Essouria, Morocco

MOROCCO | Saturday, 11 Oct 2008 | Views [505] | Comments [2]

Essouria was a nice break from Marrakech.  I could walk down the street without being hassled, and people didn't try to rip me off constantly.  It was a beach town so I spent most of my day either at the beach or walking around the small Medina.  The ... Read more >

I couchsurfed with Luis and his flatmate Marcio in Lisbon from the 19th to the 23rd.  Luis showed me all the best places in Lisbon, some that tourists dont know about.  And at nights, I went out with him, Marcio and some of his friends in the area.  Great ... Read more >
