You Can Never Go Wrong with Pre-Planning Your Outfits

When you're traveling, it helps to plan what you're going to wear ahead of time, especially if you have a habit of last-minute packing. It wouldn't hurt to research about the weather and culture of the place you're going to and make sure you have the appropriate attire with you. You wouldn't want to look back at your photos wishing you wore something better, right?

[04/03/19]   A Friendly Reminder

When traveling, it is important to be flexible. Plan for things that can go wrong and expect delays. Remember — patience is a virtue!

#CasablancaTravelAndTours #Travel

March Is When the Sun Crosses the Equator

“There are two equinoxes every year – in March and September – when the Sun shines directly on the equator and the length of night and day are nearly equal.

The March equinox marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from south to north. This happens on March 19, 20, or 21 every year.”

Equal days and equal nights mean equal opportunities to enjoy what Morocco has to offer, with or without the sun.

History
The Whittemore House, home of the Woman’s National Democratic Club, is an elegant his-toric mansion located in Washington's DuPont Circle neighborhood. Built between 1892 and 1894 as a private residence, it was designed by Washington architect Harvey L. Page (1859-1934) for opera singer Sarah Adams Whittemore, a descendent of the well-known Adams family of Massachusetts, and William C. Whittemore, her second husband.
Several well-known occupants have lived in the house. In 1903 Senator John F. Dryden (1839-1911), a Republican from New Jersey and one of the founders of Prudential Insurance Company, rented the building. Dryden was a member of Congress from 1902 to 1907. The best-known tenant was banker John W. Weeks (1860-1926), a Republican Congressman from Massachusetts (1905-1913), who leased the Whittemore House from 1907 to 1911. Later he was elected a Senator from Massachusetts (1913 to 1919) and served as Secretary of War under Harding and Coo-ledge (1921 to 1925). Mrs. Whittemore died in 1907, and left the property to her son and daughter. Her son, Walter D. Wilcox, an explorer, travel author, and photographer, moved his family into the home in 1919, living in the mansion until 1926. The house has been known as the Weeks House and as the Wilcox House in its history.
The Whittemore House has a kinship to both the English Arts and Crafts movement and American “Shingle Style” architecture. It shares with these movements a retreat from the beaux-arts style that dominated the Washington landscape in the late 1800s. The design of the Whittemore House suggests that Page was in tune with the most advanced architectural thinking of his day, which emphasized the elimination of non-essential decorative details in lieu of simplicity of form and an open free flowing interior plan. The house was also one of the first in Washington to be electrified.

Skiing in Morocco

When you think of Morocco, do you only have deserts and heat in mind? We'll have you know that Morocco is a great place for winter activities, too!

If you’re into skiing, you can spend the day in a ski resort. One we would recommend is the highest ski resort in Africa — the Ouka'meden. You can find this 45 km away from Marrakech along the High Atlas Mountains. You can definitely enjoy the thrill of rocky slopes and more.

Trekking in Sahara

Trekking along the Sahara desert is best done in February and March. This is when the temperature is the mildest. Around that time, you can also enjoy the flowering plants at the base of the dunes.

Visit Sahara now before it’s too late! The intolerable heat strikes once more around April. Sandstorms also happen more frequently around that time, beginning at the end of March.

The Hassle of the Haggle

If you check out travel blogs of people who’ve been to Morocco before, you might notice the ceaseless mention of haggling. Keep in mind that this will be an inevitable experience here.

Make sure to think about what you want and the price you're willing to pay beforehand. You can also find less hassle in purchasing stuff if you go to fixed-price shops.

Other than that, always do your research before traveling, especially if it’s to a place that you’ve never been to before.
