I’m back from an Egyptian Adventure – visiting pyramids, climbing mountains, exploring ancients tombs and mosques, sleeping in cabs, planes, trains, hostels, & five star hotels, desert camping, camel riding, haggling in the local markets, crossing borders with land mines, & meeting a super awesome blogger (Bibi-Aisha) along with many other really cool people – what an adventure!!!
Also my most intense and exhausting trip too! Normally I spend 2-4 days in each city. This time, aside from Cairo, it was 1 day only! Very very hectic tight schedule! But totally worth it! Travel schedule was something like this.
7pm arrive in Cairio
Explore the Pyramids & Sphinx. 7pm take 6hr taxi ride to Mt. Sinai.
Arrive at Mt. Sinai at 2am, climb it, chill, climb down.
Taxi 4hrs to Taba (Egypt-Israel border crossing).
Spend 3hrs in customs. Drive 20mins through Israel to get to Jordan
Taxi 2hrs to get to Petra
Taxi 90mins to Wadi-Rum
Camp in the desert
Take camels out of Wadi-Rum
Taxi 2hrs to Amman
Fly to Aswan
Taxi 3.5hrs to Luxor
Overnight train (10hrs) to Cairo
Friday – Sunday
Despite the tight schedule we did a TON of stuff. Pretty much everything but sleep ahha….which is probably why it all caught up to me and I got a cold when I got back…..which explains the delay in posting anything about the trip. But I’m better now (mostly) and I finally got all the pics from my friends (just today!). So I’ll be posting more about my trip soon (with pics of course!). I think I’ll break it down like this.
1) Traveling there & Pyramids and Sphinx
2) Mt. Sinai
3) Jordan (Petra & Wadi Rum)
and last but certainly not least
7) The Video
I’m not going to explain what the video is right now. But trust me, you don’t want to miss it. 🙂
