Our travel style as a couple is one that I feel (or at least hope) is relatable to many of my readers. While I wouldn’t go as far to call us crazy couponers, we definitely aim to maximize the travel rewards on our Card each year to ensure we can get the most out of our next vacation. According to a recent Amex survey, 3 out of 4 Canadians are travel bargain hunters, so I suppose we fit right in ;)
I’ve recently partnered with Amex Canada and their Gold Rewards Card to talk about My Travel Style. What’s great about this Card, is that it’s perfect for every type of traveller. Whether you book last minute or plan ahead, we can charge any travel to the Card then pay for it with points up to 12 months after our trip or purchase.
I feel like we’re constantly sharing a peek at our travels through Instagram, Snapchat and every other social media channel but I rarely get around to creating a travel diary of the places we visit. I thought it would be a great occasion to show our travel style through a behind-the-scenes look at the cities we visited through our recent tour of Morocco.

Third and final pit stop in our tour of Morocco was Marrakech. The drive from Fez to Marrakech is a bit brutal (6 hours) and despite having intentions of stopping over in Casablanca for an afternoon, we decided to skip it and just head on south.
I found the shopping to be THE best in Marrakech. I stocked up on straw totes, embellished clutches, linens, scarves, rugs, Moroccan wedding blankets and more. Tip – consider shipping what you buy back with the Moroccan mail service. It was more reasonable to send back a suitcase equivalent of stuff via air than carry it with us on the plane to Barcelona (our next leg of the trip).
