I don’t think twice about traveling to foreign lands on my own but tremble at the thought of driving. I have driven, of course, but on limited routes. A few years ago, my husband and I sold my car because it was too expensive to keep and maintain for the few times I use it. And we both let out sighs of relief! I walk, take taxis, or use public transport to run errands and go places. I am very much aware, though, that my extreme discomfort in driving has hampered my ability to participate in out-of-state art workshops and exhibitions. But there are already too many unsafe drivers out there. I am one less to worry about.
Just got back from a 12-day tour of Morocco, including Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Fes, Merzouga (including a camel trek to the desert camp in the dunes of Erg Chebbi), Todra Gorge, Dades Gorge, Ouarzazate, Marrakech, and Essaouira. A fantastic trip with Real Morocco Tours! The colors, the food, the beautiful riads (Moroccan houses with inner courtyards converted into B&Bs), the amazing landscape, not to mention encountering a sandstorm upon returning from the desert camp to the hotel! I took lots of photos which I hope will inspire a few paintings.
