Egypt

Hands down one of the best holidays I’ve been on.

Who wouldn’t love spending 10 days with your better half lounging by the beach, working on your tan with all inclusive food and drinks and the occasional spa treatment or boat ride to islands such as the aptly named “Paradise Island”. Count me in!

Based in a resort in Hurghada by the Red Sea, days were spent by the pool or the beach and nights were spent venturing into town and trying not to get persuaded to buy Souvenirs (which might I add we were terrible at!). Generally it was too hot to do much during the day that didn’t involve submerging yourself in water! But 2 out of the 10 days we decided to commit ourselves to doing a bit of the run-of-the-mill touristy things. Which I don’t regret one bit!

First day trip to Luxor to see Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings and the second day trip to Cairo to see the Cairo museum, the Great Sphinx and of course the Pyramids.

Despite the fact that these two trips ranged from a 15 hour to a 22 hour day, I wouldn’t change it for the world! I got to see actual mummies, take a trip down the Nile, check out Tutankhamun’s treasures and climb under a pyramid! Booyah! Take me back!
