This trip took place in July 2014. On our first trip to the Netherlands, we flew in from Germany after having spent some time in Berlin. When we emerged into Amsterdam Schipol it was a bustling modern airport in comparison to Berlin Schönefeld Airport which we had flown out of. We got a train to our hotel The Student Hotel which we have a review of.

After spending our first night in Morroco at By Hotel, Laurie and I then moved onto Riad Alkaderi located in the middle of the medina. A young man directed us to the Riad, and we had to knock and ring the bell a few times before we gained access to the Riad. When we entered a young man directed us to a seating area where we were served tea and given snacks. I asked during this time if I should pay and was told no that we pay at the end of our trip.

I haven’t even completed my destinations for 2017, but I am already thinking about where I will travel and what I will do after that. I have decided once I complete all of the destinations outlined in this post ‘Where will I travel in 2017?‘. that I will take on a challenge which I have named ‘Touching on Europe’. The point of the challenge is to allow me to touch on all the countries of Europe before deciding which ones I want to see more in depth, for example I already know I want to travel throughout all of Italy just from seeing Rome. The aim will be to travel to one city or town for a few days, then deciding whether I want to see that country more in depth in the upcoming years. Continue reading “NEXT TRAVEL CHALLENGE”
