Travel to Morocco!
It’s been around two and a half years since our world and everything in it has been marked by the COVID-19 pandemic. Traveling now might seem intimidating at first because it’s different from what we are used to pre-pandemic. Now that borders are opening up more and more, let’s see what countries we can travel to that have easy protocols for entry!
First stop: Morocco
Did you know that in 1777 Morocco became the first country to formally recognize the US as a newly independent country?
Also, did you know that in 1786, the Moroccan-American Treaty of Friendship was signed? This treaty has lasted more than 234 years, making it the longest unbroken treaty relationship in United States history!
Moroccan culture is so welcoming and vibrant, and the people are some of the nicest people! Some foods you have to try are harira, baghrir, msemen, tagine and the classic Moroccan mint tea. The local language is a dialect of Arabic called Darija.
Now, let’s take a look at what you need to travel...
