We arrive in London (briefly), then quickly travel south for three days of sun, beach and (hopefully great) food in Barcelona. I haven't been to Barcelona in nearly 20 years, but I remember it being a lot of fun, and more interesting than Madrid.

September 1st we'll be attending Julie and Nicole's wedding (see below), then off to Marrakech, Morocco for three days in the Medina. September 5-7 we're taking an overland tour through the Atlas mountains, culminating in an overnight camel-trek into the Sahara. We have one more night in Marrakech and return to London on September 8th. We'll be back in the US on September 9 (our flight leaves at 10:00AM and arrives in San Francisco at 1:00PM; thankfully, its a short three hour flight).

We arrive in Morocco the day after the start of Ramadan, so I suspect things will be a bit quiet. Most of the locals flee the heat, but I'm hoping its really not too bad. Famous last words. After visiting Turkey 3 years ago, I'm excited to go back and explore another Muslim country. I remember the food was amazing, but the carpets...not so much.
We'll sending updates from the road, so check back often, or subscribe to the newsfeed or make sure you're signed up for blog notices.
Many thanks to Vince, Ana and Matt who are tag-team babysitting the dog during our absence. Happy travels!
