Tut's Gold and My Thoughts

Sunday, 10 Jul 2022 | Views [78]

It’s my final full day in Egypt. I’ll admit my time in Cairo has been OK but not what I expected. In a few days I’ll be meeting my brother, Dave, for the first time and I feel like the anticipation of that has thrown my concentration ... Read more >

Pyramids of Giza

Friday, 8 Jul 2022 | Views [220]

The oldest and only remaining of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World are the Great Pyramids of Giza. Few structures in the world, if any, have inspired writers, artists, historians, academics, archaeologists, photographers, filmmakers, and ordinary ... Read more >

Balloons and Temples

Tuesday, 5 Jul 2022 | Views [101]

Scuba diving, temple exploring, sailing, feasting, hitchhking, and hot air ballooning...in Egypt, I seem to have done it all from the prototypical to the extraordinary. Today I would ride in a hot air balloon for the first time. Even at 37, I'm still ... Read more >

It's Independence Day in the USA but I'm here in Egypt for the 4th of July exploring temples. Abdallah advised me to allow for a large chunk of the day at Karnak since it's the world's second largest temple complex (the largest is Angkor Wat). Covering ... Read more >

Valley of the Kings

Sunday, 3 Jul 2022 | Views [131]

Heaving on glops of suncreen and donning my Barmah kangaroo leather hat, I felt like Indiana Jones as I explored the Valley of the Kings and a lot in between today. After a few days in Aswan, last night I took the train to Luxor. My plan to sail on a ... Read more >

Abu Simbel

Friday, 1 Jul 2022 | Views [220]

No matter how many lessons on Ancient Egypt you had in history class or how many times you've seen hieroglyphics in National Geographic or on the History Channel, nothing will prepare you for seeing them in person. The temples of Abu Simbel are an architectural ... Read more >

Red Sea Dive

Monday, 27 Jun 2022 | Views [122]

As with some of my journeys, this one started off on the wrong foot but I've managed to right the ship quickly. Being Juliett-less (drone-less) in Egypt is a minor inconvenience but how about a dive into the Red Sea? As one of the world's great diving ... Read more >

In the Words of Herodotus...

Sunday, 26 Jun 2022 | Views [158]

It is known as the "Gift of the Nile." A country, a land, a civilization that has existed for more than five millennia. A place where many great discoveries and inventions have taken place. The equinoxes, pi, the pulley, and the first writing system, ... Read more >
