14 days in Spain & Morocco

Now that we kicked off the first day of summer, I’m getting ready to pull those summer dresses out of my closet. Certainly not to wear any of them in San Francisco any time soon as the summer time here is usually gloomy and foggy… but because I’m leaving for a vacation in less than a week. What started out as a trip to just Barcelona, soon evolved into Ibiza, Sevilla and Marrakech. For the last few months, I’ve spent week nights after work and a few Sundays planning out places to eat, stay and explore. Here’s my plan to date:
