This will go down in history as one of the best experiences of my life- the night in the Sahara desert.
We packed our backpacks and mounted camels to take a two hour trek across the sands to our tent campsite. As touristy as it may sound, it was really amazing. The sand dunes are so majestic, especially once you’ve climbed to the top of the tallest one after dark. After a night spent around a campfire with live music, we awoke before the dawn and remounted our camels to watch the sunrise as we traveled back towards which we came.
It was breathtaking and so enjoyable!
And we were happy.
Take me back!

I am Meghan Johns, a 20-year-old student who comes from the small, but lovely Carthage College in Wisconsin. I study studio art, art history, and the French language there, but I am really excited to begin learning Arabic in Morocco. In my free time, I draw and write music. Traveling is always a must on my to-do list. I cannot wait to see what Rabat has to offer. You can guess how excited I am to start my adventures there this next semester, but the only thing I'll love more than having them is sharing them, with you.</span></p>
