Here at The Style Spread, we just love to go shopping. We love it even more when it’s abroad. You get unique items that you probably wouldn’t have been able to get in your local boutique. In Morocco, these unique items are found at the Moroccan souks.

But don’t worry, we are going to show you how to effectively shop the souk like a Morocco born native.Read More
They say that you’ve become fluent in a language when you know how to speak slang. This isn’t always true since nowadays you can just google the terms or come to a site like this.

Imagine stepping up to the check-in counter, just to hear the agent say, “I’m sorry to inform you but I cannot assign you a seat due to there not being enough seats available; the flight is overbooked. You will have to wait until the end of the flight to determine whether you will be able to fly out today.” This is the worst case scenario imaginable!
Even though this hasn’t happened to me personally, as a former check-in agent, I’ve delivered the bad news more than a couple times.

Where’s your manager?
Word of advice? Don’t take it out on the check-in agent. It’s not their fault and it’s not something against you. It’s just how the airlines work and get their money’s worth.Read More
What exactly is a traveler’s notebook? It’s the original notebook in which we used to document our travels and adventures. This form of documenting has become stagnant since social media sites and the blogosphere set off. But who said we can’t bring it back right?
