First Thoughts After a Trip to Egypt

I am currently traveling through Egypt on a 10 day tour with Abercrombie & Kent. The majority of those people who offered a reaction to my doing this trip other than, “Can’t wait to see photos!” usually said something along the lines of, “Please be safe.” or “OMG I can’t believe you’re going there. Is it safe to do that?”.

Without getting into the why behind that question because I don’t like to be too political or controversial on my blog, I do still want to say, YES. That is, I think yes it is safe to travel here to Egypt. And most especially with a company like Abercrombie & Kent.

I have been very impressed with how kind, funny and knowledgeable the Egyptian people are. And above all, I am impressed by how proud they are of their country and its rich history. They are Egyptians first. They are Christians or Muslims or whatever other religion they follow, second. They are political but in so far as it leads to positive change for their country, not in a way that they shove their beliefs and ideals down your throats.

Are there some bag eggs now and again, I suppose so, they’re human after all. But I haven’t met any that stood out to me yet. We’re four days into our journey and it is flying by. Here are some photos from my time thus far, taken in and around Cairo or Luxor.

Also, a colleague of mine published a wonderful primer of how to follow along with our trip across all social media channels and you can see that here.

I’ll be sharing more in the coming months of course, and you can also follow along as I try to most mostly live from our trip on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

    Egypt is top of my bucket list. I’ve wanted to go since I was a little girl and have been interested in ancient Egypt for as long as I can remember. I’ve even paid for two trips to Egypt, but life foiled those trips two years in a row. Someday I WILL see Egypt. For now I have to live vicariously through you.
