My Own Walking Tour at the Kasbah in Tangier

I always thought that the likes of Paris or Venice were the world’s greatest destinations for avid tourists like me. But like other travelers who happen to evolve with time and finally find their nerves agreeing on visiting a relatively cheaper and distant destination, I found my solace in traveling to Tangier.

Four Attractions Not to Miss in Meknes (Morocco).

Four Attractions Not to Miss in Meknes

Meknes is an ancient place in Morocco that most tourists would pass by, in favour of the nearby Fez. Most tourists who go here are day trippers from Fez. They combine their day trip to Meknes with Moulay Idriss and Volubilis, an ancient Roman city. And that’s exactly what I did. I joined a 4-person […]

The Roman Amphitheater After the Upgrade (Alexandria, Egypt).

The Roman Amphitheater After the Upgrade

It’s no surprise if there’s a Roman amphitheater in the middle of Alexandria. It’s a city which was conquered, ruled and heavily influenced by Rome. The ruins were discovered during the excavation to lay the foundations of a government building. In fact, right next to the ruins is a heavily-guarded military training base. After months of […]

The National Museum of Alexandria (Egypt).

Alexandria National Museum Was a Disappointment

Alexandria is an ancient city and as any tourist would expect, its National Museum should be filled with great things. But, I was disappointed. While the objects were labeled properly, the museum is dead. Like a necropolis. I think it has something to do with the kind of too much drama in their lightings. Or, […]

Photos: Inside the Red Pyramid in Cairo

Going inside the Red Pyramid in Cairo is an experience worth doing. It might be hard for those who have fear of closed spaces but you’d never regret it. You’ll reach the bosom of the Pyramid in your own time and emerge victorious.

This is what you see inside the Red Pyramid in Egypt. It is said to be the world’s oldest true pyramids. This is located at Dahshur, 20 kilometres away from the famous trio of Pyramids in Giza. Don’t be fooled by its name though. The whole facade of the pyramid has nothing red on it. […]

Chaouen - Morocco's Most Photogenic Blue City.

Chefchaouen – Morocco’s Most Photogenic Blue City

I have no doubt that Chefchaouen is Morocco’s most photogenic blue city. There are no skyscrapers here but mountains and there are no flickering light bulbs at night but stars. The houses aren’t made of steel and glass windows but of adobe bathed in blue. Welcome to the blue city under a blue sky! These houses […]

An early walk at the medina in Fes, Morocco.

Medina in Fes Looks Eerie in the Morning

The moment I entered the medina in Fes, I was met with a lot of annoyances. A simple “thank you” with a smile didn’t work, so I ignored the scammers and hawkers. The first scammer told me that the hostel I’ve booked had already been closed a week ago. He then recommended me a very nice […]
