My unforgettable trip from Rabat, Morocco to Kabul, Afghanistan

By: Ana Cristina Ibarra – 8th red

  • After wondering for a long time where I should travel, the idea to visit other cultures totally different from mine crossed my mind. I chose to travel from Rabat, Morocco to Kabul, Afghanistan. Since I wanted to remember this trip from the first day it all started, I decided to record everything I learned from every place I visited in a travel journal so I could show my whole family what a wonderful experience I had during my voyage in North Africa and East Asia.
