Chasing Stars

This is not the first time to travel Dahab Sinai, i usually travel to this amazing place twice a year, but this time was so special to my heart and soul for many reasons.


First, my company was so fun, crazy and relaxing, i had my life time friend and partner in crime Noha Fawzy, and i had also another very dear friend to my heart that i find her one of the strongest women i have ever knew in my life, Noha Wagih, the 2 Nohaz had an amazing effect on me, especially when I remembered some of the past and watch how life and fate brought us all here in this location, at this time, with this positive vibes and amazing spirit, the other 2 persons were amazingly funny and i truly appreciated every single minute with them. It feels good to leave friends that long time and turn back to find out that nothing had changed, same laughter, same young spirit. When you reach your 40s, and still feel 18 years old, this is a blessing. This trip left me 100% convinced with the idea of "AGE IS JUST A NUMBER".

Second, My plan for this trip had included so many activities of visiting certain places to serve my photography purpose, i wanted to go to Nawibaa and Taba especially Salah eldin citadel and my beloved Fiord bay to take some pictures, i also wanted to go some places in Dahab that i had never visited before,  after i made my plan, i found out that i had to drop some places for the sake of staying with my friends a bit longer, i said, ok, it doesn't matter, i will come for another visit again. what happened after was a total plan from god that left me so appreciative and grateful. It turned out that i visited all the places i wanted to be in except Fiord Bay and Salah Eldin citadel,  i went to Nawibaa for 2 hours only to pick something for my friend and the result was i visited the place i wanted to be in:) , this day was out of my normal world really, i went to the canyon where i had a nice breakfast and met my friends, then we used a truck to reach the blue hole, then we used a boat to reach Abou galoum, then another truck to reach the blue lagoon, the whole experience was so fast yet so adventurous and the blue lagoon seemed to me as a place cut down from heaven.

Third, i had a plan to try the star trail photography for the first time, i had to read about it a lot before traveling, and i made my plan for choosing the location and the timing of it, i listened to some tips from friends and i was a bit worried that i may fail to do this picture, the whole trip was so amazing full of laughter and more trucks to ride to reach the mountain at night, but the 45 minutes i spent in front of my DSLR to take the photo was a complete transe of mind, that i truly traveled with my soul to the core of the galaxy  and visualized the picture before i processed it later, i didn't travel alone, i took with me all the people who inspired me this year and made me believe in my capabilities, no need to state names, as they know themselves.

Each time i visit Dahab, it is always that feeling that i leave a piece of my soul at this place, someone told me, "you are leaving your parts bit by bit, so when when you travel there to settle, you will travel light"

I am looking forward to travel very soon to TABA to visit FIORD Bay And Salah Eldin Citadel.
