Trip to Morocco 2016: First Week

Hello my lovely readers!!

This summer, as usual, my family and I took a trip to Morocco. We stayed there for about a month, but roamed the country for a week at a time. We left early June, expecting to arrive a day after our departure. We left our home in Orlando for the airport at 3am to catch the 6am flight. Due to the lack of space on the flight, my dad, sister, and brother went up to NYC while my mom, other sister, and I waited for the next flight. The next flight was also full so that was a no go. I finally was able to get on the 11am flight wile my sister and mom stayed behind. I sat next to two jetBlue pilots who didn't talk very much which made for a rather uneventful flight. When I arrived at JFK, I made it a point to get Baked by Melissa cupcakes and some tea with cream and sugar; totally relieved all the past stress. Once at JFK, we had to wait until 8pm to see if we would be able to catch the flight to Morocco. Unfortunately, because of our standby situation, we didn't make it. Being that I have the coolest mom on earth though, instead of spending a day at the airport waiting for the next flight, she took us to Manhattan to explore a little and have a change of scenery. Even if for a few hours, that day trip was incredible. We walked around for a bit and had lunch at my favorite childhood restaurant, Cosi. We then headed back to the airport to catch the flight to Morocco, which we were thankfully able to get on (and on first class!!!). The wait was all worth it in the end.

We landed in Morocco the next morning, the sun shining and the wind blowing. We went to our house in Casablanca and slept for a good few hours. In the past 48 hours, we had slept maybe 6 hours, so a large lack of activity took place the next few days. The following week, we went to my grandmother's house in a village just outside of Marrakech. To avoid posting a million pictures at a time, I'll show you guys the following week at grandma's in an upcoming post so stay tuned and enjoy the pictures!!
