With a poodle in tow!

Finally. After all my scheming and planning, my trip is actually drawing near! Being a pathological organiser, with a touch of OCD, I tend to organise my travels pretty far in advance. Thinking about where and when to go, researching destinations and where to stay and where to find quirky little-visited places to visit. So now I've hit the point where all the big stuff is paid for, most accom is booked and I have a vague idea of what the hell I'm going to do once I skip town. Bliss!
I've dreamed about Morocco for a long time - it's always held a firm place in my imagination and although I try not to build things up in my mind too much, for fear of disappointment, I have a feeling that Morocco will meet, and surpass, my expectations. Best of all, my mother has been feeling somewhat philanthropic and decided that my youngest sister, Pippa, should get her travelling feet wet and join me in Morocco. Since I'm travelling with a friend in Spain and was planning to do Morocco solo, this seems like the perfect plan. Specially for Pip, if Mum is footing part of the bill...maybe my fee for 'finishing Pippa on the continent' will be Mum footing the bill for my shopping trip to the medina in Marrakech! Think Pip and I will make quite good travel buddies - she's the perfect foil to my pathalogical organising (she's spontaneous to the n-th degree). We even have a little international film project on the boil....but more on that later.
Probably time to procrastinate some more and find some new cities to visit!
