Hi Chris,
My name is Sofia, I live in San Diego, CA. I am sure you get this a lot… But I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE your show. I often listen to podcasts at work, in the car, when I am in my “dreaming” mode… All the time! Your ability to ask the proper questions and help the narrator express himself in a descriptive manner astonishes me.
Chris, I am planning a trip to Morocco with my friend Jasmine from Australia and we will be traveling to Morocco. I have heard your Morocco podcasts and I wanted to ask your professional opinion regarding our trip. We are planning to go to Morocco May 1-6, 2016, we have a limited budget, and a limited amount of time. What do you suggest we do? Do you know any tours that we can take?
I know you are busy… So if I don’t hear back I understand!
Keep up with your amazing podcast! Rock on with your bad self!




Sofia, With just 6 days I might focus on just a couple of places, depending on what you like. Maybe Marrakech and Essaouira or just Fez. It would be easy to spend all of 6 days just getting places.
