Photography Friday: E is for ‘Egypt’

Sunrises, Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, Snorkeling… this could be a dream, but it’s not it’s Egypt! 

A few years ago I managed to check out a country that was temporarily safe to visit. Staying in the resort-ready Sharm el Sheikh I was overwhelmed by luxury and loneliness. It was Christmas and a bit of a treat for myself, but not quite the right place to go solo. Still, my day trips to Cairo, Mt. Sinai, Ras Mohammad and even Petra in Jordan were amazing.

Here’s a few photographs from Egypt to celebrate ‘Photo Friday’ this week! Enjoy!

If only summer was this warm in the UK! Egypt will hold some incredible memories in my heart for years to come. It really is a unique destination.
