Exploring Ancient Egypt
Take a camel ride around the pyramids.
We had an amazing 4 day cruise down the river on the Nile Adventurer in 2010. Our Egyptologist, Zainab, and the boat staff made the experience a delight! We hope to return soon and experience more of Egypt.
We arrived into Cairo after a long redeye flight across the US and to NY, then onto Amsterdam and finally Egypt. We were so happy to be there finally. The flight really takes it out of you, especially not sleeping that well on planes. We touched down and they shuttled us through customs and we were met by our hosts and driver who were holding …
The Pyramids and Cairo City Tour
This morning the hotel staff took us on a tour of the city after and huge breakfast with some amazing highlights: fresh squeezed orange juice, homemade greek yogurt, every kind of breakfast meat you could want accompanied by every kind of egg dish you could image, nuts, dates, coffee, teas, and more! They rolled us down the hall for the hotel …
Boarding the Nile Adventurer in Aswan
This morning, we boarded a flight to Aswan which was a very short trip and easily done. At the airport they met us with an air-conditioned bus and cold towels to wipe your face and neck.
We drove a 20-30 minute trip in the bus to Aswan. Zainab commented on several buildings as we passed through the towns. We were outside the city now and most …
Food poisoning and a Galabaya party
Last night was not very restful, and so this morning I woke up a little nauseous and not ready for the big day ahead. At about 6 o'clock this morning we started to set sail. I was a little nervous about the movement because I easily get motion sickness. However, the movement was so subtle that you can hardly tell you are moving unless you look …
Our Last Day on board
I woke up this morning, had breakfast and went to the top deck of the ship. The sun had just risen and the river was peaceful as we cruised along. I took pictures of the fisherman and farmers out on the banks. I wonder what they think of all these boats filled with tourists passing by to look at the ancient wonders of their country.
We dock …
Disembarking and off to Sharm al Sheikh
We got up this morning, ate breakfast, and went off to the Luxor airport. Flying on Egypt Air has been an experience. The pilots do not seem to be as precise in their calculations and we had a hard landing in Aswan when we arrived. They say the difference between flying in Egypt versus anywhere else is that the passengers burst out in applause …
Last Day in Cairo
It has been a long, wonderful day and we are now in the Cairo airport at 2:30 in the morning waiting for our 4:30 flight to Amsterdam and then home to the US. My goodness the time has passed so quickly! We slept in this morning until 9am. Which usually for me doesn't feel like a long time but here in Egypt the sun seems to rise so early and …
