    Hey there – really enjoying reading your blog, and the casual, friendly approach you’re taking. Noticed Morocco’s on your wishlist 😉 I’m working at the moment with a local NGO in Southern Morocco on the development of an income generating enterprise with and for a group of women who are mothers of kids who visit our centre (who’d otherwise be on the streets). It’s bloody fantastic this country, for so many reasons – I highly recommend it. Feel free to swing past my blog at if you want to see some pretty pictures of Maroc, read about the centre or travel throughout the country, or check out my opinion pieces on development practices and methodologies as contextualised by my work here. Cheers from a fellow traveller/development geek! BM

    May I suggest that you add a few more South Pacific nations to your wishlist, perhaps Vanuatu, Samoa and Niue?
