Morocco is one of the exotic destinations that almost every woman dreams to visit at least once in a lifetime. Some women fall in love with the country or with Moroccan man and end up living there. Despite the exotic and beauty, how it feels as woman traveling in beautiful Morocco?

This is particularly true in the countryside. For these reasons, Western women (generally speaking) are perceived as readily available, and those with fair skin and light eyes are even considered as exotic. Even if you are not alone and feel safe, let the man next to you to ask for directions or to haggle on the price because you do not want unwanted attention and familiarity. Moroccan men are not aggressive, but will benefit from the chance to touch an "exotic" woman. Make the most of your 1001 Nights fairytale but be prudent!

As a child I dreamed of becoming a flight attendant so I can travel around the world. Years later, the life’s circumstances took me to Ethiopia where I’ve spent one year. Followed Romania, Ukraine ... Wherever I go I can’t get enough. I want to embrace the world and the people in it, get to know them and learn all about the places, cultures and lifestyles. To learn patience, creativity and wisdom. Because I believe that only travels through unknown lands can open the most human and personal knowledge that would otherwise remain hidden to our eyes. All I have learned from strangers in foreign countries, all wisdom collected and all the joy I had in my travels I try to share in my blog. The reason I’ve created When Woman Travels is to present the female point of view and to be useful to women i n their travels. Because women are curious and thirsty for knowledge beings, and knowing the world is the best way to get to know ourselves.
