Magnificent places to visit in Morocco

Friday, October 14th, 2016

If you ever get the chance to visit Morocco, there are some wondrous places that you will definitely not regret visiting. Rich in history and culture, Morocco is no stranger to telling great stories among its people. Here are the most magnificent places to visit while traveling Morocco.


The High Atlas

high atlas town

This beautiful mountain range area is home to a small community of homes that are placed along the mountain’s bumpy structure. This area acts as the bridge between the heat of the lower area and the snowy mountains. The snow moves down to the village in the winter, providing a unique shift throughout the seasons.



agadir town by the sea

We often go to Morocco during the winters, and for good reason. Take a look at Agadir. This city is home to beautiful beaches, vacation resorts, mountain plains and villages. This is the ideal location for starting your Moroccan tour since it is a base for tourism and introduction to the Moroccan land.



morocco Fez Town

The largest, car-free area in the world, this former capital of Morocco is a cultural powerhouse. Filled with beautiful spots such as the Medersa Bou Inania, the Batha Museum, and the Habarim Synagogue, this land is a beautiful maze of history. Just be sure not to go without a travel agent; it very easy to get lost in.



Merzouga desert

Merzouga is the serene desert town that allows for quiet yet astounding scenery. Looking very much like a scene from the movies, Merzouga’s town has a fairy-tale sense of royalty; it’s amazing sand dunes are complemented by its clear bodies of water.



morocco Chefchaouen town

Up in Morocco’s Rift Mountains lies the cool-colored gem, Chefchaouen. This town is literally painted a bright sky-blue, giving it a dream-like personality. Chefchaouen offers a unique opportunity for Tourists to be introduced to their culture, since it is hard not to be taken by its sheer beauty and serenity.


The key to fulfilling travel in Morocco (as is with any country), is to dive in and live amongst the people and environment. You have to learn to see what life is like here; how different and similar is it from your own home? Take in the pleasures and lifestyle of the people you meet. Perhaps these acquaintances can become good friends. One thing is for sure; at the end of it all you will come home with a new appreciation for the world’s cultural beauty.

Safety Tips for the Single Woman Traveler

Monday, June 13th, 2016

Visiting a new place always comes with apprehensions.  Especially when traveling alone, being alert and looking out for yourself and your personal items is imperative to a hazard-free trip.  Though most people are friendly and happy to help tourists, some locals use that vulnerability as an opportunity to take advantage and scheme.  Following these safety tips will help you have the most enjoyable, stress-free trip possible.

The Fanny Pack

Nothing screams tourist like a fanny pack, and outing yourself as such so obviously can make you a major target for pit-pockets.  However, the function of a fanny pack, of keeping your valuables close to you, is very useful.  This is why a money belt is the perfect alternative.  Whereas a fanny pack is perfectly visible at all times, a money belt is thinner and meant to be concealed underneath one’s clothing.  This way, all of your valuables are close to your body, but you don’t give off the overt tourist vibes that could get you into trouble.

Odd Behavior

Obviously kindness from a stranger should not be shocking or alarming, but be aware that suspicious behavior such as unprompted conversations and offers of help can be distractions to a greater goal.  Tourists have reported being bumped into and apologized to, only to realize that while they were bumping into Suspect #1, Suspect #2 was taking the wallet and camera out of their bag.  Being vigilant is the best way to stay safe, and if a situation begins to feel unsafe, you can leave it before anything happens.

Don’t Take Everything

Though you may not have a “home” wherever you’re traveling, leaving some of your valuables in a secure place wherever you’re staying is much better than taking everything important out with you.  It may be scary to leave part of your travel money in a locker at a hostel, but that is undoubtedly a safer choice than taking everything with you all the time and risking a disastrous theft.

Traveling as a single person, especially as a single woman, can feel very vulnerable.  That’s one reason why going on a tour with other similar women wanting a positive travel experience is such a great option for those wanting a safe adventure.  There’s safety, and fun, in numbers.

Should You Buy Travel Insurance For Your Next Trip?

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Travel Insurance

The answer is a pretty straightforward one. “Yes. You need travel insurance for many reasons” and none of them are to help your travel agent get rich. Your travel agent has good reason for suggesting that you buy travel insurance for your next adventure. The “travel horror stories” agents tell might sound dramatic, but they are nonetheless true. Without travel insurance, you could very well find yourself stuck in paradise with no luggage, at the very least, or stuck facing large medical bills after an unexpected emergency.

