For me Morocco has to be one of the most perfect travel destinations. It offers everything an adventurous backpacker could want: beach, mountains, desert, medieval cities, amazing food, people and culture! I've listed some of the obvious choices that are popular among travellers along with some of my personal, less visited favourites.

One day at work, a colleague came up to my desk and admired my world map with pins in all the places I had been. Out of nowhere, he randomly asked which of the Seven Wonders of the World I had been to. Surprisingly, the only one I was missing was Petra in the Middle Eastern country of Jordan.

Tell us about yourself. Who are you? Where are you from? How long have you been travelling? What is your favourite flavour of ice cream? I'm a full time travel blogger and web entrepreneur, however in a former life I worked as a Customer Service Manager for a few start-up companies. I'm originally from Pelham, a small town just north of New York City.

Fés, the second largest city in Morocco, is situated in the northern part of the country. It is a charming city which claims to have the oldest living Medina (medieval city) in the world. It isn’t a tourist haven like Marrakesh, but this city has its charms and can be a serious setback for those with a shopping problem!
We're waiting patiently in the visitor centre. It's 8.00am and a dry heat is rising outside. Tourists are crammed into every corner. If they don't have a seat, they're sitting on the tiles or standing to converse with newfound friends.

Okay, so it’s an exaggeration to say that now is the most exciting time to be in Egypt since Cleopatra was hanging out on her Nile barge, but only a little. The revolutionary dust has settled, hope is in the air, and visitors who head to Egypt now are finding they’ve made one of their greatest ever holiday choices. Here are five reasons why.

Turkey is a land of sparkling beauty and arresting sights – but no other moment can match the raw power of Gallipoli on 25th April, ANZAC Day. A day of remembrance, one of Australia’s and New Zealand’s most important national occasions, and an emotional, sobering travel experience, ANZAC Day stays emblazoned on the memory of all those who have experienced Dawn Service on Turkey’s Gallipoli Peninsula.
