Egypt, an unforgettable trip: Hurghada

This is a remade. I erased by mistake. After a long drive from Luxor, we got to Hurghada, a resort town on Egypt’s Red Sea shore. The first impression of Hurghada is like a typical Caribbean resort town but in the middle of the desert. After checking in and getting our room at the hotel, Movenpick…

The Key of Life

I had bought, during my trip to Egypt, a couple of souvenirs, one of which was “The Key of Life.” I’m sure that many of you know about it better than I do, but for those who don’t, I will explain it a little. “The Key of Life” is one of the most meaningful symbols of ancient Egypt. It is also called “The Key of the…

Egypt, Unforgettable Trip: Hot air balloon flight.

  Before leaving to Hurghada, we had one last activity to do in Luxor: a hot air balloon ride. The driver from the hot air balloon company picked us up at 3 a.m. On the way to the place, he picked up more travelers. Then, he took us to a pier from which we boarded a small boat…

Egypt, an Unforgettable Trip: Luxor

Since we had only one place to visit in Edfu, we sailed to Luxor in the afternoon. We have a relaxing evening. At dinner, we went to the sundeck. The staff had BQQ style buffet. The food tasted fresh and beyond delicious. We went to bed early because we knew the kind of day that will…

Egypt, an Unforgettable Trip: Edfu

After a smooth sail, the ship docked at Edfu. It was a beautiful night with a clear sky and a perfect weather. The journey didn’t feel long because we were chatting with our cruise mate.  We got to Edfu around 11 p.m., and a big street party was going on. I like I said in my…

Egypt, An Unforgettable Trip: Aswan and Kom Ombo.

    The third day of visits. After a relaxing night at the cruise, we got up early to take advantage of the breakfast. Before I say anything else, I have to say that, although the boat was old, the room was super comfortable, and the food was exquisite. The day was filled with places to…

Egypt, an Unforgettable Trip: Abu Simbel

Second day in Egypt: After an exhausting first day, during which we visited different sites in Cairo, we went to the hotel to shower, eat, and pack our belongings because we had an early flight to the southern city of Aswan. A call from the front desk woke us up. They called to let us know that it was…

Egypt an Unforgettable Trip

When I said that I was going to Egypt, no one believed it. People believe everything that they see on TV, so they thought that I was going to get kidnapped as soon as I arrive. It did not concern me what people said about that country. Since my budget was limited, we started planning 11 months before the…