Why Should I Buy Travel Insurance?

In most cases, travelers do not experience a life or death illness or any other major issue while on vacation. That is the good news. The bad news? Those travelers who have experienced serious interruptions to their vacation plans will tell you they wish they had travelers insurance to ease the financial and emotional burden they faced during an already stressful time.

Having the financial support to help you deal with any unwanted surprises while traveling is not only smart for your money, but smart for your peace of mind as well. However, all travel insurance policies are not the same. There are a few things you need to consider when making your decision on what type of traveling insurance to purchase and the type of coverage you should expect.

Any good travel insurance should cover the five following things:

  1. Medical Emergencies and Evacuations
  2. Cancelled Trips
  3. Lost or Damaged Personal Items (luggage included)
  4. Personal liability
  5. Flexibility with Trip Start/End date.

Let us explain each part:

Medical Emergencies – No travel insurance is complete without this component. Sure, medical treatment is often less costly in other countries. However, paying that bill upfront can still lead to sticker shock. When purchasing travel insurance, take the time to thoroughly read this section over. You will want to pay especially close attention to the type of medical coverage offered (dental, emergency services, routine medical coverage, etc) coverage limits, potential coverage exclusions and more.

Cancellations – Life continues even though you have made travel plans. In the instance that unforeseen situations arise (like a death in the family or medical emergency), having travel insurance will allow you to be refunded in the event you cannot make your trip.

Lost or Damaged Personal Items – Outside of emergency medical issues, nothing can spoil your travel plans faster than stolen, lost or misplaced luggage. In most cases, your belongings will get to your destination safe and sound. On the off-chance that does not happen, travel insurance can help you replace those items at a later date. For items that are stolen, you can file a claim and as long as reasonable diligence was done on your part, you will receive reimbursement for any items taken. For example, if you leave your laptop in a shared hotel and then report it missing, chances are the claim will be rejected as the company will mostly likely determine that reasonable diligence was not exercised. As always, when choosing a travel insurance policy, review the coverage limits on high value items (like personal computers, cameras, sporting equipment, etc.) to ensure the terms are best for your needs.

Be advised that in order to use this benefit of your travel insurance, you will have to purchase far in advance of your trip. Buying traveler’s insurance one week before your departure date and attempting to cancel the trip a few days later will likely result in a denied claim. Also, not all travel insurance plans are created equal. Some do not cover cancellations at all, while some only cover your non-refundable, pre-booked costs if your trip stalls after you’ve already left home.

Personal Liability – Normally, when referring to liability people typically think about car insurance. This component of travel insurance is somewhat like that but not exactly the same. Different countries have different rules, laws and customs. So if you are involved in an accident or unintentionally cause damage that you are held responsible for, personal liability  insurance can cover your legal expenses.

Flexible Start/End Date for Trip – This benefit sounds tricky but it is pretty clear-cut. If you have to cut your 4 month Bali trip down to 2 months, this clause in your insurance will cover you should you resume the remaining portion of the trip. What it will NOT do is cover you while you are home. The benefit to this feature is it keeps you from buying two separate travel insurance policies for one trip. Be sure to read the coverage options and benefits and identify the clauses (medical emergency, cancelled trip, etc) that are covered.

Top 4 Reasons Why Traveling to South Africa Needs to Be on Everyone’s Bucket List

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

South Africa is a country filled with one of a kind attractions, cities, and landscapes. Here we are going to touch base on 4 reasons why everyone should travel to South Africa at least once in their lifetime. (Once one visits South Africa, we agree, it surely will not be the last time)

1. Captivating foods, and activities- When in South Africa, don’t worry too much when it comes to finances, just focus on enjoying time while there. The U.S dollar goes a long way in this country. Many restaurants in South Africa serve authentic South African cuisine at very affordable prices for the nomadic traveler who is a foodie at heart. Wine tasting is also a very popular activity in this particular part of the world. South African cuisine and wine, it doesn’t get any better than that when it comes to culturally dining out! Talk about going a long way for some one of a kind eats!

