My name is Mandy, a Canadian living in Marrakech, Morocco. Back in 2011 I decided to swap Canadian public service life for a five-month stint in Marrakech where I planned to learn French before returning to the public service. Thankfully I’ve not had to return just yet. I’m growing my public relations agency Say Something Communication with a focus on arts and culture, tourism and corporate clients; and my Tasting Marrakech food and cultural tours. When I’m not working on a project or event in Marrakech, you’ll find me freelance writing for magazines, attending one of the festivals throughout Morocco, travelling, relaxing at one of my favourite cafes/bars, or listening to one of my favourite podcasts.
With travel, arts and culture in my DNA, I blog about Marrakech and the kingdom and the life of a solopreneur and explorer in Morocco. Throw in the odd blog post about travels abroad and lifestyle decisions, because after all, this little blog started when I decided to make the move. So check back often for updates from the life of a curious solopreneur in Marrakech.
In June 2010 I travelled to Morocco and had the trip of a lifetime. The people, the music, the food, the landscapes, the sights and sounds and the lifestyle have inspired me to return. So in January 2011, I arrived with two bags. No job. No apartment. But things have a way of working themselves out and for the most part I love it.
Proof that things will also work themselves out if you are following your dreams!
