The majestic land of Pharaohs and the Great Pyramids, Egypt is chaotic and beautiful. However, nowhere else in the world can you find the ambience and the wealth that Egypt offers to travelers. While most people travel to Egypt to see the Pyramids, the country offers many more wonders to explore. Not surprisingly, Egypt is Continue Reading ...

The overall travel tour of Egypt. I arrived in Cairo November 13th 2007. Departed Egypt for Jordan April 22nd 2008. Upon the arrival I stayed at the Richmond hotel for six nights. Due to the change in cultures, the smog, and the noise in the largest city in Africa - I took the train to Continue Reading ...

Soon I will be heading to Jordan, most likely in a few days. Nuweiba has been very nice, a good place to ponder the last five months of travel. I am ready to head out, I am not going to wait until May 1st. The heat is on, it will be a very warm summer Continue Reading ...

Like I have said before, last but not the least; Nuweiba is very nice place with very few tourists, its great. This area use to be packed with Israeli tourists, although since the time of the intifada, the Israeli's stopped coming to Nuweiba. Tarabin is the area with all the camps, but nowadays it's like Continue Reading ...

I will be heading to Nuweiba soon. It has been five months since my arrival to Egypt. Most people, including Egyptians look at me like I am nuts for traveling Egypt for so long, although, everyone does have a different perception of time. My perception is that it really hasn't been all that long of Continue Reading ...

The Mountain of Moses - a place and a person most everyone one has heard of. A place that is debated among the so-called scholars of this world, rightly so, they do have a point. Nevertheless, through consciousness by using Kensiology muscle testing, Mount Sinai is where Moses got the Ten Commandments and the laws Continue Reading ...

This is the Mountain of St Katherine, the tallest mountain in Egypt.I just posted over 100 pictures on shutterfly.I decided to head back to Dahab for a few days before going to Nuweiba. I was able to take a close look at the Middle East Lonely Planet book from a fellow traveler for what my Continue Reading ...

I have been basking in the area of Mount Sinai, which the town is called St Katherine and also El Milga which defines as - meeting place. This is a wonderful area, the energy is fantastic. I have throughly explored the whole area and climbed Mount Sinai - Moses Mountain is what people call it Continue Reading ...

Quick note - I am totally recharged and ready to head out of Dahab. House-sitting/Couch-surfing has made all the difference. A person's needs are always met in the moment - if direction is provided . It has been an interesting stay here in Dahab. I have observed different sides to this dive haven of a Continue Reading ...

A quick update: I am feeling much better then I was last week. Due to the temperature change from cool Port Said and Ismaillia to extremely Hot Dahab, I found myself extremely dehydrated. I went to the pharmacy and got a re-hydration solution. Also, I have been having major digestion pain, I decided to start Continue Reading ...

I went snorkeling in a place called Blue Hole just a few miles from Dahab. A very spectacular under-sea world. The fish in this area are truly amazing with all sorts of different colors. I thought Hawaii was good, this place is great. Snorkeling is so peaceful and pleasant. The coral reefs are the best Continue Reading ...

The sea of Aqaba, an amazing calm sea, pleasant, serene. I went snorkeling today in the sea very close to the hotel. What an amazing place. The coral, and the amount of beautiful fish is indescribable. Major amounts of beautiful fish swimming an arms lengths away. There isn't any comparison to Hawaii. What a pleasant Continue Reading ...

I have arrived in Sinai. The bus ride was long, although Sinai is a lovely, beautiful place. I had to connect buses in Sharm El-Sheikh - I have no interest in going to Sharm, what a rip off of a place. I will be in Dahab for a least two weeks, which I will be Continue Reading ...

I must say Port Said is a very nice place, a major contrast from Luxor. Everyone is friendly and honest, for the most part. Of Course, when writing regarding positive and negative qualities; it's not to be taken as an absolute generality. The effect of an ocean is my theory; the Mediterranean Sea releases an Continue Reading ...

The Suez canal, a very important thoroughfare for the world trade, is one of the greatest feats of modern engineering. Construction started by Pharaoh Nekau II between 610-595 BCE, at least a first record of canal digging. Work really began in 1859 and the Suez canal was completed in 1869 with a celebration. Ownership remained Continue Reading ...

I arrived in Port Said yesterday, I must say, the town is very easy going, lazy, quite, and relaxed. I have noticed towns that are built on an ocean seem to have a special relaxed atmosphere. I will be staying for a good four or five days. The hotel I went with is only 22LE Continue Reading ...

Today I went to visit the Pyramids for the last time. I was able to go into the second pyramid with the limestone cap. A great alternative if you don't want to pay out the high cost for the great pyramid. Although the great Pyramid is worth going in. I decided to walk around the Continue Reading ...

Here is the Temple of Hathor which is in Abu Simbel next to the Great Temple of Ramses II. This temple was also cut out of the small mountain which is the area. Remember what I mentioned about the two anointed ones and the Great Almighty Divine Creator - here is another fine example. The Continue Reading ...

The Temple of Philae is on Agilkia Island in Aswan. The temple was moved from the submerged island of Philae. The temple was set up just as it was when on the island of Philae. During my visit the temple was pack with tourists, this temple is difficult to visit without a crowd because a Continue Reading ...

I have left Upper Egypt and have arrived into Lower Egypt - Cairo. How pleasant it is, I must say. Much more opened minded, educated, easy going people here in Cairo. Despite the smog and traffic, Cairo is a special place in its own way. Cairo is filled with a mix of people. Interesting enough Continue Reading ...
