Merzouga is a small town near the dunes, named after the Merzouga desert, part of the great Sahara desert inhabited by local Berber families working in tourism – they organize desert tours and camps, camel treks and wonderful nights under the starry desert sky as we later found out!
It was back in March 2016 when me and my best friends headed to Morocco by plane and even though I wouldn’t think of visiting the North-African country again, I have to admit that it was one of the funniest and most exciting trips of that year. I had so many great experiences and took so many photos, I had to share with you!
I’m the type of traveller who leaves behind every preconceived idea of a place I may have before visiting it but, I must admit, I was prejudiced towards Sofia since I had that unfounded belief that it was an unsafe city, one of those capitals without an identity of her own that featured a combination of characteristics from other significant European countries such as Italy/Germany/England

A long-desired trip which I’ve been dreaming about for awhile now, marked with the number 8 on my travel bucket list finally came true: that was my recent…

That makes it an ideal destination for those wishing to organize daily excursions to explore the neighboring countries.
The Trans-Mongolian offers a whole different experience compared to the Trans-Siberian; a much newer and consequently, cleaner and modern train, I definitely wish I could spend more time on than just 24 hours. In my cabin this time, I meet a Mongolian guy that seems quite disturbed by my presence. He nearly spoke to me during the rest of the trip!
