Two Day Stay in Morocco by Jessica Ballerstein

The last place we went on our 10 day adventure was Morocco! We felt it was a great way to close our Middle East adventure. Since we were traveling from Egypt airfare was inexpensive. Knowing what we knew about Morocco it would be amiss if we didn’t visit the culturally rich country!

The Best of Egypt by Jessica Ballerstein

The Spirited Wanderer: London by Jessica Ballerstein

I have always wanted to go to London. It was literally number one future travel destinations from the time I was 16 years old. Initially, I wanted to take this trip with my high school friends but after years of talking about it, I realized the truth. The truth was this never was going to happen if I rely on them. Everyone was busy adulting. Either getting married, working, in school for the whole year, or just flat out broke.
