Do you have a travel bug that you just HAVE to scratch?
That’s me Amanda (or MarocMama as I’m known online) and my husband Youssef or MarocBaba. We met in Marrakech, Morocco – his hometown and began our crazy life. I’ve loved traveling for as long as I can remember. My childhood was full of travels near and far and I made my first international trip at 16. That was all it took to hook me for life! We have two boys, Mikhail and Khalil and while most people might scale back travel with kids in tow, we want them to see the best the world has to offer!
They are airport experts, can handle a 10+ hour car ride with ease, love taking trains and are always ready for an adventure. Our travel isn’t all Disney World and cotton candy, no it’s quite the opposite.
We want our children to become citizens of the world.
We believe they should be able to recognize the Eiffel Tower as easily as they could Mickey Mouse or a carnival ride. That they should jump into new situations that are outside of their comfort zone and not scoff when presented with foods other American kids would consider “weird”. That’s one big reason we left the United States and moved to Morocco!
We’re taking adventures all the time and we want to share them with other families and individuals who have the same dream as we do;
We believe that everyone in this world has something to offer. Every culture and religion has value and is worth our understanding. Each person on this planet has worth simply because they are here. Most importantly we believe that there is more in common between us than divides us.
So whether you’re a family, a single person or a couple we hope you’ll enjoy our journey and join us on our ride!
We’ve been traveling the world for as long as we can remember!
While we love culture we also take time to explore the natural world.
As long as we’re on the go – we’re smiling (at least most of us!)
While we try to travel as a family as often as possible, we also travel as a couple. (Kids need grandma time!)
Sometimes, I set off on my own.
We love working with companies and destinations who offer experiences and products that are true to our global lifestyle. Whether you want to highlight your destination to a diverse audience through a press/ media trip, you’re looking for a freelance writer for your publication or website, or you’d like to book Amanda for a speaking engagement or event we’re happy to talk and see how we might work together!
