Youssef Bouni

It is a great pleasure to introduce myself to you, dear guests. My full name is Youssef Bouni. I was born and raised in the desert (southeast of Morocco). I studied the English language for 7 years, and I learned some other languages thanks to the tourists, like Spanish, French, Italy, and a little German. I usually like to discover and explore many things in our rich cultural society: imperial cities, countryside, and a wonderful desert that consists of golden sand dunes, mountains, rivers, and beautiful landscapes.
