thanksgiving week

I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos from a trip we took to Marrakech, Morocco this year. We were on a tour in the Atlas mountains and came across a group of women carrying hay on their backs. They were visibly tired and hot, so our driver (a local) gave them his large bottle of water and some sweets. Keep in mind that they work this hard every day; it really puts things into perspective.

The next time I think I’m having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, I’ll remember that I’m very lucky to have food, shelter, clothing, and a working vehicle. Because that’s what travel makes you realize.
What are you thankful for?

    Rachel, these photos are beautiful and SO touching.

    I realized I never e-mailed you back. I have taken your advice for my trip to ROME and I cannot wait. I leave in 2 days!

    Also, I will be definitely hitting up Morocco at some point in the next few months. I LOVE reading all about your adventures. You have a beautiful passion for life.
