  • Cairo...more like Caro (Days 87-90)November 22nd to 25th After doing some backtracking backpacking, we spend a quick night in Rome at a comfy BnB right beside the train station. A half hour direct train ride lands us at the Rome airport for our flight to Posted by Gary Whitaker in It's all about the journey! | Nov 27, 2012
  • From Tutankhamen to Tooting-car-men.If you had asked me after three days if I was enjoying Egypt, I would have said yes. The Egyptians that we encountered were friendly, courteous and so appreciative to have you in their country that they would do anything Posted by kayles in The Orsum Adventures | Nov 22, 2012
  • Adventure to the famous PyramidsI was suppose to write one big blog last night but the net was so slow uploading the pics,I went to sleep. Yes, the chairs in my room are cool.I put it there,well,I rearranged the house to my liking.The girls sit Posted by wasiela in almasrijourneysyria | Nov 13, 2012
  • An oasis called Sharm El SheikhOur first impressions of Sharm El Sheikh mirrored Dorothy when she landed in Oz – it certainly didn’t feel like we were in Egypt anymore! Just over an hour from Alexandria but worlds away, we arrived to a Las Vegas Posted by 270days in Around the world in 270 days | Nov 10, 2012
  • Alexandria by the seaOur tour now over, we headed north for a few days to Egypt’s old capital of Alexandria on the Mediterranean Sea where we had visions of having a few relaxing days by the hotel’s pool and bar and leisurely taking Posted by 270days in Around the world in 270 days | Nov 8, 2012
  • The temple trail from Aswan to LuxorOf all the countries we have travelled to this year, Egypt has possibly given us the greatest value from all the travel books, magazines and websites we have pored over for the last decade. The pyramids, the sphinx, the Valley Posted by 270days in Around the world in 270 days | Nov 5, 2012
  • Egypt lifeI think all my descriptive words sums up Egypt really well. One needs millions upon millions of patience to live here.(if that's even possible) Alhumdulillah, we have survived 5 months here and I think we will be here for a while unless Posted by wasiela in almasrijourneysyria | Nov 3, 2012
  • Egypt by any meansWe knew a trip to Egypt was going to expose us to ancient history, amazing architectural wonders and a culture worlds away from what we are accustomed to at home. What we hadn’t counted on was the adventure of how Posted by 270days in Around the world in 270 days | Nov 1, 2012
  • Walk like an EgyptianNothing can prepare you for the onslaught of Cairo. Flying in over the city gave us an insight as to what we would encounter for the next few days – lots and lots of people in a confined space, completely Posted by 270days in Around the world in 270 days | Oct 26, 2012
  • CairoWe were a little apprehensive in making the decision to head to Cairo, with Aus Gov Smart Traveller website advising against any non-essential travel to the country. Egypt has always been so high on the list so we decided to Posted by KPad in Possibly lost, probably having fun... | Sep 4, 2012
  • Aswan, Start of a Nile Cruise and the Temples & Tombs Tour I know I've written about it before but I am very proud about what great travelers Jesse and Nathan have become. Of course, they've had a lot of practice at this point, but as a parent who lov Posted by TooMuchLuggage in Around the World in 172 Days | Jul 16, 2012
  • 4 AM Arrival, Egyptian Revolution and Cairo HaircutsIf there is still glamour in travel there was none of it to be found on our 12:30 AM, delayed to 1 AM Egypt Air flight from Istanbul to Cairo. Too late to stay awake, too short a flight to Posted by TooMuchLuggage in Around the World in 172 Days | Jul 16, 2012
  • Diving Dahab To many travellers, Egypt conjures up an image of deserts and temples; dry, desolate and ancient. But once you hit the Red Sea this image vanishes. The Red Sea boasts some of the worlds great Posted by remoteman in The Med and more | Jul 10, 2012
  • Daydreaming in DahabWe took a 9 hour bus ride from Cairo, with about six check points along the way. The first of which we thought was a refreshments break, so we just stay on board. Next minute, there is a police guy Posted by two_pukeko in Two Pukeko in a Ponga Tree | Jul 4, 2012
  • Totally Ruined In the grand scheme of things, the Egyptians were fairly competent builders. Not many ancient civilisations are able to match the sheer size and number of monumen Posted by remoteman in The Med and more | Jul 3, 2012
  • Anarchy and the Pyramids “May 2nd, 2012 – 5 people are killed in the Abbisaya district of Cairo as protests against the military council continue.” We watched the news anxiously in our Tunis hotel room, 4 hours Posted by remoteman in The Med and more | Jun 25, 2012
  • Cairo Right now it's kinda hard to just pick up where I left off back in Egypt... it already seems like another world entirely. We're both absolutely just loving Tanzania!! What an amazing Posted by ttbwarren in Blair & Stacey's World Tour | Jun 10, 2012
  • Exit from EgyptI don't like Sharm el Sheik. My Husband will be so disappointed. He thinks it's the best place on earth, but he is a dive nut, and his memories of Sharm were made when he was young and single so Posted by karicketts in to infinity... and beyond | Jun 7, 2012
  • Leaving CairoIch habe es nochmal nach Kairo geschafft, auch wenn ich in dem Zug erst gebacken und dann fast erfroren bin. Die Klimaanlage war defekt, entweder aus oder volle Leistung. Ein Großraumabteil mit bibbernden Ägyptern und mittendrin ich. Jeder klaubt sich Posted by Jenlain in Andreas' passage | Jun 6, 2012
  • Westufer von LuxorWie der letzte Eintrag zeigt, ich bin bereits in Luxor. Luxor ist ein schrecklicher Ort für einen Touristen, zu denen ich mich zählen muss, gleich wie ich meine Reise auffasse, denn die einheimischen Schlepper definieren mich so. Luxor gleicht dem Posted by Jenlain in Andreas' passage | Jun 6, 2012
  • Tempel und LuxorWas macht man sonst so in Ägypten? Tempel und Gräber besuchen. Ich erspare dem leser die unendliche Anzahl an Fotos von Bauten die in tausend Jahren vermutlich noch immer gleich aussehen. Ein wenig spektakulärer sind die Krokodilsmumien von Kom Ombo. Posted by Jenlain in Andreas' passage | Jun 6, 2012
  • Segelfahrt auf dem Nil mit der FelukkeDie Fahrt auf dem Nil mit einem Segelboot (Felucca) gehört zu den grundlegendsten Ägyptenerfahrungen überhaupt. Wer soetwas nicht macht ist für den Rest seines Lebens unvollständig, mieß gelaunt und überhaupt vollkommen neben der Spur. So oder so ähnlich Posted by Jenlain in Andreas' passage | Jun 6, 2012
  • What up Giza? The excitement really began when we arrived in Egypt, we were looking forward to exploring such a different culture, not knowing quite what to expect. We were met by our hostel's dri Posted by two_pukeko in Two Pukeko in a Ponga Tree | Jun 5, 2012
  • Luxor We made it to Tanzania safe and sound, and I am happy to be writing our first blog post here. Our flight went okay (not a great sleep) and we arrived in Dar Es Salaam at around 7 am Posted by ttbwarren in Blair & Stacey's World Tour | Jun 5, 2012
  • Aswan Well this is it... our last day in Egypt. Tonight we board a plane and cross the equator again and land in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. We finally get winter... not really but technically Posted by ttbwarren in Blair & Stacey's World Tour | Jun 3, 2012
