Discovering Taghazout

Most people come to Taghazout for the surf, which they should it is a bonafide surf village after all.

My second week, feeling better, I have tried really going out and surfing …

Surfing – My First Day

Surfing has always been a sport that I wanted to try, but never have. My reasons for not trying to surf are not very acceptable for someone who says they want to try something. It has been around me for more than half my life as I live in California presently, and grew up in Alaska (there is surfing there). …

Morocco… Finally

October has been a busy travel month for me. My summer job ended at the beginning of the month, and my travels started just 2 days after my last day of work. Fortunately being someone who is blessed with seasonal employment, my travels will continue on until my next job starts in December. For this break in between employment, I …
