ADVENTURES IN EGYPT

Thursday, 28 May 2015


I've been away from the blogging world for two months.  I have no excuse except the real world has got in the way. I know "they" say you have to stick at this to be successful but sometimes it's just a bit of a struggle to sit down and write when you've got so many other things on your plate. But it should be about quality over quantity, so I guess I've saved you the pain of many naff posts.

Anyway....I've been up to lots in the past two months including 10 days away in Sharm el-Sheikh.

I sunbathed, drank too much (one day I was so hungover I couldn't even last 5 minutes out of my room), drove a speedboat, saw dolphins swimming in the Red Sea, went in a submarine (more like a glass bottom boat, if I'm honest) and saw the type of fish I've only ever seen in cool BBC1 nature docs.

Instead of talking through absolutely everything, I thought I'd include a little photo diary for y'all to enjoy.

Couple photo on the beach - trying not to be taken away with the waves.
The fishes you could spot from the jetty, overlooking the coral.
Trying to cool off in the Red Sea.
Not very tanned yet.
Shipwreck - they didn't realise how shallow the water was.
Enjoying being on the speedboat.
First dolphin we saw from the boat.
I was allowed to drive the boat, and you could definitely tell I can't drive. Driving straight wasn't something I mastered!
Fish from the submarine.
Waiting for a huge shark to pop up in the submarine - sadly didn't happen.
Inside the submarine after our trip.
Bob Marley the Camel.
It was too hot to stay on the sun loungers without going in the pool every 15 minutes.
Best steak I've ever had.
Hammock life.

It was a lovely holiday and I made some great memories. My highlight was seeing dolphins swimming so close to our speedboat. It was such a magical moment to see them in the wild, and so closely, as opposed to in a tank or on TV.

I'd definitely go back to Sharm el-Sheikh, and in particular our hotel. The hotel had all the facilities you could need; multiple pools, different restaurants (Indian, Italian, Steak, Seafood amongst the normal canteen style), a spa (I had a coconut and coffee scrub as well as two massages) and other things I'm forgetting to mention.

My only regret was not going to Cairo to see the pyramids, which we originally planned to do, but we were unsure about how safe it was with the person organising it for us. If I do go back, and I hope I do at some point in the future, I will 100% go to Cairo.

I've been back in reality for a month now, and we're already looking at booking another holiday! We have a few ideas so keep your eyes peeled because I'm sure I'll mention it on here soon.

I hope you're having a great week!
