Ever since I was a small child sitting in my world cultures class at school, I have dreamed about Egypt. I would fantasize about the pyramids and sphinx and how they could possibly have been built so long ago. So, when we booked our trip to Egypt earlier this year, I was very excited.
We expected our friends to be just as excited for us to go, but mostly we heard the phrase “Oh I would never go there. Is it safe?” and the ones that had been to Egypt had been to the Red Sea to dive or boat and never traveled through the country to experience the Pyramids. And they never travel to Aswan or Luxor or went south to Abu Simbel.
What we experienced in Egypt was a people that were more than willing to help (sometimes for small tip), who laughed easily and would go out of their way to take care of you.
Are there parts of the country where you should not travel to? Yes. But overall, after almost a lifetime of dreaming about the desert, the pyramids and of course the pissed off mummy coming back to life to seek revenge, the country did not disappoint.
But planning the trip took a bit more preparation than going to Europe.
