The Best Vacation Ever....

Egypt has always been one of those places that I dreamed of going to... but never thought about how to really make it happen. It's also one of those places that gets the side eye.... like "is it safe to go there??" If I listen to the news, the answer is no... but I decided to listen to my heart instead.

Fortunately, I had two friends that also felt a tug at their heartstrings for Egypt. We saw the reports about terror attacks, and the travel warnings... but we were not deterred. If anything, these warnings just made us more determined. So in 2015.... we made it happen....

In case you also wish to travel to Egypt, here are a few...

Travel Tips

1. Check Travel Advisories: Pay attention to travel warnings, but take them with a grain of salt. You may hear of dangerous riots or protests... but it's very rare that you will "stumble" upon one. Stay alert, but if you're not an idiot (or a part of some freak accident) you should be fine...

Giza Pyramids

I highly recommend the Camel Rides

2. Book a Tour Guide: I'm usually all for winging it, going it alone, rolling with the tide, que sera sera... but Egypt is not one of those go with the flow places. It's nice to have someone to show you the ropes, explain the customs and give you the lay of the land. Not that you have to let them plan every single second of your trip, but it's nice to have a friendly face to call on. It's also nice to have someone who can share with you, in detail, the history of their country and cultures. (I suggest Memphis Tours, their service is top notch and their also provided security and wifi in our van)
