Perched upon a balcony in the middle of the Medina, smoke is billowing from the stalls below, the lights twinkle along the alleyways with lanterns hang- this is Marrakesh. A market where the locals and the tourist converge to shop, take in the sights, and to catch a glimpse of the snake charmers luring snakes […]

Boom! Boom! Boom! I can feel the ground beneath me vibrate in a fast paced rhythmic tune as the drummers bang on their drums in the Medina square in Marrakesh. The drums feel louder and louder as I walk closer through the crowds, weaving in and out I see a crowd gathering around the drummers, […]

Travel will always be my first love…it’s been there for me through awful breakups, deaths of loved ones, through sickness and in health. I’ve had to face some real hard truths abroad, and I’ve also discovered myself through a journey around the world. I could honestly live out of a suitcase for a long period […]

“Trouble named Thyroid”

March 31st, 2012 by Cherié


Some of you might have noticed the silence from my twitter feed as well as from my blog. I wrote about my recent struggle with life after a RTW trip with Semester at Sea program earlier. I was slowly getting back into the swing of things, with school and with a semi charmed kind of […]
