Review: The Pearl Lounge, Marrakech International Airport, Marrakech, Morocco I had heard lots of horror stories about the Marrakesh airport. Most of the reports online recommended arriving at least 3 hours in advance of the flight. The issue appeared to be long queues and bureaucratic checks. At about T-180, we departed the hotel. A taxi was only 70 Moroccan Dirhams and we were dropped off in less than 10 minutes. The Le… Read More

Review: Pearl Lounge, Arrivals Hall, Marrakech, Morocco We entered the building and walked towards immigration. There is a strange arrivals lounge available to Priority Pass members called the Pearl Lounge so I thought we could go check it out for interest’s sake.

We parked at her aerospace employer parking lot and walked up to the… Read More

Once at Hertz, there was a very thorough check of the condition of the car (including the spare tire) prior to being presented to the check-out cashier. All was in… Read More

It was another 3 AM wake up with a 10 minute snooze this morning. I had the house all to myself today as MrsWT73 went down to Atlanta with her work colleagues a day earlier. I left the house at 3:45 AM and took a quick spin through the local 24 hour McD drive through for an Egg McMuffin prior to hitting Highway 99 for a 30 minute drive up to Vancouver… Read More
