The border into Egypt is notorious. Overland online forums are littered with horror stories of peoples' experiences and top tips to make getting through that little bit easier. It even took Ewan McGregor and his money-no-object, months-of-preparation ... Read more >


the green green grass of jebel ahkdar (rose)

shameless plugs
