Travel Notes: Summer Vacation in Mallorca & Marrakech

I hope your summer vacation is going well, or went well if you’re part of one of those many families whose school year starts in early August. I just got back from a three-week holiday in Mallorca, Spain and Marrakech, Mallorca. We spent the first two weeks in Mallorca and then went to Marrakech for a week. Mallorca (specifically, Palma) feels like home for us since this was our 6th year of going there, but Marrakech was completely new for all of us.  I was admittedly a bit overwhelmed by the heat (106 degrees!), the frenetic energy of the souks, the cultural differences and lack of air conditioning in some places, but by Day 2, I had already decided we will definitely return to this magical city. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve likely seen some of the photos of our trip, but below are some other favorites that have not been posted elsewhere. What cities or countries are on your travel wish list?
