Our two-week tour of Egypt took us as far south as Abu Simbel, which sits eleven miles from the Sudan border, west to the Fayum Oasis and north to Memphis. It was a wonderful trip [...]

What Happens to the Friends You Make Abroad

As you travel around the world, you meet all kinds of people. Some of these people are scum bags, others are God sent.

What I Took to Egypt

And What I Actually Used... Packing clothes for a lengthy trip is one thing. I've already covered that in one of my posts, but packing the odds and ends isn't a piece of cake either. There's a lot of decision making when it comes to packing the stuff you take on a trip. You have [...]

Civil War Re-Enactments

Egypt: Day Two

Egypt: Day Two

January 26, Lake Nasser, Egypt  Today was wonderful. I woke up just before 7.00am and laid in bed reading until breakfast. I'm re-reading the Hunger Games for the fifth time. I can't help myself. It's so good. But! Breakfast was at 8.00am so I couldn't read forever. I had an omelet and cereal with tea. [...]
