Yes, this is a real picture! Depicted is the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco. Completed in 1993, the largest mosque in Africa was designed by Michel Pinseau, and features a minaret that is 60 stories high, the second tallest in the world. Topping the minaret is a laser, pointing towards Mecca. A total of 105,000 worshippers can gather together for prayer, with 25,000 inside and another 80,000 outside.
Just a regular day at the beach, blue skies, soft sand, the ⛱️🌊 and 🐪 😂🤣. .
It always amazes us how something can be so exciting and out of the ordinary for some and the norm for others. Luca was fascinated by the camels and found it hilarious that they were on the beach. Do camels swim?" He kept asking. .
I also need to tell you how much we love Luca's sun hat @sundayafternoons_hats It is one of the best investments we made for our trip. We love that it travels well compacts so small and doesn't lose its shape, it's light weight, breathable, dries fast, has a neck tie with an automatic safety release, full UV protection and neck flap for full coverage. It has been a life saver in this 45+ degree heat. Luca absolutely loves it and so does mama and papa. We also love the bright blue color we chose so we can spot him easily. .

🇦🇺 Kruger National Park 🌍
Day 2. We have decided to sleep in the park in one of the camping to enjoy the most of it. Budget tent sites are available, a bit worried when you know that there are few animals that like to have a midnight walk in campings... 😅
However, that’s the best to see most of it as you are already in the area at 6am when the gates open!
Today, we have decided to take the « dirty roads » as they like to call it, to avoid the crowd. At the end of the day, our backs where quite painful, but we had the incredible opportunity to live wonderful moment alone with the nature!
These babies hyenas are a great example. And they are much cuter than in the cartoons, right? 😍
🇫🇷 Parc National de Kruger 🌍
Jour 2. Les premiers jours, on a décidé de camper dans les campings dédiés dans le parc afin de profiter au maximum de l’environnement. Une bonne option, mais pas toujours rassurante quand on apprend que certains animaux aiment les baladent nocturnes dans les campings !! 😅
C’est idéal par contre pour être les premiers sur place lorsque les portes ouvrent à 6h le matin.
Aujourd’hui, on a décidé d’emprunter uniquement les routes secondaires afin d’éviter les autres voitures un maximum. Notre dos a bien souffert car ce sont des pistes non goudronnées, mais pas de regret car nous avons vécu des moments magiques seuls avec la nature.
Ces bébés hyènes en sont un parfait exemple. Et ils sont bien plus mignons que dans les dessin animés non ? 😍
