As a business professional (I hold an MBA in Project Management) I understand the importance of word of mouth advertising and the value of a strong online presence for brands and businesses. Through online marketing I was able to build a successful business from nothing to a six figure business in just over a year. This website is an extension of myself, bringing together the things that I love and care about to share with others who have similar passions.
MarocMama is a blog that helps travelers connect with people and places on a more authentic level, have experiences outside their comfort zones, and explore the world through food. While readers have been coming to the MarocMama blog for 10 years to find advice and expertise about travel in Morocco, it also offers content from non-bucket-list destinations around the world and specializes in culinary travel. MarcocMama offers travel stories that bring readers along on the journey, honest and practical advice to help travelers plan their own adventures, and traditional recipes from around the world.
