OVERVIEW

We travel to Spain and Morocco to enjoy the cultural and religious diversity of this exotic land. We explore the influence of the Moors, Celts, Africans and Arabs as well as the French in Morocco. A rich Christian heritage abounds in Spain. We also consider how modern day Christians fare in these places. Travelling with like-minded people on a culturally rich holiday experience.

Andrea Blake has lived and worked in Morocco for 8 years and has a passion for the country and its people. She is currently working at a Christian Secondary College as a school counsellor. She speaks enough Moroccan Arabic to ensure you will get a good cup of coffee!
