Upon arriving in Morocco I had no idea what to expect. I knew it was a part of Africa, but I wasn’t real familiar with the culture there. My feelings were a mixture of anxiety and excitement. Not just because I was about to do the most amazing expedition of a lifetime, but because it was unfamiliar territory. It was my first time stepping foot on the African continent.
I went into the country of Morocco blindly, without any assumptions, concerns, or stereotypes. As I spent time there and was able to learn a little about their culture, I was impressed, and my eyes became opened to things about/in my life that I could improve. I learned a lot about myself, who I am, what I really care about, and what really matters. I can honestly say that it was more than an “expedition” for me, it was an enlightenment for me. On a less serious note, it was also brought to my attention that I look kind of like the men in Morocco. I was told that I could pass for a Moroccan many times, while I was out there.
Altogether, my experience in the Kingdom of Morocco was amazing, and I would definitely go back. Thank you Morocco! You taught me so much.
