Status update and what’s to come

It has been a while since I posted anything here. This is mainly because this is a travel blog and not much traveling have been done.

Traveling in Arab countries

I was watching this 20 year old travel documentary with the great Danish adventurer Troels Kløvedal (literally Troels Rivendell, like Lord of the Rings). In this particularly episode, he is sailing his famous ship from India to Oman. Arriving in Salalah, he shares some thoughts about traveling in Arab countries that I found interesting.

There is a Moroccan saying about how the food vendors will hand you the business card of the nearest hospital together with your food. That being said, I never had any problems.

Visiting a country that doesn’t exist

According to everyone I met during my trip to Dakhla, I was in Morocco. According to the UN, I was in the country of Western Sahara.
