Worrall Travel R's - Kicking the Bucket List

My photo

We are the Worrall Travel R's Roz and Russ Worrall. Our goal before we "kick the bucket" is to see as much of the world as we are able, learn about world cultures, experience making friends around the world, and share goodwill and what we learn with others. WE HOPE YOU JOIN US VIA THE BLOG ON OUR TRAVELS.

We started our world travels in 1969 in VW camper van in the USA, Canada, and Europe, but didn't actively blog about our travels until 2009 aboard our sailing vessel SV Worrall Wind, a 44 ft Nauticat Ketch.  On September 5, 2009 we left San Francisco and took a left at the Golden Gate to Explore the World.

From to Sea to Land
After almost 4 years of cruising Mexico and the South Pacific, we sold our beloved boat in Australia, 2013. The Worrall Travel R's are continuing our travels around by many other means of conveyance -boats,trains, planes, sometimes camels, elephants, rickshaws, and hot air balloons.. 

Russ is a retired engineer, optometrist, professor from U.C. Berkeley. Roz is a retired computer programmer/analyst, educator, (teacher, administrator, professional developer). 

Our Mantra:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
~ Mark Twain

Friendship Force International, World Conference WTRD 38-39, September 16-17, 2016


Friendship Force International Conference 2016, 
Marrakech, Morocco

Friday, September 16, 2016

Today was the opening plenary session of Friendship Force, International  It started with music and ended with belly dancing,




In between there were interesting conference sessions,











luscious desserts...hence the need for belly dancing,






































we toured historical Marrakech,












the souk,






























the main square filled with mesmerizing music for weaving snakes,



 henna artists,



and souks with monkeys.



and carriage ride,




food wagons in the center square,











and a fine dinner in the old Medina.

This morning prior to the workshop sessions 8:00-8:45, we had the opportunity to participate in a belly dancing lesson.  During the lesson, my phone buzzed.  My belly vibes had crossed the Atlantic Ocean, and our daughter-in-law Jessica had received them and gone into labor.....well, this probably would have happened anyway.



By 10:15 we got news that our third grandchild, another grand-daughter, was born.  She was 9 lbs 5 oz, only 3 oz. lighter than her Dad was 39 years ago.   Despite the fact that our conference sessions were very interesting, we were just too excited an preoccupied to pay as close attention as we should have.  When we finish our time in Morocco, we will be heading to Vermont to meet our new grand baby.  Can't wait!

Russ also gets his chance to belly dance.
