Now is the Time fo Egypt...

Jump to last reply

We are still on our trip and it's going to take me a while to get around to my trip report but just incase anyone is considering Egypt I want to let you know it's a great time to come. We are having the most magnificent time. Yesterday we were at Abu Simbel in the afternoon and we had the site to ourselves, truly magical. For five minutes in Cairo we had the Tutenkamun room on our own with only the mask of the boy king and the guard for company!
I hate crowds and mass tourism and given that Egypt is really one of the original tourist destinations with centuries of visitors it's a real treat to find such calm at the sites.

We feel safe and welcome and despite the news the British Foriegn a Office warnings haven't changed. Currently there appears to be more social disruption where we
Ive in California than here in Aswan!
