I came across this video today. Brings back memories for when I was planning my Spain and Morocco trip. I had really wanted to ride on the Marrakesh Express, but sadly though I made it into Morocco, didn’t make it down to Marrakesh. Oh well, next time.

Spain Map

I have been planning to write an article regarding travel and sustainable living, however I haven’t gotten around to it yet.
