Travel - Egypt
Another place that I have been fortunate to visit is Egypt. I went to Egypt just before their 2012 election and so it was a little safer at the time than it is now.
Of course, the highlight was visiting the pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza in Cairo. Honestly speaking though, the experience wasn’t quite as magical as I had imagined.
From the minute we got off the tour bus, we were bombarded with hawkers. I understand that they are trying to earn a living, but this hampered the experience a little as they were everywhere, even past the entrance point. Be warned!
Despite this, it was still great to see the pyramids in person and the bustle of Cairo is an experience in itself.