2. Cultural Diversity- One of the many reasons South Africa has become such a popular place for a traveler to visit is because people who travel yearn for culture. South African culture is different than any other culture we have ever experienced anywhere else on this planet. It is entirely unique to itself. Nearly 52 million people make up the South African population. This is a highly diverse country. Big cities in South Africa have often been compared to Chicago or New York because there are a multitude of different ethnicities in one common place. There are a whopping total of 11 different languages spoken throughout the South African land! Many of those languages actually being derived from native tribes, making it not only a cultural hot spot, but an overall culture based on the foundation of unity as well.

3. Awe-striking views and enjoyable weather- South Africa is over 470,000 square miles of breath taking coastline, exciting inner cities, and extensive farmland. When visiting South Africa you will be exposed to the ever so popular umbrella thorn trees, rolling mountains, and lush, green fields. South Africa is home to many observation lookouts as well. Always allowing us, from wherever we are, to experience the beauty of this land, extensively. The weather in South Africa is absolutely pristine. A pleasant refreshing year-round averaging temperature in the low to upper 70’s during the day, whilst dropping to the comfortable low 40’s pending the arrival of the sunset and late evening.

4. South Africa’s History- South Africa is a country drenched in history. Many a historians’ tour South Africa to meet their historical accuracy necessity, as well as the traveling nomad. The sheer pride of the South African people is shown throughout their country with beautifully erected monuments that celebrate the country’s tumultuous yet absolutely inspiring liberation movement. It is (hands down) a destination to visit if you need a bit of inspiration. South Africa is a country visited by travelers from all over the world. It has become increasingly popular over the last few years to visit this destination. Everyone should travel to this country at least once in their lifetime, but for the many people of South Africa, this is the beautiful place that they call home.

5 Simple Hacks That Make Flying Easier

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Beat the Hassle of Traveling with these 5 Simple Hacks that Make Flying Easier

Many who stress over traveling (especially for international flights), often resort to Xanax or Ambient to get through the anxiety of it all, but there are actually plenty of travel hacks out there that make the whole experience infinitely easier. From finding the cheapest flights to getting through the flight itself with no worries, the hacks are infinite.

At Women Traveling the World, we’ve been on our fair share of adventures around the world, and with that in mind, we’ve decided to put together some quick hacks you may want to adopt for your next trip.

5 Simple Travel Tips for Your Next Adventure

  1. Check online for tickets on Tuesday’s around 3pm. If you travel with our group vacations at Women Traveling the World, the booking isn’t anything you have to worry about because we will handle that for you. With several years of experience working as travel agents, we can book any flight, no problem. However if you’re not traveling with our group, you’ll want to follow this travel tip. Airlines like JetBlue and Southwest often lower their prices weekly around 3pm on Tuesdays. If you check after 3pm, the larger airlines usually lower their prices as well.
  2. Try and get a workout in before your flight. Just like Elle Woods said in Legally Blond, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make your happy.” With that being said, trying to get in a quick workout before your trip will help your body relax once you’re finally on the flight, which means it’ll be far easier for you to fall asleep (without a Xanax).
  3. Splurge on a lounge pass. If you don’t have time to work out before your flight, indulge in one of the airlines first class lounges. Many will offer “one day” passes, but that depends on both the airline as well as the airport you’re flying out of.
  4. The time of day you fly affects the turbulence. No one likes to fly on a plane that experiences turbulence because you’re essentially in a tin can 30,000 feet above the ground and shaking. So, if turbulence is something you want to avoid, try to book your flight early in the morning. Thunderstorms usually don’t begin to form until the afternoon, making morning flights a smoother ride. Plus, people don’t like flying extremely early in the morning, so the flights may be cheaper, and you may even be able to snag your own row on the plane to really relax. If you can’t snag a morning flight, try and book your seat in the middle of the plane. Since planes are kind of like seesaws, you’ll feel less turbulence near the wings.
  5. Make your luggage a quick find. Whether you have a bright colored suitcase, or a colorful name tag, you want to make sure you luggage is easy to spot once you reach your destination. More often than not, the luggage carousels are just one continuous line of black and brown bags that all look the same. So, get yourself a bright purple one so you can spot it right away and beat the crowd on your way out.
