Rabat - If anyone were to look at the search history on my computer for the past four months, they would come across a lot of Lonely Planet handbooks and “Traveling Alone for Dummies” articles. I’ll admit that I did my extensive research on Morocco, as any good student, journalist, and traveler should do, before even taking a peek into the black hole that is planning a trip like this.
