Travelers Winter 2018

Zack Geiger ’13 and Andy Burns ’15 took a three-day tour through the Sahara Desert near Merzouga, Morocco. The pair rode camels into the desert, snapping a picture on the sands with their Tiger Rag on the way to a nomadic campsite. “It was an exhilarating trip made all the more exciting by angry, spitting camels and our guide quitting on day two after a dispute with the driver. It truly was the trip of a lifetime,” Burns says.
