2 Continents In One Day {And Neither Is The One I Live On}!

I hope you don't mind me returning back to my Spain pics after a little break! After we visited Madrid, Córdoba, and Sevilla we headed off to Costa del Sol and then to Morocco! We had no idea just how beautiful Costa del Sol would be. I kept saying it reminded me of my beloved Hawaii; beach on one side and mountains on the other.

On our bus ride to our hotel we caught a couple glimpses of the rock of Gibraltar!

Our hotel was located in the mountains and had the best pool area {and view} ever! The kids and teachers loved it! : )

The day after arriving in Costa del Sol we spent experiencing Morocco! First we boarded a charter a bus and then a ferry and finally we were in Africa!

Before we could enter officially, we had to stand in a line and get our temperatures taken. We were a little worried some of us would be held back, but everyone got the green light! No one wanted to miss out on Africa!

We spent the day touring a couple city markets {my favorite and so unbelievable}, riding camels {I opted out!}, eating a traditional lunch, and watching a carpet demonstration. The day was on a strict schedule, so many of my pics were taken on the fly and/or out a bus window. I hope you get a small feel for what we were able to see that day!

This was easily one of the best days of the trip and one I won't easily forget. I hope you enjoyed some of my favorites from my short time in Africa! {I like saying that...Africa...I still can't believe I was there!}

I didn't realize I took so many pics. I want to share more so be sure to stay tuned! More of Morocco to come!

Wow, these pics are gorgeous! Especially the open market ones, very cool. I've never been and at this point, don't know if I ever will, but it's fun to live vicariously through you!
