  • At the feet of KingsBy far the longest, hottest day so far has been today's marathon excursion to the Valley of the Kings and Karnak. While both were crawling with tourists and it was by no means the 'Carter-esque' experience I had in my Posted by karicketts in to infinity... and beyond | Jun 2, 2012
  • Pyramids Of Giza After returning to Alexandria from Siwa and spending the night, we caught a quick 2 hour train south to Cairo. The plan was to then buy our onward ticket for the same day to Aswan (12+ Posted by ttbwarren in Blair & Stacey's World Tour | Jun 2, 2012
  • River GodIt should be compulsory to travel the Nile on a boat. Having survived Cairo we were not convinced that the "Nile riverboat cruise" would be up to much. After Cairo, I had visions of 1970's decor and a lot of Posted by karicketts in to infinity... and beyond | Jun 1, 2012
  • Walk like an EgyptianMy poor wee men have been driven from pillar to post over the last week. My parents in Law arrived with us on the 19th, and since then we've covered the whole cross-section of Lebanese antiquities. From Tyr to Byblos Posted by karicketts in to infinity... and beyond | Jun 1, 2012
  • EgyptThe flight from India to Cairo, Egypt was $758 ouch. The flight was 4h30m with one layover. I cannot believe i am in africa right now, i dont remember the last time i've been this happy. Going to Africa has Posted by rachelribeiro in My dream trip around the world | Jun 1, 2012
  • CairoOnce we landed in Egypt, I went straight to my hotel room and slept. The plane landed at 1:20am, but I didn’t get to my hotel room until about 2:00 am, so I was quite tired, especially after the Posted by nataliecarlone in My Dream Trip around the World | May 31, 2012
  • Day 245 – The War GravesAlexandria had a lot more to offer, but we had little time to take in and that morning we ate a last breakfast in our hotel before filling Redvers’ tank and setting off for El Alamein. North Africa was a Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Day 244 – Another Wonder of the Ancient WorldThe news of our visas filled us with relief and excitement. Finally we could wash Egypt from our skin and our hair; we would be free and adventuring again. With such good news we immediately set about organising our ferry Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Day 243- Alexandria and the Upside Down WomanFinally we said our farewell to Salma Campsite and to Cairo; a city modern in its desires and offerings but beset by an attitude to litter that is as disgusting as it is thoughtless. The city wallows in its own Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Day 242 – Tour Companies and Visa ExtensionsOur plans really didn’t extend to a route that did not involve Libya’s Mediterranean coastline. The ferry from Egypt’s Port Said to Turkey was expensive and according to reports, the inclusion of overlanders was at great conflict with the desire Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Day 241 – Closed EmbassiesThe Libyan Embassy was to prove to offer nothing other than dreams and disappointment. It was closed and offered a familiar déjà-vu which we did not care much to prolong. We turned tail and returned to our internet cafe where Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Day 240 – An Egyptian SupperSamer, one of the pretty young ladies we’d met at the Opera gardens five days previous had been keeping in touch with Laura via text message and had asked would we like to visit for dinner with her family. We Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Day 239 – Recouping our IntestinesWith recovering but fatigued gastro intestinal tracts we spent the day reading and then watching an entire box set that we’d acquired on DVD back in Malawi; a country who that very day had announced it was legalising homosexuality. Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Day 238 – The Falafel FandangoThe second of our two days with Ammr went much as the first, in just a few hours we, or rather, Ammr and his team, treated over seventy horses, placated at least three growling owners, one of whom was Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Day 237 – The Brooke Hospital for HorsesSaving lives; that was what we had planned for the day, saving lives. Our taxi pulled into a Gizan back street beneath the Pyramids. We were at the Ahmed Foula Stables. Mr Foula was a gentleman who owned forty horses, Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Day 236 – Got Any Work?We journeyed again through the metro only to find a Libyan Embassy closed to the world. We’d return on Sunday, let sleeping dogs lie, for a while at least. We found an internet cafe and began to make plans for Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Day 235 – “The Park Is Closed”The previous night’s dinner had been relaxing; whilst the stars twinkled and the mosquitoes hummed a relentless ode to war we sat and drank with new friends. Laura slowly came to reveal her lapse of concentration with the most symbolic Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | May 30, 2012
  • Siwa Writing this blog has always been a challenge. As soon as I get caught up, I get behind again as there is always something new to write about. We've really been on the move in Egypt a Posted by ttbwarren in Blair & Stacey's World Tour | May 30, 2012
  • Warsaw, Poland to Cairo, EgyptAs usual I got all of my bags and things and I headed to the Warsaw airport. The flight that I was able to book was a one way trip from Warsaw to Cairo, Egypt. The cost of the flight Posted by ja55ie in My Dream Trip around the World | May 26, 2012
  • Alexandria With our new friend driving us we left St. Katherine's and headed south and back to the coast to the resort town of Sharm El Sheikh. Our main objective to travel to Sharm was of course Posted by ttbwarren in Blair & Stacey's World Tour | May 26, 2012
  • Tourismusmaschine Abu SimbelDa ich nicht gleich vom ersten Taxifahrer ausgenommen werden möchte, beschließe ich in Assuan zum Hotel zu laufen. Fatal, denn es sind 40 °C, die Sonne brennt und die Frisur klebt am Schädel, denn ich bin nach kurzem klitschnass. Egal, Hotel Posted by Jenlain in Andreas' passage | May 24, 2012
  • Schwierige Passage nach AssuanDie Reise ins Tourismusland am Nil erweist sich als schwierig. Unsere kleine Reisegruppe sitzt am Busbahnhof in Kharga auf den Bus nach Assuit wartend. Wir haben uns beim Ticketverkäufer informiert, Tickets gibt es an Bord, ein Bus kommt, der Ticketve Posted by Jenlain in Andreas' passage | May 24, 2012
  • Die letzte Oase: Kharga.Wir verlassen das geniale und an Ereignissen nicht arme Negoom Hotel. Mit dem Taxi geht es in die nächste Oase: Kharga. Der Fahrer ist ein angespannter und hinterlistiger Gauner. Als wir aber alle Angebote ablehnen und er sein Geschäft in Gefahr Posted by Jenlain in Andreas' passage | May 24, 2012
  • Die kleine Reisegruppe dreht auf: Party.Nach langer Suche finden wir ein geniales Hotel, faire Preise und guter Service. Die Stimmung steigt ins Unermessliche und Kaffe und Tee von Suzy sowie Coke veranlassen uns eine Party zu feiern... Diese mündet nicht zuletzt darin, dass wir "dare or Posted by Jenlain in Andreas' passage | May 24, 2012
