Before resuming my travels in July, my top two countries to visit were Greece and Morocco. Starting in Ireland, I didn't want to jump back and forth, and decided my Eastern European country list was greater in number than the Morocco/Spain/Portugal route; so, I passed up Morocco for another time. Upon meeting my boyfriend, the original "back and forth" prevailed, and I decided to capitalize on my return to Ireland by spending a month exploring the nearby Morocco. (The things you do for love, eh? #firstworldproblems)
Tangier; Tanjay. Tangeer. Tanjeer. Everyone pronounces it differently, I heard multiple variations, so anything goes. It's a transient destination, usually people are coming or going through the port via ships, or to the airport. It was my entry and exit city. I got a round trip flight with RyanAir for about $120. Normally I don't make a circle, but it worked out! While I was in Tangier, I learned about Asilah, a nearby coastal town, and had already made nonrefundable accommodation reservations going to Chefchaouen, so I was happy to find another reason to come back to the area without rearranging my plans!
