From Egypt with Love
Ever since I could remember learning about the pyramids, I knew someday I wanted to visit Egypt. Often documented as exotic and enchanting, I knew one day I had to get there. Was I worried about the security warnings associated with the Egypt..sure and yes there is no doubt that the 2011 revolution created political dynamism that did not exist before but I was not going to let those fears stop me from experiencing something extraordinary.
After a scheduled break in work, I decided to take a leap in faith and book a ticket to Egypt in what would end up as one of my most incredible journeys into a culture to date. Having recently visited India, Egypt draws a lot of parallels. Equally as vivid and visually powerful in its culture, It’s a country that strives hard to preserve and display its traditional roots. From standing at the foot of the Giza Pyramids to drifting along the calm waters of the Nile or being at the receiving end of the warm smiles of the Egyptian people, it was easy to fall in love with this country. Egypt in all its visual abundance and lets not forget the most amazing Falafel that has ever been created, definitely lived up to its reputation.
I cant say it enough, if you’re looking for a place to emerge yourself into with great food, stunning architecture, and the most passionate people you will ever meet then I couldn’t recommend a place more highly.
I promise Egypt will never be so freely available than right now.
