We asked traveler Christa, “Without thinking, what is the first interaction that you can remember when stepping foot into Morocco?”
Her response: “The symphony of colors.”
“We have heard so much about Morocco, so we were curious to see the landscape and meet the people.
First, we made a guided mountain bike trip through the southern part of the Atlas with snow-covered peaks, the impressive Saghro Mountains, and the beautiful Oases.... and it was fantastic.
Afterwards, we took a rest in Marrakech.
Finally, we found THAT fabric we were looking for: a beautiful fabric - thick and elegant - in a tiny shop in Marrakech with a typical Moroccan pattern. The two ladies from our Riad told us the patterns are used for cushions and in upholstering furniture.”

Thanks for the Mor-rockin’ fabric find Christa!
Here’s to knowing there is Mor than one way of doing things & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

The Middle East is known for its ancient history, vast deserts, and religious roots.
From being caught in the pyramid-dle of history in Cairo, to taking in the Israeli great views of Jerusalem, to resting on the Abu’ndant sands of Abu Dhabi.
It’s been 8 years since the idea for Taaluma Totes was born while on a life-changing trip to Uganda.
Since then, we’ve been able to fund 41 microloans for small business owners living in Uganda.
From Moses, a 24-year-old coffee farmer who used his loan to buy mulch.
Taaluma travelers have had a very gouda time in Holland over the years.
From getting caught in a Holland-daze over the beauty of the land (and to becoming a big fan of the windmills), to discovering the magical world of Nether-Netherland, to having a wheely good time petal-ing around the city.
