Flying from Cairo to Aswan you get a sense of the size of Egypt, mile after mile of sandy desert interspersed with the odd abandoned building and the occasional siting of the green belt along the Nile River. As far as the eye can see it’s nothing but orange sands and blue sky. On arrival […]

Hot Air Ballooning in Luxor

After a hideous 3:45am wake up call it was time to stroll the 50 meters from our cruise boat to the motorboat which would take us across the Nile River to a waiting minibus. A short (but fast!) 10 minute drive through the darkness of the West Bank before sunrise and a briefing from our […]
