Nov 14, 2013 - All good things must come to an end......

We are enjoying the last few days in Egypt at a fabulous resort on the Red Sea. I don't get where the name comes from as the water is crystal clear but I heard it is because of the reddish rocks in the surrounding mountains. The temperature outside is in the mid 30s and the water close to 27. It really is lovely here and a great way to end this adventure. Actually the past week has been relaxing as we cruised down the Nile for 4 days before flying to Sharm El Sheik. When we look at the map and see that we have been in every corner of this...

Sharm Smile Tour

Jan 13, 2013 - Parte 7 - Welcome to Red Sea

Saimos de Luxor e fomos para Sharm el Sheik. Foram quase 19 horas de viagem, passamos pelo Canal de Suez, uma area um pouco tensa, com fiscalizacao militar e td, mas valeu a pena. Sharm eh a Las Vegas do Egito.Mas quando digo Las vegas, eh pq eh qiase isso mesmo! Sharm fica na peninsula do Sinai, no litoral do Mar Vermelho, eh um reduto de resorts, onde os europeus vem passar as ferias e fugir do frio da Europa. Um lugar maravilhoso para mergulho e cheio de locais paradisiacos. Restaurntes luxuosos, cafes, resorts, festas e um pouco de...

Apr 26, 2012 - Dehab, Egypt

We had a bit of a problem getting to Sharm El Sheik, the ferry across the Red Sea was suspended, the planes from Luxor to Sharm flew back to Cairo 1st and were expensive. We hired a car& driver to take us to Hurghada then flew to Sharm. Stayed 1 night in Sharm it’s a very upscale and not our style. Sharen & Keith played in the Red Sea and they even persuaded Bernie to dip her feet in the water. It was lovely !! The next day we quickly packed up and headed up the coast to Dahab where we found the Jasmine Inn right on the beach which only...

Nov 15, 2010 - Adventures Across Egypt

My adventure didn’t start well. My flight from San Francisco to Paris went swimmingly however in Paris I was delayed for 7.5 hours due to ‘technical difficulties’. I eventually made it to Cairo after nearly 48 hours of travelling to a hotel that looked as if it hadn’t been cleaned in about 48 days. I was so tired didn’t care, I crashed out on the bed for a good 9 hours. The trip had been in the planning for about a year. I should point out to you now this was not a 5 star Sharm el Sheikh holiday, I booked one nights’ accommodation in Cairo...

Quick 7 day holiday to get away from the scottish weather. They are right - they Pyramid's are really just big triangle things in the middle of the desert. Funny thing is they are just on the outskirts of Cairo, do you can be driving through the streets then out of one corner of the window you see these massive pyramids..... quite cool. Hotel pool was Amazing.

Apr 4, 2010 - The Lost City Of Petra

Sunday 4th April Day 85 As we steamed up to the anchorage in the headwaters of the Gulf of Aqaba, four countries are visible: Egypt on the port beam, on the port bow Israel; on the starboard bow and beam, Jordan; and on the starboard quarter Saudi Arabia. What a history this area has. We arrived in Aqaba, having our breakfast on the balcony to a beautiful sunny morning. We had breakfast on the balcony as we had an early start, our tour to Petra would take ten hours. We were met by our very friendly guide, who gave us a lot of information....

Jan 19, 2010 - Swimming in the Red Sea

Today was a day of snorkelling - the Aussies and some Brits took over the far end of the beach - strangely where the food and grog were located - much to the disgust of our fellow Russian guests. Note to the Russians - if you dont say Please Thank You and Smile - you don't get A class treatment. The Egyptians LOVED the Aussies as we treated them civilly and fairly! Anyway - went snorkelling - bought a disposable underwater camera hopefully it worked and went underwater snap happy. One of the other girls had a LUMIX and was able to...

Jan 18, 2010 - Stormy weather

Supposed to go to St Catherines Monastery at the base of Mount Sinai but trip was cancelled due to a one in 20 year storm that hit Jordan, Israel and Egypt. It started at about 9.30p.m. I was finally on the internet when I heard the rumblings of thunder - mind you being so close to the Gaza strip I had to look outside to make sure there were no missile fire heading our way. Happy that we weren't under attack I had gotten back onto the internet when there was an almighty thunder clap directly above. I literally fell off the chair. Sian was...
