Egypt – Land of the Pharaohs
15 February to 12 March 2017
In 1994, I was serving with the United Nations in Bosnia and decided to take my two weeks leave in Egypt. With a few rolls of film and a cheap 35mm camera, I spent time in Cairo, Hurghada and did the Nile cruise. In all, I took 118 pictures.
I’ve always wanted to go back and take 1000.
The Eldertreks tour is the most comprehensive tour of Egypt that I was able to find and it includes visits to areas I did not see in 1994 including Alexandria, the western desert, Abu Simbel and the Sinai. I wrote this tale as I travelled and it is very detailed. You can start with the Travel Days or navigate to individual days via the Table of Contents.
