Egypt, 2007

My first trip outside the GCC countries.

I did a lot of research because I kept on hearing that it’s not safe to travel to Egypt especially for women, and alone.   The plan was supposed to be with colleagues, but they beg off a few months before the trip.

I survived my 10-day stay in Egypt though.   I had a great time exploring Cairo, side-tripping to Alexandria, sun setting at the Luxor’s Nile riverbank, and the overnight trip to Sharm El Sheikh and Saint Catherine.

Been planning on going back to Luxor, hopefully soon. 😊
