Camels are indeed super cool

Sherry, Savanna and I came home from Morocco last night. We can tell you that camels are indeed super cool.

Below are some photos from our camel ride, and having mint tea after the ride. We were all covered with cheich, but I think Savanna wins the cuteness contest in hers.

Of course, the trip was so much more than the camel ride. I’ll need some time to go through my 1,614 photos, and let my thoughts come together on how to tell you about the trip.

Because camels are super cool

10 years ago, when I turned 30, I wanted to do something big to celebrate a new decade. I rode my motorcycle solo from Vancouver to Halifax, camping along the way and eating meals out of my camping stove.

10 years later, things look dramatically different at home. Josh is 5 1/2 and Savanna is 3 1/2. I can’t justify taking off for 2 weeks by myself. The truth is, I don’t think I would do that ride again. I was dog tired last time after 6,200 km, and I was a lot younger then.

My craving for interesting travel never stopped. I feel like this is the right time now to start doing some more interesting things again, involving the kids. Unfortunately, Cliff has to work, and Josh has school. That leaves Savanna and I to plan a girls’ trip on our own.

Savanna and I have agreed that riding on a camel in Morocco would be pretty interesting. We also convinced Sherry that camels are super cool, so she’s coming too to check things out.

I’ll report back in two weeks and let you know if camels are in fact super cool.
