Salaam Alekum or Bonjoir All, Another day and another train journey. Wandered out of the odd hostel and eventually flagged down a red petit taxi and headed off to the train station. Arrived with minutes to spare. The train carriages were compartmentalised ... Read more >


Casablanca, Morocco

MOROCCO | Tuesday, 24 Feb 2009 | Views [382]

Hi All, This blog entry probably reads a bit better as my proof reader is back at my side as I type....  Just found out that a bomb went off in the market we visited in Cairo in the islamic section the day after leaving. A little chilling to know that ... Read more >

Cairo 2

EGYPT | Sunday, 22 Feb 2009 | Views [232]

Hi All, Spent the day essentially in the hotel room recovering. Was nice to just lay around and read a book and relax. Even wove a new watch band for Vanessa as her 'genuine' leather one from Rio de Janeiro broke. We needed and enjoyed the rest with ... Read more >


Sinai

EGYPT | Sunday, 22 Feb 2009 | Views [313]

Hi All, Got to say that travelling with a day pack is so much easier than having all our gear. Jumping on buses and taxis is so easy. Caught the bus from Alexandria to Port Said. Only a couple of hours. Arrived at the bus station with no map. The lonely ... Read more >


Alexandria

EGYPT | Sunday, 22 Feb 2009 | Views [323]

Hi All, Getting the train ticket at the Cairo station was remarkable easy. There were tourist police who helped. Waited out the side of the station as no seats outside after watching a crazy man dancing around trying to catch what appeared to be the ... Read more >

Hi All, On the mini bus and off to visit temples on our way to Luxor. Edfu. What a massive temple! the carvings were huge and impressive. Just getting to the ticket office looked like a challenge as there is a fence that guides you past 100m of souvenir ... Read more >

Nile Valley Tour

EGYPT | Monday, 16 Feb 2009 | Views [271]

Hi All, Caught the train to Aswan at 1230am. The train should have been suitable for sleep but...we had tickets next to the door on the carriage; my seat reclined but didn't lock; the tea person came along every hour asking for tea; the egyptians slammed ... Read more >

Hi All, Glad to get out of the port of Nuweiba after immigration. We already had a plan and headed out to a beachside area called Tarabin and onto Sababa camp. The taxi driver tried to get lots of money out of us but we already knew the correct price.... Read more >
