trip to Spain and Morocco. I quite often have the thought that the hardest part is getting somewhere. After traveling to 6 cities in five weeks I might have to reconsider my thoughts. There is definitely something to be said for staying in one place.
I started out with a plan to go to Madrid, Malaga and Barcelona. Then I had the thought to buy a train pass and make a loop around Spain, making a few more stops. Oh, and then I had the idea that “since Seville is so close to Morocco, I’ve always wanted to go”. Then someone told me that Marrakech is better than Tangiers (just a big port city). So I found a flight from Seville to Marrakech.
You know the movie Planes, Trains and Automobiles – that was us for 5 weeks. It wasn’t easy – it was downright tiring at times. It wasn’t a relaxing vacation but it was AMAZING, WONDERFUL, FUN, REWARDING and FANTASATIC.
So my final thought is that if you want a relaxing vacation – stay put in one spot. Next time…
