Today I am departing on yet another fabulous adventure with my travel girls, or as I like to refer to us, The Fearsome Foursome!
Our first trip together was about 9 years ago when our friend “J” was about to celebrate a significant birthday. Turning 50, she expressed a desire to spend her special day in Italy. Reaching out to a few of her friends, she invited us to join her, & voila, the Fearsome Foursome was born.
As we sat sipping wine together on our last day in Italy, we reminisced about what a fabulous time we had had, not wanting the experience to end. An idea was formed & a promise made that we would make an attempt to continue our travel together, planning an adventure every 2 or 3 years, for as long as our health & our finances would allow us.
Since that initial trip to Italy, we have visited Greece, France, Spain & Portugal together, all of which I hope to write about at some point.
Today we head to Lisbon for a few days & then on to Morocco. For some crazy reason, we all have the desire to get on a camel & ride out into the desert before our old bones won’t allow us to.
This trip is a little different from what we would normally do. We generally develop our own itinerary, plotting our own course & renting properties along the way. All of us agree that this gives us a much more organic experience, allowing us to truly get a feel for the places we have had the good fortune to visit.
For this excursion, we made the decision to book with a tour company. Not a big bus with 80 people kind of tour. Our tour is a private one, just the 4 of us with our driver who will wind his way through Morocco with four 50+ year old women.
If the man is still sane by the end of his 15 day stint with the four of us cackling in his ear, it will be a miracle!
He has no idea what he is in for! Until next time….
