Top travel memory: “I checked into a lovely guesthouse on the outskirts of the beautiful blue-tinted village Chefchaouen, Morocco, with a group of friends, and despite our various attempts at broken Arabic, French and Spanish, the language barrier with the staff was tough. What finally united us? The world's lingua franca: Bollywood. We had a blast staying up late by the fireplace with Aziz and Abdou Noor, belting out classic hits from Indian movies.”
