Volubilis Morocco

  2. Hi Andrew! How is Morocco? I absolutely loved my visit there.
    I hope I get to go back at some point.
    I wanted to stop by to thank you for following my blog, Chrissy Travels. I also want to let you know that I moved from WordPress.com to a self-hosted WordPress.org site. I wasn’t sure how to move my followers over to the new platform, so I thought I’d stop by and give you a heads up. I would love it if you continued to follow me over at the new site, http://chrissytravels.com
    I hope to see you there!

    Thanks!!
    Chrissy

  3. These pics of Morocco are great. Travel is another activity I actively pursue, that I can also combine with writing.
