..... another day of international travel. Be Happy

I was up at 6AM to head out to Marrakesh's Menara International Airport for my ¾ of an hour flight to Casablanca's Mohammed V International Airport. After a 4 hour layover, it was then on into Dubai for five days or so.

Upon arrival at the Marrakesh airport, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had been upgraded to Business Class on Royal Air Maroc Flight AT402, which saw me take full advantage of their business class lounge facilities.

With time changes and close to eight hours in the air, it was nearly 2AM by the time I arrived to check in at the Holiday Inn Express Jumeirah.

Yeah it was a long day of travel ..... but it sure beats working. Be Happy
