Hi <<First Name>>

If you've been following us on Instagram stories, you might have seen updates from our epic trip around Morocco with Gadventures! I won this trip in a competition during a travel trade show and Gadventures asked if Nick wanted to come along if we would write about our experience... Uh... OKAY!

We started in Casablanca, then drove via the Roman ruins of Volubilis to the incredible city of Fes, driving through the Atlas mountains into the desert and then via Todra Gorge and the stunning Kasbahs of Aït Benhaddou to Marrakech. It was a whirl-wind tour and we saw so much, expect plenty of stories on our social media channels and blog! 

In Marrakech, we did an incredible food tour with our friends from Marrakech Food Tours (hosted by Yousef and Amanda from @marocmama) - which was definitely also one of the highlights of the trip. 

Much time to reflect (or edit our 2200+ photos and videos -EEP!) won't be there for me, because I'm already packed up for the next adventure: I'll be travelling to Belfast in Northern Ireland tomorrow to attend a pro-blogging conference and then continue onward to the city of Exeter in Southwest England for a short post-conference trip.

Afterwards, I probably need to lock myself into a dark room for a few days to get all the articles out to you in time for the next trip... but I will tell you more about that soon! 

If you're interested in getting live updates, make sure to follow along on Instagram stories and then I'll speak to you again next week!
