Holiday of Awesome- Egypt wrap up

Even with all the travelling we have done, nothing could prepare us for the amazing sites we were to see in Egypt. Every single day we would say 'oh, NOTHING could beat this..' and every morning we were wrong. I literally cannot rave enough about the country- 4000 year old buildings that still have colour in the paintings, temples with statues almost 100 feet high, mummified Pharaohs that still have skin and hair, hieroglyphics and pictures depicting world history- from Ramses to Alexander the Great; the amazing sites go on and on.

I feel awed by the things that we saw on this trip. It is so amazing to have witnessed such rich history and be able to say, I've walked inside a pyramid, seen Tutankhamun's mask, cruised down the Nile, stood in front of the Sphinx, explored The Valley of The Kings and been rendered speechless by the seemingly never-ending deserts of Egypt. Here are a few of my favourite highlights.





  



Again for anyone interested (and I really do hope you check them out- Egypt was so fabulous!), I've posted some more photos on my Facebook Page.

A huge thank-you to everyone who followed us on this journey; The Holiday of Awesome was a life (and bank) changing experience. I feel honoured to have been able to share this with you and can't wait for our next overseas adventure!

  2. Such great photo's - Egypt is totally on my top 10 list of places to travel. As we speak I'm in Brisbane!! Unfortunately its an early morning transfer and I will be flying to Auckland at 8:25, otherwise we could have met IRL! Maybe later this year, I went to Melbourne and Sydney last year, maybe this is the year to visit Brisbane:D

  5. I really hope to travel to Egypt one day, it sounds like a dream come true. I love the pictures, the one with your boyfriend and his leg kicked up made me giggle out loud, yep I'm starting a new LOL and it is GOL. I can't imagine what life must have been like 4,000 years ago but the relics/buildings from that time fascinate me endlessly. Such gorgeous pictures dear, thanks times 194023942390 for sharing them with us.

  10. In a way, I think to me, it doesn't seem real. It's so amazing and just, mind blowing, that I think it's something I'd have to see to believe. I'm glad you had a great time!

    1. I agree Nat, even walking around I said to Ben that it's somewhere I have wanted to go for such a long time- that actually being there seemed like a fairy tale. I felt so awed by the history. I can't wait to go back!
