The whitest sand beach in the world
I made the mistake of assuming Australia, like most European countries, would issue a visa at the border. When checking in for my flight to Sydney out of Frankfurt, I had quite the scare when they notified me the computer didn't show me as having a visa. Luckily the woman directed me to another counter where the airline sold me an e-visa (They jacked up the price though, and they definetely didn't input my info properly). US Residents, even tourists, must get a visa (ETA - Electronic Travel Authority) before being allowed on their flight.

Bug Bites on the arm of a traveler in Morocco
Not going to claim that everyone will be attacked so badly by the mosquitos in Morocco, but on a recent trip I found myself with bug bites all over my body. My friend seemed to be fine, but in 1 week I accumulated more than 70 bug bites in clumps all over my arms, hands, feet, legs, and even face, anything exposed. Just a warning to those susceptible to bug bites, might want to consider bringing some mosquito repellant on your next trip to Morocco.
