So finally, I'm getting psyched for a Travelife to Morocco, coming up next weekend.
It's not that Morocco isn't a destination to look forward to.
In fact, Morocco is one of the most interesting destinations in that part of the world, being a little bit of everything: part European, part African, part Arab and with lots of French flavour thrown in.

EVERY TRIP IS A BOX
It's just that, with my never-ending Travelife, it's really important for me to take each trip in stages.
Basically, all my trips psychologically remain in boxes that are closed, and I only open each box when it's the time to open this box -- and that's also the time that I get excited for the trip.
I want to enjoy each and every trip for what it is, you see, without thinking so much about past or future trips.
In other words, to always be able to see and appreciate what is or who is in front of me.
I ALWAYS WANT TO LIVE IN THE PRESENT
Basically, I want to make sure I live in the present, instead of being in some fabulous place and thinking about what happened before or what's about to come.
This way, I never miss out on any wonderful experience. Or on the wonderful people with me.
MY MOROCCO TRIP BOX IS NOW OPEN
And this is why my Morocco November 2014 trip box remained closed until last weekend. But now it's open and I'm packing for my trip, and really getting excited about it.
We have dinner in a beautiful restaurant almost every night, so I'm thinking about what to wear for dramatic but chilly nights in old and elegant palaces and villas.
MOROCCO, TWICE IN A YEAR
We really had an enjoyable adventure in every sense of the word -- from staying in a luxury fortress in the middle of the desert, to experiencing one of the most beautiful hotels in the world.
So, in a way, it's quite something that I'm going back to Morocco again so soon.
But interestingly, now that my Morocco November 2014 trip box is open, I'm really excited. It'll be a trip without any kind of baggage, so it'll be pure fun.
I also thought I'd do some thinking about the year that was and the year that will be, while I'm there, driving through Morocco's beautiful countryside.
Plus I'll get a second chance to do some things I really enjoyed, and to actually do some things I missed out on, on another trip to Morocco soon, on just another chapter in my never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
