Hello Amanda,

Thanks for your information on Semana Santa in Seville. I am planning to go and experience it next year there 2024. I have been to Spain 3X but never to Seville nor Cordoba. I usually custom-design all my trips how I want to roll it. I'm a world traveler with a penchant for the exotics, places not on most peoples' radars. I've been there and loved all of it. While Spain is not exotic, experiencing Semana Santa would be awesome.

I would like to still see the important sites of Seville during the Semana Santa week so I'm wondering if it's easy enough to get in & out of the city. I still want to be able to see the pasos & procession from a balcony or rooftop. A luxury hotel with ability to view the processions (preferably a balcony) but not necessarily in the thick of the crowd close to the Cathedral. Are all the important sites open during the week? Are all the tapas & restaurants open too? I read somewhere that restos are closed on Holy Week there.

Would appreciate your thoughts on this. Thank you very much.

I am an American but a citizen of the world! And yes, one of my most memorable trip was to Morocco with 12 friends. I always recommend to my friends to visit Morocco. It's a gem!

Most things were open however expect massive crowds. That was the biggest thing. It's a very fun environment with lots of people, lots of places that are open. The historical sites may have more adjusted times so you'd just need to have a little bit of a plan if there were things you really didn't want to miss.

Hi Amanda. I just have a quick question for you regarding the 90-day maximum stay for the tourist visa for Americans: Does that reset when you leave the country AND will the Moroccan authorities question you if you do it multiple times in one year? My job allows me to work from a distance; I know that I will have to return to the states 3-4 times in a year. I was thinking of this method rather than get a "carte d'immatriculation." Thanks in advance.

Officially, you're allowed 180 days out of the year. Unofficially many many people go in and out regularly. You may not be eligible for a residency card (as there are only certain categories) so this might be the only way to do it if you plan to go back and forth.

Hello! I noticed your post on what to do during a layover in Frankfurt, Germany. However, I was wondering if you need a visa to leave the Frankfurt airport during a layover? Thanks for the insight!

Depends on your passport country but for many you do not.

Hi! We are visiting Marrakech with a group of friends in March. I have used your blog extensively for planning activities. So useful! Thank you so much. I am finding it hard to choose a nice spa/hammam though. Would you be able to name a few that you have been to that you’ve liked and why? For the moment I’m trying to decide between the Mythic Oriental Spa and Les Bains de Marrakech. Thank you so much for your time, Seanti

Hllow my inside friend in Morocco. Love to read you. We were 1 day to Tangier and fell in love... the place, the sights, the people... We are planning to come back very soon, and we are curious to see the Roses Festival at Kalaat M'Gouna. How can i know when it will be celebrated?

Generally it's in May but really depends on when the rose harvest happens. They don't typically set dates.
