Almeria

Almeria is a city (and province) in the Andalusia region of Spain. It is located in the southeast area of Spain on the Mediterranean Sea. Almeria is a charming area rich in history. Though it is not as well known as some more popular cities in the area, such as Granada, Seville, or Malaga, its popularity has increased significantly over the years with the growth of its holiday areas. Almeria has over 62 miles of untamed coastline, something that is hard to find on the Mediterranean, and has outstandingly beautiful landscapes, which stands out even in an area of natural beauty. The spectacular beaches with warm waters of the Mediterranean, abundant historic and cultural sites, and large tourist centers makes Almeria a great travel destination.

Casablanca

Casablanca is so much more than a classic Bogart movie with killer one-liners. It is also the largest, most cosmopolitan city in the country of Morocco. Sitting at the economic and industrial heart of this region, Casablanca has a population of approximately four million. Brush up on your high school French before visiting this lively city as it's the main language spoken by the locals. While this is the most liberal and progressive city in Morocco, remember to be cautious in this region of the world with your western views.
