A time we cannot Forget in Egypt!

by Mrs Angela England
(Cumbria, UK)

Egypt is the most magucla, wonderful place I have ever visited.

As a child I was fascinated by all the stories of Phareos and Pyramids, wonderful gold artefacts and hidden tombs.

5 years ago I was finally, at the age of 41, lucky enough to visit in person and it exceeded even my wildest dreams.

I have been lucky enough to sail on the Nile, and spend time at Luxor and Aswan.

I have visited Dendera, Cairo, Sakkara, the giza plateau, Abydos and of course all the main sites along the Nile and in Luxor and Aswan.

I have spent very happy family holidays with my husband and daughter there over the past 5 years, but unfortunately we may not be able to afford a trip there this year, and that is making us very sad!.

We have never been lucky enough to visit the North Coast of Egypt, and would value the chance to do so.


My favourite story of our times spent in Egypt is the lucky encounter we had with a taxi driver called Ahmed in Luxor. His taxi was parked outside the New Winter Palace, and we needed a taxi and became friends immediately.

Despite the stories you hear about having to be careful of befriending taxi/kalesh drivers, we got to know Ahmed really well during two holidays at Luxor.

On our last trip he invited us to have dinner with him and his family, and it was a wonderful night. We ate traditional food at his house, and visited family and friends.

We gave small presents to the children and were taken to see cows and donkeys held in great prize. Ahmeds brother was most taken with a friend we took with us, Jamie, and held his hand when we went for a walk around - they were both 17 years old, and it would not happen in our country but seemed so natural there.


Egytp is the land of our dreams, and we have spent the happiest of all our holidays together there.


Thank you for reading this,
shukran, and inshalla we visit your wonderful country again very soon

vacation NEW
by: Travis P

I had got up very early. I wanted to visit the town, take a stroll through the market, and see how the Egyptians lived away from the noise and the frenetic pace of Cairo, where I had been a few days before. Walking through the dusty streets, admiring the fruit and vegetables displayed on blankets on the ground, I began to understand how vital the Nile is for these people: a mode of communication, of course, but also an indispensable source of water to nourish the crops.
