Last time I posted I was still in Morocco, well I am now in Portugal in the Azores for a few days from Lisbon and the month is almost over. Lisbon is my home for the month of March. I said I was heading to Essaouira, Morocco which I did along with Agidar which is another Moroccan beach town. Just loved Essaouira, so relaxing a place after spending so much time in Marrakesh. I also enjoyed Marrakesh more than I thought I would, being in the Medina as much as I was turned out to be much more interesting and fun.

From February 20th – February 28th I went to Egypt. This was another solo trip which consisted of flying to Cairo, then to Aswan and traveling up the Nile to Luxur, back to Cairo and a day in Alexandria (Loved Alexandria). I’ve been to Cairo before to see the Pyramids but not on the Nile on a cruise. I booked the trip as a tour but ended up being the only person on the tour which gave me private guides everywhere I traveled. Cairo is one of the largest cities in the world, so much traffic and so much history with amazing architecture and religious meaning (and the best falafel’s in the world).

Egypt is a fascinating place to see because there really is no place like it on earth. Luxor and Aswan did not disappoint either. My guide gave me so much information it was overwhelming to try and understand what this civilization accomplished so many years ago, it is mind boggling. The cruise itself is a fantastic way to see the areas mentioned and it is probably the best way to do it. Almost all of the ships are the same size and it depends on what company you book with, be it luxury, middle or low class you all end up at the same locations in the end anyway. I felt extremely safe while traveling throughout Egypt and the touristy areas were not as crowded as I was expecting which of course is a great thing. The one thing that did disappoint me was that the new Egyptian museum in Cairo was not open as of yet, it is already a few years behind schedule and was supposed to be open by the time I arrived, hopefully by the end of this year. Egypt is a must see for any traveler.
