Pyramids of Giza – A Top Travel Experience

I can’t believe I’m here.

Am I actually here? I ask myself. It’s one of those places we see in books, we read about, but we never actually believe we’d ever visit… well not when you grew up in New Zealand, on the other side of the world at least.

The vast plains of desert. The camels. The people. Looking past all that you just see these sculptures that are ginormous and wonder how did anyone back in those times ever create these? How? Some things can’t be answered 100%. There are ideas and research that goes into it, but these pyramids are so ancient that I don’t think anyone can really be sure how they were created.

They are one of the incredible 7 wonders of the world and walking amongst them, inside one even is amazing. So much so, that I couldn’t leave it out of one of my Top 30 Experiences before I’m 30.
